Wrist and Hand Conditions

wrist conditionsStiff and Painful Wrist

This may be due to wear and tear at the wrist joint or due to a recent break that can cause the joint to stiffen up after being in cast. Hands on physiotherapy (manual therapy & Soft tissue techniques) can help reduce pain and free up the joint so that you get normal function back again.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This refers to pain experienced due to bones in the wrist affecting a nerve that passes through them. It can sometimes be treated using physiotherapy techniques but may require further investigations or referrals. Don’t worry because at Avondhu Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic we have worked diligently to establish a network of specialists and consultants to whom we can refer to.
