Hand & Wrist Problems
There are not many areas of your body placed under the same daily level of stress and strain as our hands and wrists. In order to give us the range of flexibility and accuracy of movement that we need, our hands and wrists are made up of 27 delicate bones, supported by a network of muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments. With such a large volume of ‘moving parts’, it is little wonder that injuries and problems can be so common.
If you are experiencing pain in your hand or wrist, we are here to help you. We can offer comprehensive, expert orthopaedic treatment for all kinds of hand and wrist problems from sprain and strains, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, cartilage tears, fractures or repetitive strain injuries. Our highly trained orthopaedic specialists, hand and wrist surgeons and physiotherapists are renowned for their expertise in this area. Together, they are able to offer you peace of mind and support at every stage, from diagnosis and treatment through to postoperative care.
Our services available include the very latest diagnostic imaging technology for an effective diagnosis of your hand and wrist problem, including MRI scanning facilities, ultrasound or X-ray procedures.
Once a diagnosis has been made, our orthopaedic specialists will be able to suggest the next steps for your treatment. These could include non-invasive pain management using painkillers or anti-inflammatory medication, physiotherapy or, in more serious cases, surgery to treat conditions such as Dupuytren’s disease or those suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
We want you to get back to your best as soon as possible after the treatment which is why our team works closely with our equally specialist team of musculoskeletal physiotherapists.
At Parkside Hospital we can treat all manner of hand and wrist problems, beyond those that have been mentioned here. If there is something else that you wish to discuss with us, please give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you.
