Elmarie van der MerweHand Therapist
I am an Occupational Therapist that studied at Stellenbosch University and graduated in 2011.

I started my journey as a hand therapist when I was placed at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic hospital in their specialised hand unit for my community service year. From day one I fell in love with treating hand injuries and knew that it was my destiny. I remained in the hands unit for 4 years gaining valuable experience in treating any and all the different injuries and hand problems imaginable.

In 2015 I obtained my Post Graduate Diploma in Hand Therapy from The University of Pretoria and became part of an elite group of specialised hand therapists in South Africa. I have a passion for helping people with hand and wrist pain and assisting them to reach full function after trauma or injuries.

I pride myself in being able to assess and treat the origin of a problem and not merely just the symptoms. I strongly believe that you get excellent results when you treat people with sympathy, care and respect. Trusting your therapist and knowing that they will provide you with the best possible care is the foundation of a powerful therapeutic partnership.

I challenge myself to remain up to date with all the latest treatment modalities and to constantly improve my skills. I am also part of the South African Society of Hand Therapists and I am currently serving a second term on the Gauteng regional committee.
