  Sharon Nash - Hand Therapist- BHSc(Physio), PgCertHSc(Acupuncture), BA, NZRP, RHT(NZAHT)

Sharon Nash - Hand Therapist- BHSc(Physio), PgCertHSc(Acupuncture), BA, NZRP, RHT(NZAHT)

Sharon is a Physiotherapist who has specialised in the treatment of hand, wrist, forearm and elbow injuries, and is a registered Hand Therapist.

Hand and wrist injuries are one of the most common reasons for referral to Accident and Medical Centers, as we all use our hands in a number of different ways. Whether your finger was bent whilst trying to catch a netball, you fell over whilst skiing, you lifted the baby awkwardly, or you’re
having pins and needles in your hands, the ensuing pain and disability can seemingly affect almost every aspect of how you live your life.

Sharon has 10 years experience as a Physiotherapist, and finds Hand Therapy tremendously rewarding, as patients’ progress through their rehabilitation, and achieve their goals. In recognition of the fact that there was no Hand Therapy service available in Auckland City, Sharon has started City Hands to provide excellence in management of hand-forearm disorders in a convenient, central location. At present, injuries that are covered by ACC are fully funded – including both the appointment and the cost of any splinting.
