With the unique challenges provided in the Hand Therapy field, Adrian has devoted the last twenty years to treatment of the hand and upper limb.

Working in private practice exclusively in the field of Hand Therapy since 2002, Adrian has been privileged to work side by side with world renown hand surgeons, which has shaped the therapist he has become. Conditions such as mallet fingers, dislocated fingers, arthritic conditions, tendinopathies, fractured wrists, through to complex reconstructive post-operative management such as tendon / nerve repairs or transfers are all part of a day’s work for this hand therapist. Adrian has been involved with research in prognosis following thumb basal joint surgery. Through the AHTA, Adrian has helped regional therapists access education by videoing Interest Group Meetings 2005 to 2016, has been the AHTA Historian and is currently the AHTA Resource & Knowledge Officer.
Adrian returned to Newtown from North Shore Hand Therapy in 2014, and has been managing conditions of the hand and upper limb for the people in the Inner West ever since. Consulting as Newtown Hand Therapy since 2016, Adrian has been exclusively consulting in Newtown since early 2017.
In addition to AHTA membership, Adrian has been an Associate Member of the NSW Hand Surgeons Association since 2011, is a member of Orthopaedic Outreach and is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Hand Therapy has offered Adrian the opportunity to provide voluntary work in Fiji through Orthopaedic Outreach, and he has been involved with providing donated splinting materials, teaching and treating as part of the annual Myers Hand Orthopaedic Team to Lautoka Hospital since 2016.
When not contemplating the wonders of the human hand, one of Adrian’s other passions is finding a wave and surfing whenever possible.
