Your hand and wrist is a very complex area with the wrist alone being made up of eight small bones arranged in two rows articulating with each other and articulating with the two long bones of your forearm. As well as these joint articulations there is a network of ligaments and joint capsules connecting the bones to each other, tendons and nerves passing either side of the wrist and muscles in the hand itself. Strain or damage to any of these tissues can potentially cause pain and affect your ability to use your wrist or hand.
Below is a short list of some of the most common injuries that we treat in our Nanaimo physiotherapy clinic:
Sprains and fractures
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
Carpal tunnel syndrome
As a result of there being multiple structures responsible for causing hand and wrist pain accurate diagnosis is crucial, Brickyard Physiotherapy practitioners are highly trained in the assessment and management of hand and wrist pain.
