Hand & Wrist Conditions


The hand and wrist are the most active and intricate parts of the upper body. Because of this they are vulnerable to injury and do not respond well to trauma. The 28 bones, 39 muscles and numerous articulations provide a tremendous variability of movement.

In addition to being an expressive organ of communication, the hand has protective role and acts as both a motor and a sensory organ, providing information such as texture, thickness, temperature dept and shape as well as the motion of the object. When there is something wrong with them, you may not be able to do your regular activities. Hand injuries can result from excessive use, degenerative disorders or trauma.

The aim of physiotherapy is to give you the best opportunity to fully recover from your condition.
