Experience with care

At the Hand Recovery Centre, we value our clients. Our experience, care and high level of training, combined with our contemporary approach, enable us to provide an in-depth assessment of your injuries and provide the best treatment for your upper limb conditions.

This experience combined with the purpose-built treatment room centrally located at a medical centre in Calamvale, are a winning combination to help you on your path to recovery and enabling you to achieve the best outcome.

Good communication and continuity of care are important to us and we strive to work together with your doctor or specialist and look for the best ways to help you reach full recovery in the quickest possible timeframe.
