Splints are made out of a lightweight and waterproof thermoplastic material that can be beautifully contoured over the skin and remoulded when required. They are suitable for a variety of conditions and age groups.
Hate a bulky, heavy and non-waterproof plaster cast? We do too. Our casts are waterproof and much lighter, which mean you can get wet and get on with your daily activities (safely, of course).
Dry needling is a soft tissue treatment technique used to treat muscular pain and tension. It works by eliciting muscle relaxation and stimulating blood circulation to the area.
Exercises, particularly strengthening, is an important aspect in recovering from an injury. Whether you have a fracture, overuse injury or arthritis, you will benefit from a graded and guided programme to assist with your recovery and reduce your risks of re-injury.
If you have been troubled by pain or deformity in your joints, hand therapy may be able to help you. Treatment often involves splinting, paraffin wax treatment, exercises and activity modification.
POST SURGICAL REHAB
Hand therapy is often an essential part of recovery following surgeries such as carpal tunnel release and flexor tendon repair. Hand therapists provide invaluable advice on swelling and scar management, return to work, and appropriate exercises at different stages of healing.

Many conditions can cause pain in your wrist including ganglion, tendinitis, arthritis and ligament damage. Getting an accurate assessment of your wrist is crucial to finding the right treatment and solution for your wrist pain.
MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN & TIGHTNESS
A common symptom amongst desk workers, labourers and musicians due to repetitive loading. It can often be an accompanying sign of injuries such as tendinitis.
ARTHRITIS PAIN & JOINT DEFORMITY
Splints and soft braces can provide pain relief by supporting sore joints such as the thumb and wrist. Splints may also help correct or straighten a joint deformity, often common in the fingers. Strengthening exercises targeting specific muscles can help to improve joint stability and therefore pain.
HANDWRITING & FINE MOTOR ISSUES
Handwriting issues such as poor legibility or pain with extended writing are becoming increasingly prevalent among children and teenagers as we shift towards a digitalised society. Many factors, not just the pencil/pen grip, can impact on one’s handwriting including posture, joint stability, and eye-hand coordination. Early intervention is key to avoiding difficulties in later years of life.
