What is a Hand Therapist?
A Hand Therapist is either a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist who has pursued additional training in the treatment of upper limb conditions from the shoulder to the finger tips. A recognized hand therapist has achieved a minimum of 3600 treatment hours specific to upper limb conditions. Most hand therapists are members of the Australian Hand Therapy Association, (AHTA) which is Australia's only professional Association representing hand therapists and has just over 300 members nationally.
Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are 4-year trained allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.
AEPs are the highest qualified professionals for the delivery of safe and effective exercise, particularly for those with health concerns.
