What We Do

‘I didn’t realise how much I use my hand before my injury!’

This is the most common thing our clients say to us. We use our hands (and therefore our wrists, arms, elbows and shoulders) for absolutely everything.

Wouldn’t it be nice to go back to taking your hands for granted?

To be able to get dressed in the morning and make your breakfast….to be able to pick up the special little person in your life…to be able to play sport…do your work properly…exercise…drive…just do the things you want to do how you want to do them…without feeling pain or clumsiness.

HERE’S THE THING: It is so easy to get on the road to recovery!
