We are Whangarei's only dedicated Hand Therapy Clinic with our qualified and experienced Hand therapists offering treatment for elbow hand and wrist injuries. Under our current contract with ACC we are able to offer treatment and customised splints or braces at no surcharge*.
Whangarei Physio and Hand Therapy has the only dedicated Hand Therapy team in Whangarei providing treatment for hand, wrist and elbow injuries. All of our Hand Therapists have completed an extra three years of training to be registered with the New Zealand Association of Hand Therapy (NZAHT). ACC recognise this experience with our clinic funded under the Hand Therapy Contract. This contract enables us to offer no surcharge at present for ACC covered treatments and in the majority of cases this also extends to any customised splints or braces you may require.
Our Hand Therapists also provide treatment to private clients and private insurers.
The hand is a unique and complex part of our anatomy that is vital to good function and quality of life. Early care is paramount for hand injuries to ensure that optimal healing occurs and to achieve the best outcome possible. Left too long many injuries won’t heal properly so the best advice is to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Our Hand Therapists have comprehensive knowledge in:
Wound and scar management.
Splint design and fabrication.
Treatment of pain conditions such as CRPS.
Techniques for restoring movement, strength and function in the elbow, wrist and hand.
You don’t need a referral from a doctor and our Hand Therapists can advise you on the best course of action including referral for further imaging or specialist care if need be.
We look forward to see you in the clinic!
*A charge will apply for treatments and materials that are not covered by ACC or the Hand Therapy Contract.
