Flexout Health are leaders in hand therapy.

All therapists have completed specialised study in hand and upper limb rehabilitation and participate in ongoing education to keep abreast of the latest techniques.
What is a hand therapist?
A hand therapist can be an occupational therapist or physiotherapist with additional training in hand, wrist, arm and shoulder conditions. Flexout Health Hand therapists are members of the Australian Hand Therapy Association (AHTA). Our hand therapists liaise with you, your doctor, surgeon, employer, rehabilitation provider and allied health professionals to ensure you receive the best possible care.
How can we help you?
No. It is important to offer education and advice regarding your procedure early to prevent later complications. Attending in the first few days after surgery enables us to focus on control of swelling and pain, change dressings where required, and maintain mobility in unaffected joints.
The frequency of your visits will depend on your problem. Factors to consider include your injury, where you live, whether you have a wound or splint to monitor, and how well you are progressing.
Generally no. A specialised hand therapist is an occupational therapist or physiotherapist who has completed additional training in the management of hand, wrist and arm problems to ensure you receive the highest standard of care.
In Australia, physiotherapists and occupational therapists are first contact practitioners, so a referral is not required to attend for treatment. There are, however, a few exceptions (motor vehicle third party claims and Medicare claims) where you will need to see your doctor prior to attending.
