Hunter Hand Rehabilitation Centre opened in 2013 and specialises in management of hand and upper limb injuries and conditions. Our newly fitted out premises in Charlestown has been custom designed and equipped for this purpose.
Our director and principal, Dion, is a Certified Hand Therapist and full member of the Australian Hand Therapy Association. He is skilled in the assessment and rehabilitation of any injury or condition affecting the hand and upper limb.
In May 2014, Sheree Ashton joined our therapy team. She is a full member of the AHTA and has over 10 years experience in hand therapy.
We are co-located with Hunter Hand Surgery for patients who require further specialist care. We work closely with Hand, Plastic and Orthopaedic surgeons, GP's, Rheumatologists and other Allied Health professionals. We regularly liaise with insurance companies, employers and return to work consultants to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.
We treat privately paying patients, Work Cover, DVA and those referred under the Chronic Disease Management scheme (also called Enhanced Primary Care).
