Hand and Wrist Pain

Between them, our team of physiotherapists have well over 30 years of experience in treating hand and wrist injuries. We can help you determine the cause of your pain, and work with you to achieve your best possible outcome. If you have just had surgery, Flex also offers expert post-operative rehabilitation. If you live in Perth, our physiotherapists can fit you with customised splints and braces while you wait in our Murdoch rooms. Remember, our Telehealth video consultation service means we can provide many of our services to English-speaking patients wherever they live.

At Flex Physiotherapy we are well aware that some hand and wrist pain disorders are actually referred pain from the neck or shoulder region. We have two therapists with Masters degrees, in Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy, with great expertise in assessing and treating these complex cases.

We offer the most comprehensive 'upper quadrant' care in Perth - everything from your neck to your fingertip, treated by experts, all at one convenient location.
