Upper Limb Physiotherapy Team

Who we are

We are part of the Liverpool Upper Limb Unit.

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

The team works across all four hospital sites. Patients are often seen pre and post operatively following trauma or elective surgery, from orthopaedic consultant clinics or referred via our Upper Limb 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, liaison with a surgeon if required. (Note this is different from your medical pre-op)
  • Post operative therapy as indicated
  • Audit and evaluate the upper limb service offered to patients
  • Team leads work in extended roles in consultant lead fracture and specialised upper limb clinics
