Hand Therapy

Midtown Hand Therapy provides expert care of conditions involving the elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. We can make customized splints or provide supports and braces to protect injured structures while maximising your function as you recover.

No referral is necessary. Injury related ACC forms can be completed on-site at your initial appointment. Private non-ACC funded treatment is also available. We can refer you for routine diagnostic procedures such as X-ray or ultrasound scans.

We will refer you to your GP or to a Hand Surgeon (orthopaedic or plastic surgeon) if required for a second opinion or more extensive investigations such as MRI or CT scans.

We have an on-site gym for individualised rehabilitation programmes if necessary to restore optimal function as soon as possible.
