Physiotherapy for Wrist Pain
The wrist is made up of a complex set of joints with 15 bones and a number of ligaments and muscles working together to provide a large range and skilful control of movement at the hand and fingers. The wrist is susceptible to injury from trauma (such as a fall) and overuse injuries. Physiotherapy will work towards restoring normal movement, strength and function to the wrist. Some of the more common causes of wrist injuries we see at Leeds Physiotherapy include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- De Quervains Tenosynovitis

- Scapholunate Dissociation
- Triangular fibrocatilage complex tear
