With: Lizzy Smiles
At Entire Physio, we are now offering thermoplastic splinting services for finger, hand and wrist injuries. Heat is used to mould and shape your splint so it is perfectly customised to you. Lizzy has experience in making splints for acute and chronic hand injuries whilst working in the Snowy Mountains; she is also completing further hand therapy training to advance her skills even more.
Currently we offer conservative splinting for the following conditions:
- Mallet finger
- Volar plate injuries
- Central slip injuries
- Boutonniere/swan neck deformities
- Trigger finger
- Ulnar/radial collateral ligament sprain of the thumb
- First CMC joint osteoarthritis
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis when basic support bracing has failed
Please bring any imaging or referral forms to your appointment. You will need to book a specific hand therapy appointment when booking online or alternatively, please call to arrange your appointment with Lizzy.
