What is the DPV Health Hand Therapy Program?

The Hand Therapy Program is aimed at helping you manage your chronic hand/upper limb condition. A chronic condition is an injury, disease or limitation that develops gradually and persists over time. The pain and other symptoms may be mild or severe in nature and tends to impact your day-to-day functioning.

The Program involves assessment of your hand/upper limb condition and designing a therapy program tailored to assist you in achieving your goals, be it improving your quality of life, reducing your pain or gaining independence in your daily activities.

Program 1 – Group Sessions

  • 12-week Group program
  • Some of the benefits of this program include:
  • Build your hand, wrist and upper limb strength
  • Maximise your range of movement
  • Reduce pain and stiffness, increase blood flow with paraffin wax therapy
  • Share and learn from the experiences of your community peers
  • Trialling equipment and aids of daily living

Program 2 – One-on-one sessions

These tend to be more helpful for clients who require:

  • Close monitoring
  • Custom splinting
  • Hands-on treatment
  • Have complex hand conditions

This service is delivered as two separate programs.
