Hand & Wrist Pain

With so many bones, ligaments, tendons, and joints keeping hands and wrists working, there is ample opportunity for injury. In fact, injuries to the hand and wrist are some of the most common ailments facing both athletes and the general population (especially if their occupation involves repetitive strain). If managed properly, however, most can expect their injury to heal without any significant long-term disability. While hand and wrist injuries are very common, many people may never seek treatment until symptoms are significant. Delaying the diagnosis and treatment may result in long-term complications so try to get in to see a physiotherapist sooner rather than later if you have any wrist or hand problems.
