We provide hand and wrist pain treatments treatment for a wide range of conditions including; carpal tunnel, swollen wrist, hand joint pain and repetitive strain injuries.
The wrist and hand joints are often prone to Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) – especially if you spend many hours typing, whether using a keyboard, tablet or smart phone.
You may also be working them to the bone if you have a physical job which involves heavy or fine machinery and other equipment, or if you’re a manual therapist like us!
In any case, RSI involves chronically tight and overused muscles in the forearm and hands, and a strain through the ligaments which support the joints.
Another common condition in this area is ‘Carpal Tunnel Syndrome’. This can manifest as pain or tingling in the hand, and is due to compression of the nerves which supply the wrist and hand.
It’s also possible to experience symptoms in the wrist and hand as a result of nerve compression high up in the neck, where the nerves to the hand originate from.
Occasionally, we also help patients as part of their rehabilitation process after a fracture or a sporting injury.
