Have you got achey wrists? Are you worried about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Have you started getting pins and needles in your hand? Or is pain in the wrist waking you at night?
Wrist pain can stop you from playing sport or a musical instrument, it can stop you from working at a computer, it can stop all DIY jobs and even give you problems putting the dog lead onto the dog’s collar.
We know all about wrist problems; in fact, as manual therapists, our wrists are constantly under pressure when we work, so we are very familiar with treatments and rehab protocols for wrists.
As always the trick is to find what is causing the pain. Without that information you don’t know what to do to help it.
Rhodri says: “It can be difficult to work out which therapy or approach might help you when you’re in pain. So make use of our 20 minute free consultations. Book in for a chat with us and see if we can help. If we can’t, we’ll say so, and we’ll help you work out what to do next.
Our aims include keeping you well after you’ve left us!”
Rhodri (Registered Osteopath)
We understand hand, arm and shoulder pain because we see and treat it on a regular basis in the clinic. Treatment could have you returning to your normal daily activities, so don’t let the pain get you down!
Before treating you we’ll take a full medical case history. We’ll want to know about past injuries and illnesses, and about any medication you’re taking. We’ll examine the injury and look at how it’s effected by other areas of your body. We might also carry out orthopaedic, neurological or other medical tests. This is so we know it is safe and appropriate to treat you. If we think you need to be referred for scans or investigations, that’s what we’ll do.
Once we have made a diagnosis we will explain this to you and to talk you through the treatment options available to you. Our aim is always to find the underlying cause, so we can stop the pain, and also to help you find ways to prevent it coming back.
