Hand, Wrist & Upper Limb Rehab Fracture Clinic

Hand Therapy For Fractures

My Specialist Rehab Fracture Clinic is for those who have recently suffered a broken bone in the hand, wrist, elbow or shoulder. Are you still experiencing swelling, pain, stiffness, weakness or ongoing disability? No matter what point you are in your journey, I provide individualised fracture aftercare to address any roadblocks you might encounter on your road to recovery.

I am a leading upper limb and hand specialist located in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As an experienced Occupational Therapist (OT) and Certified Hand Therapist (CHT), you can be confident that I have the expertise to provide you with individualised assessment and treatment for your fracture. Whether you have been treated in a splint, cast or have had surgery.

I comprehensively treat the following fractures:

Hand Fractures

Thumb and finger metacarpals, proximal phalanges, middle phalanges and distal phalanges.

Wrist Fractures

Distal radius, distal ulna, scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate.

Forearm Fractures

Radius or ulna

Upper Arm Fractures

Humerus with and without radial nerve injury.

Shoulder Fractures

Ordering & Interpreting X-rays

Not all healthcare professionals can order or interpret X-Rays. As an Advanced Practitioner, I have received specialist training as a referrer under the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R).

I also possess specialist training and experience in interpreting radiographic imaging of the upper limb and hand in my role as an Extended Scope Practitioner. Whether you are looking for an X-ray to be ordered for you or require advice on imaging that has already been taken, I can help.

More information can be found on my x-ray page.
