Hand And Wrist Injuries

Our Osteopaths are highly trained in treating patients with hand and wrist injuries. During treatment, we focus on treating the root cause of your pain. Therefore, we will rarely only concentrate on your hand and wrist; we will examine your entire spine, including the neck, upper back, and shoulder, where we may often find additional structures contributing to your injury. Along with osteopathic treatment, we also address other predisposing factors, such as posture, poor ergonomic set-ups at the desk, and muscle imbalances.

Osteopathy For Hand and Wrist Pain

Once we have diagnosed that your pain comes from various structures in your hand and wrist; we will compile a comprehensive treatment plan tailored specifically to each patient. Treatment plans centre around osteopathic treatment using highly skilled techniques to ease your elbow pain, restore movement and relieve aches and pains. We also focus on more long-term rehabilitation techniques to improve mobility and strength to return the patient to everyday activities.
