Get a grip.
There’s nothing worse than feeling out-of-control and nothing takes control away from you faster than injuring your hands. All the things we use to make our mark on the world; computers, phones, steering wheels, even cutlery, all suddenly become insurmountable obstacles if you’d damaged your digits.
Fortunately the Studio’s team of Hand Therapists are here to help. The Studio is the only ACC contractor for hand therapy in Queenstown. That means two things: firstly hands are a big part of what we do – our hand therapy team have spent years training in the area and are supported by the New Zealand Association of Hand Therapists.
Secondly ACC recognises that expertise and so subsidises accident-related hand therapy treatment with us. Chances are if you’ve injured your hands, your work ability to work is suffering, so it’s in everyone’s interests to get you back to one-hundred-percent as soon as possible (you can find our hand therapy rates on our physio price list).
Most of our clients are referred to us by local medical professionals, but you don’t need a referral to see us directly. If that thumb still isn’t feeling right after you caught it in the door a couple of weeks ago, it might be a good idea to organise a time for us to take a look at it.
We’re committed to making sure all of our hand therapy clients get seen within the first week of their injury. Sometimes that means creating an out-of-hours appointment that isn’t visible on our online booking system. If you’re booking an initial appointment and you can’t see any availability online – call us on 03 409 0078 and we’ll make an arrangement for you.
