We offer a range of specialised treatments at each of our clinics, from tailored exercise programs to custom-made splints.

HTC Tailored exercise program

The treatments we offer and how many we use depends on the original diagnosis and the outcome of our initial assessment. Once a patient is happy with what we recommend, we then tailor them to their specific recovery goals.

To understand what your goals are, we ask questions such as: What are your key issues? What parts of your life are being impacted by their injury or condition? And, what do you want to get back to doing?

Knowing this helps focus us on what’s most important. We also find that if people have a goal to work towards, they’re much more motivated to do the exercises we set them outside of appointments – something that’s crucial to recovery.

While we like to set ourselves the goal of achieving a perfect result, this isn’t always possible. However, by focusing on specific needs through a bespoke and tailored treatment program, we can return function and achieve great outcomes.

Treating children

Children mainly come to see us for broken wrists and bones. It’s surprising as we often find kids are more resilient than we give them credit for. They also don’t have as many expectations in terms of treatment and recovery.

Creative treatments

Depending on how your child is coping, we can take things slowly during the appointment or speed up the process. We always try to be as creative as possible with the treatments we offer in order to keep our younger clients engaged.

Colourful casts

Wearing a cast on your arm or wrist isn’t much fun. But because ours come in different colours, it definitely makes having one more bearable. Whatever colour your child picks, they’ll be pleased to know they can draw on it, too – Sharpies work best.

Home care

If your child has a break or fracture, the first 24-48 hours see the most swelling. To reduce it, prop up the injury when they are sitting and put ice at the top of the splint or cast. For other types of conditions, we might ask you to help them do exercises at home.
