Hand Therapy Clinic

Hand therapy helps patients regain maximum use of the hand after an injury, surgery or onset of a disease. The treatment is provided by a hand therapist, someone who is first trained as an occupational therapist or physiotherapist and then receives additional training in hand therapy. This specialist hand rehabilitation clinic was established twelve years ago and is staffed by three occupational therapists.

The Hand Therapists:

Mrs Bernadette Kelly

Graduated in Occupational Therapy in Dublin in 1983 and gained experience through working in Ireland and England. In Australia Bernadette has worked in the public and private system until establishing her own hand therapy practice in Dandenong in 1993.

Bernadette is an experienced hand therapist and is actively involved in the hand therapy community of Melbourne through support of the Australian Hand Therapy Association activities, participation in research with therapists and surgeons in the area of hand therapy, presenting at seminars and accepting clinical placement students from LaTrobe University each year.
