"My Hand Therapist"

About: Allied Health (Bass Coast Health)

(as a service user),

Allison has been very inventive trying to help find a way to splint an extremely difficult thumb joint. While only expecting to stop it getting worse she has succeeded in improving the joint stability. The bone no longer tries to push out through the skin and I am able to use my thumb more. Wouldn't change a thing. Thank you.

Dear Hyperextended thumb - how wonderful that you have had such a positive outcome from Hand Therapy. While I am extremely pleased to acknowledge Allison as a very skilled clinician who does a wonderful job, your story also recognises how important hand therapy is - it is a hugely important service and I am very pleased that we have been able to assist you. All the best for the future.

Kind Regards,
