Hand & Wrist Pain
Hand and wrist pain can be due to a number of different causes, but given how reliant we are on our hands to function, the impact can be more severe than the pain. You may not be able to get dressed, open jars/bottles, drive, play sports etc due to an injury to the hand or wrist.
Common causes of hand and wrist pain are:
1. Osteo or Rheumatoid arthritis
2. Tendon pain and/or inflammation
3. Sprains of joints/ligaments
4. Carpal tunnel syndrome
Arthritic pain in the hand or wrist does respond well to injections, either steroid or Ostenil. Injections are useful as well in the treatment of tendon pain, such as De Quervain's tenosynovitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Other hand/wrist conditions respond well to other physiotherapy techniques, and whilst injections can reduce the initial complaint, a course of physiotherapy is always recommended after an injection to complement the treatment.
