Wrist and Hand
“A challenging area that sometimes can take a little longer than other areas, however the treatment undertaken in conjunction with a home exercise programme and good advice will settle this area”
The wrist and hand are areas of your musculoskeletal anatomy that, when injured, sometimes take slightly longer to heal. Despite this, our specialised treatments alongside expert advice and an evidence-based home exercise programme will have a huge impact on your pain levels and function.
The wrist and hand work together in synchronicity to allow you to carry out essential day-to-day tasks and execute fine motor movements.
The hand and wrist are made up of a complicated array of 27 bones and multiple joints, plus countless ligaments, tendons, nerves and blood vessels. They enable the hand to be used in a vast number of ways. It is capable of incredibly precise movements combined with the strength required for gripping and lifting.
