Monday, August 02 2010
Mondays have become hand-days at Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy's Bega clinic, with physiotherapist David Schmidt joining the team there. David has many years experience as a physiotherapist, most recently as the physiotherapy manager at Bega and Pambula Hospitals. His area of specialist expertise is the treatment of hand and upper limb conditions. David will be working at Sapphire Coast Physiotherpy's Bega Clinic on Mondays alongside Naomi White. Naomi is a specialist hand therapist and has been working in Bega for the past 20 years. So the residents of Bega Valley and surrounds now have available one of the best resourced specialist hand physiotherpay clinics in rural NSW.

"Our expertise will not go unused, the hands and arms are one of the most commonly injured parts of the body", Naomi explained. Almost everybody has had a wrist or hand injury at some time in their life. It may have been the result of a sporting or other recreational injury, a simple fall, repetitive use of the hand or wrist at work, or even something as common as osteoarthritis or tendonitis bought on by the ageing process.

Because our hands are constantly involved in almost all activities we undertake, and because a minor hand or wrist injury can easily progress to a debilitating problem if not treated appropriately, it is essential that we seek experienced care when they are not operating at 100% efficiency. It is wonderful therefore, that David is now working with us and making his hand, wrist and upper limb physiotherapy expertise more widely available to residents of the area. We will be able to assess and help more people to regain pain free hand function.
