About Emma Bamford
Emma took over our hand service which was established by Laura Parker to offer appointments to clients who require hand therapy outside of Monday to Friday nine till five working hours.
She can help evaluate and identify problems affecting the upper limbs as well as provide advice regarding exercise, preventative care, splintage, advice on aids to daily living and ergonomic consultation.
Emma qualified in 2008 at The University of Brighton and then worked in various locations in midlands gaining experience in different areas of physiotherapy including orthopaedics, general elderly medicine and neuromusculoskeletal out-patients.
She became interested in the treatment of hand conditions whilst working at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and then went on to specialise in Hand Therapy in 2008 when she took up a hand therapy position at the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby.
Emma has gained a wealth of experience treating patients in all aspects of hand therapy and can provide immediate exercise and splintage for patients following acute traumatic injuries or after having elective surgery.
She can also provide advice and treatment for people experiencing more long term conditions such as arthritis, carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome, wrist pain and de-quervains.
