Mudgeeraba 4213 QLD
The Palms Hand Therapy phone, and e mail address will remain the same
The Palms Hand Therapy is a private hand therapy practice, located within Mudgeeraba Hand Clinic.
The aim of Mudgeeraba Hand Clinic is to provide a centre of excellence for the care of patients with any hand or wrist condition.
Our co- located Hand Surgery/Hand Therapy ( physiotherapy and occupational therapy) and hand research services enable an integrated, individualised team based approach to optimise your care.
Hands are strong, expressive, have the ability to manipulate fine objects precisely, and are used in so many aspects of our lives.
Hand therapy may be beneficial following acute injuries such as trauma, as well as chronic conditions. We have a special interest in the assessment and management of injuries and pathologies of the hand, wrist and forearm.
Your consult will involve getting the information you need to know about your injury or condition. It may also involve wound and scar management, techniques for swelling control, custom made splinting or casting, as well as desensitisation, sensory reeducation, prescription of exercises and training to return to hobbies or work specific tasks.
We strive for a personal approach in providing efficient and effective care in all phases of your treatment.
We communicate and work closely with you, your medical doctor or surgeon and case managers to form a close knit team that will guide and support you through your recovery.
Our aim is to utilise our clinical knowledge and skills to assist in your timely recovery, to optimise your return to activity, and ultimately enhance your quality of life!
To help us minimise the spread of COVID -19 and to comply with social distancing, we kindly request:
The waiting room is for patients only
Family members are requested to wait outside.
Maximum of 1 support person to enter the consultation room with the patient.
Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Hand Therapy Clients,
We hope you are all well and safe in these turbulent times.
Due to the escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic and our utmost concern for the safety of our clients and staff, we have decided to adopt the following protocols.
These protocols will be in place for the foreseeable future and we will notify you of any changes as they occur.
1. Normal treatment scheduling for all post-operative clients, or clients with new traumatic injuries or hand wounds that require review and dressings will continue. Strict adherence to recommendations from the Australian Hand Therapy Association for social distancing, strictest infection control and safe practice protocols will be used.
2. To minimise risk to those who must attend face-to-face appointments at this time, we are offering a new Hand Therapy video consultation (tele-health) service via Coviu (a provider). This allows review of your hand and progression of your quality care from the comfort of your own home. We are offering this for routine follow-up appointments that do not require fabrication of protective splints or casts, and for clients who do not require wound review. This will also be particularly useful if we move into lockdown. It can be used for monitoring, checking splints, exercises and other interventions.
We are working hard to continue to provide an excellent service to you even at this time, and our focus is to help you toward full recovery. Our staff are ready to help you and all other members of our community at this challenging time.
Our working hours remain the same: Monday – Friday 8 am – 5 pm. Phones operate between 8:30am-5pm. Please ring the clinic (07) 5601 0348 for appointments.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Please stay safe,
The Palms Hand Therapy team

Your care will continue through this period. However, we have adopted some changes to minimise risk to you, our staff and our community.

To comply with social distancing, we are currently allowing a maximum of one support person.
Video consultations are also available.
