Wrist & Hand Pain

Hand & Wrist Pain

Hand and wrist pain can be particularly debilitating, affecting not only daily tasks but also diminishing one's overall quality of life. Whether you're engaged in intricate handiwork, typing away on a keyboard, or simply going about your day, any discomfort in the hands and wrists can pose significant challenges. At Physio Hub, we specialize in addressing the diverse array of factors that contribute to hand and wrist pain, offering tailored solutions to restore functionality and alleviate discomfort.

The causes of hand and wrist pain are manifold, encompassing both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic factors may include genetic predispositions or mechanical imbalances that affect the delicate structures of the hands and wrists. Extrinsic factors, on the other hand, can be attributed to injuries, repetitive motions, or ergonomic issues in daily activities.

Several external factors can contribute to stress and pain in the hands and wrists:

Repetitive Strain Injuries: Cumulative trauma from repeated motions, such as typing or using tools, can lead to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. Our team is proficient in identifying these patterns and devising strategies to mitigate strain.

Arthritis: Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can affect the joints in the hands and wrists, causing pain and stiffness. Our comprehensive approach involves not only managing symptoms but also addressing the underlying inflammatory processes.

Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons in the hands and wrists can result from overuse or strain. Our therapeutic interventions focus on reducing inflammation and promoting optimal tendon health.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the median nerve in the wrist can lead to numbness, tingling, and pain. Our diagnostic expertise enables us to discern the specific causes and tailor treatments for effective relief.

Fractures and Sprains: Traumatic injuries, such as fractures or sprains, can cause acute pain and impaired function. Our team is equipped to provide comprehensive care, from accurate diagnosis to rehabilitation.

Hand and wrist pain can be caused by conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, arthritis, or overuse injuries. If you experience persistent pain, stiffness, or limitations in hand and wrist movement, particularly during daily activities, it's advisable to consider physiotherapy. Seeking early intervention can help identify the specific cause, alleviate pain, and improve hand and wrist function.

Physiotherapy for hand and wrist pain involves a comprehensive assessment to understand the factors contributing to your discomfort. Treatment may include exercises to strengthen hand and wrist muscles, stretches to improve flexibility, and manual therapy techniques to address soft tissue tightness. Additionally, your physiotherapist may provide ergonomic advice for activities that involve hand use. Each session is tailored to your needs, aiming to reduce pain and enhance overall hand and wrist health.

Physiotherapy is effective in treating a wide range of sports injuries, including sprains, strains, fractures, ligament injuries, and overuse injuries. Our experienced physiotherapists tailor treatment plans to address the specific nature and severity of the injury, helping athletes regain strength, mobility, and function.

Physiotherapy is not only for treating existing hand and wrist pain but also for preventing future issues. Physiotherapists can assess your hand mechanics, identify potential risk factors, and design preventive exercise programs to enhance strength, flexibility, and joint stability. Proactive physiotherapy can play a crucial role in preventing the onset of hand and wrist pain and maintaining overall hand health.
