Wrist and Hand Pain


Hand and wrist pain can encompass a group of conditions. Although it's more common for hand injures to come on gradually from overuse, it can be possible to develop acute, serious pain acutely with no apparent reason. People often say: 

"I can't pick up objects

"I can't push up on my wrists."

"My fingers feel really stiff in the morning." 

Common conditions that can manifest in the wrist and hand can include:​

  • Triangular fibrocartilage injury

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • CMC Osteoarthritis (Arthritis of the thumb)

  • Intercarpal ligament sprain 

  • Carpal Dislocation

  • Trigger Finger

  • Tendon Injuries

  • Intersection Syndrome 

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Commonly, structures in the wrist and hand can be overstressed from simple things like how you're loading them every day, a weakness of the hand as well as a change in loading of the upper limb which can come from older injuries and repetitive postures, Treatment you might expect can include:

  • Hands on treatment to reduce pain and improve movement in the area

  • A full body assessment to understand the root of your issue

  • A personalised strengthening program to stop the problem from returning

  • Discussion around lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the problem

  • Get you sleeping better and back to doing what you love without pain

  • Taping or supporting the injury.
