Look for the logo of an accredited hand therapist, which is someone who has met the stringent guidelines for qualification as set out by the Ahta. This is at least five years experience treating only upper limb injuries, and a wide range of additional education.
A hand therapist studies broadly in the areas of upper limb anatomy and biomechanics, wound care, exercise prescription, interpreting X-rays and scans, and splint making just to name a few – making them a one stop shop for any pre or post operative conditions of the upper limb.
