COVID-19 Update from Newtown Hand Therapy

Newtown Hand Therapy is committed to providing a safe service during this time.The practice is open, and we have increased our cleaning practices and procedures for the space, our staff and our patients.

We are exploring options to ensure our patients are continued to be appropriately cared for now, and moving into the future.

If you are unwell, or unable to attend, please let us know and we can discuss a Telehealth appointment.

As you get to our front door, there will be sanitiser for you to use before entry. There is a sign at the door that we kindly ask you to read before entry. We will be asking everyone if they feel unwell, if they have travelled overseas in the past month, travelled from Victoria since 08/07/20 or if they have been in contact with a known positive COVID-19 case.

We will continue to follow the advice provided by experts and are checking daily that our procedures and practice are up to date. At any stage, if you have any questions, please call on 9519 4537 or on 9519 4913 and we will be more than happy to help you.

    • Newtown Hand Therapy is a physiotherapy practice dedicated to treatment of the hand and upper limb.

    • Hand injuries and conditions have a significant impact on every aspect of daily life

    • Hand Therapy developed as a sub-specialty of physiotherapy and occupational therapy in the 1970s

    • Hand Therapy involves skills from the physiotherapy & occupational therapy disciplines.

    • NHT has over 20 years experience in Hand Therapy and shares rooms with Active Physiotherapy Newtown, on the ground floor of the Newtown Business Centre - corner of Erskineville Rd and Wilson St.

    All we see at Newtown Hand Therapy are problems concerning fingers & thumbs, wrists, forearms and elbows. We work closely with GPs, Hand Surgeons, Orthopaedic Specialists, Sports Medicine Physicians and most importantly you, to provide the best and most timely care to help you get back on track.

    If you've had an injury, we can organise for you to have an X-ray or other investigations, and plan your management based on the results. If there is concern you need more than a rehab program, we can help facilitate referral to the most appropriate people.

    • You'll notice an electric fry-pan and a sewing machine, so if you need a splint or support it will be custom-made on the spot
