Bay Hand Therapy has a team of dedicated and experienced physiotherapists who are all registered hand therapists or associate hand therapists (Hand Therapy New Zealand).Through further post graduate study and training, our therapists are equipped to provide advanced and up to date rehabilitation for our patients helping them achieve an optimal outcome from their injuries.
We are registered with ACC and also see private patients. We work closely with hand surgeons, GPs, other physiotherapists and health professionals as required. We accept referrals from these professionals, but also accept self-referrals and are able to fill out ACC claims forms on your behalf (in the case of an accident related injury).

At Bay Hand Therapy Ltd we assess and treat injuries of the hand and upper limb (from the elbow to the finger tips) including:
We also see post-surgical patients - both elective surgery and trauma surgery.
On the first appointment an assessment is performed where we aim to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan for the patient.
An initial assessment involves taking a verbal history from the patient and then performing a physical examination on the affected part of the limb(s). It is from this history that a treatment plan and set of goals can be established.
Treatment may involve:
Follow up appointments involve reassessment and treatment techniques as above.
Bay Hand Therapy Ltd opened in February 2007 in order to provide previously absent Hand Therapy services to the Western Bay of Plenty area. Recognising a lack of specialised hand therapy services in this area, Danielle Ellis moved back to her hometown and set up the practice. The practice has grown steadily and now employs 4 other Hand Therapists.
We are centrally located at 57 Fraser Street (Memorial Park end). Click here for a location map.
