Our DVA physiotherapy services in Brisbane

HandsOn Therapy provides services to DVA War Veterans and other eligible patients to improve their quality of life and allow them to remain as independent as possible.

The rehabilitation support and services that are available are intended to assist former Australian Defence Force members, cadets and declared members in recovering as much as possible from a service-related injury or condition. Patients work with an accredited hand therapist to create a program that will aim to help them regain strength, improve fitness and manage their recovery. The goal is to reduce pain, swelling and stiffness while increasing overall joint mobility.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you and your patients! Please keep in mind that this service requires a doctor's referral.
