Hand Conditions

We constantly use our hands during our day to day life, and therefore can be very susceptible to injury. It is important to have an accurate and early diagnosis of hand and wrist injuries to ensure good recovery. Hand injuries and wrist injuries can become chronic problems, affecting your work and lifestyle if not treated appropriately.

Our physiotherapists are familiar with a variety of treatment techniques to help your wrist and hand injury recover. Some treatment techniques for wrist and hand injuries may include immobilization, exercise, stretching, splinting and strengthening exercises. This will assist to speed up your recovery and healing and allow you to return to your daily activities without pain.

 

The wrist and hand are complex and consist of multiple structures, including bones, muscles, tendon, and ligaments. Our physiotherapist will perform a comprehensive assessment of your wrist or hand which will allow them to accurately diagnose the cause of your pain or your next course of action, as well as create a detailed treatment plan focused on getting you better.
