Who we are

Our Upper Limb Physiotherapy Team includes: clinical specialists, senior physiotherapists and staff grade therapists.

Physiotherapists with special interest in the Upper Limb work across all our Physiotherapy locations. Patients are often seen pre and post operatively following trauma or elective surgery, from orthopaedic consultant clinics or referred via our Musculoskeletal Clinical Assessment Service (MCAS). The team works very closely with our Orthopaedic Upper Limb and Fracture Teams.

The team provides:

  • Comprehensive, individual assessment of patients with upper limb conditions
  • Evidenced-based and patient-centred rehabilitation for the upper limb
  • Pre-operative assessment and education
  • Post-operative therapy as indicated
  • Audit and evaluate the upper limb service offered to patients
  • Run our ‘shoulder class’ at our Aintree site for post-operative and end stage rehabilitation.
