Ms Liz Gwynne
BSc Occupational Therapy, BA Health & Psychology
I qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2009 from London Southbank University and chose to specialise in hand therapy early on in my career. I have completed further training accredited by British Association of Hand Therapy (BAHT) and am currently studying towards my Master’s degree in this specialist area.
I have developed my skills practising hand therapy within the NHS and private sector working with referrals from trauma and orthopaedics, plastic surgery, rheumatology and neurology. I assess and treat patients with a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. Treatment can include splinting. scar management, oedema management, strengthening and rehabilitation programmes.
I understand how debilitating loss of hand function can be and the impact it can have on physical and emotional wellbeing. I aim to provide bespoke person centred treatment plans to increase function as well as independence in day to day tasks by also providing advice on home aids and adaptations.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Ms Liz Gwynne at Spire include:
Soft tissue injuries (muscle, tendon or ligament)
Complex regional pain syndrome
Work related injuries
Congenital hand anomalies
Paediatric injuries and conditions
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
