The upper limb (arm and forearm) is extremely important for our day to day function. Injuries to the upper limb can feel very debilitating when they impact on our daily activities, work, sleep or sporting recreational time. The elbow, wrist and hand are made up of a complex network of structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and bones) which can be injured through trauma or over-use.
Body and Mind Physiotherapists are experts in their assessments to differentiate and diagnose which structures are involved in an injury. Through these in-depth assessments, we can offer advice regarding likely timescales for rehabilitation and return to normal activities.
Elbow, Wrist and Hand trauma injuries are commonly seen following a fall. Body and Mind Physiotherapistswill work with clients following surgery to restore upper limb function, but will also address reasons behind a fall and put in place falls prevention strategies.
Elbow, Wrist and Hand pain can also be from over-use injuries such as sport e.g. tennis or golf, or also doing DIY at home. Body and Mind Physiotherapists will identify and rehabilitate the injury, but also strengthen the upper limb structures to prevent injury reoccurrence.
Should further medical investigations be required to help diagnose your problem, Body and Mind Physiotherapists are quick to communicate with local and specialist medical services.
