We do everything to heal them

The Hands Physio has over 20 years experience in successfully treating hand and upper limb injuries by providing high-quality care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
Since our foundation by Rebecca and Stephen Farr in 1998, we have always been based on principals, not protocols. Rather than just following a universal recipe for treatment, we treat each patient according to their individual needs. We focus on tissue healing and mechanisms of injury, founded upon our expertise and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and our team genuinely cares for each individual who walks through the front door.
