Whether it’s arthritis, post-operative rehabilitation or an injury, our hand therapists can help. Restricted hand movement is so debilitating as we rely so much on them throughout day-to-day life. That’s why our physiotherapists are so passionate about helping you ease any pain and get back to doing what you love. Covering everything from the joints, bones and surrounding soft tissues, we identify the issue and design a bespoke plan to help your individual needs.
Some of the issues we can treat with hand therapy are:
Tendon disorders (de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, trigger finger)
Swellings (ganglion cysts)
Nerve disorders (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome)
Arthritis (terminal finger joint arthritis, basal thumb arthritis)
De Quervains Tenosynovitis
TFCC and Scapho-Lunate ligament injuries
Dupuytren's disease post op
Trigger fingers pre and post op
Volar plate injuries
Mallet finger injuries
We also make our own bespoke finger and hand splints in house, if required.
Sometimes it may be necessary to have a splint made for your arm or hand injury. Our hand therapist has over 15 years’ experience in assessing patients and making splints in the NHS and privately.
See below a list of everything we can provide tailor-made splints for.
Finger Splints, for example:
Volar plate injury
Central slip injuries
Thumb Splints, for example:
Basal thumb arthritis
Radial collateral ligament injuries
Ulna collateral ligament injuries
Hand Splints, for example:
Post Dupuytren's surgery
Elbow Splints, for example:
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
The price of the splints varies from £10 to £30 depending on what’s required.
As a non-surgical approach to hand rehabilitation, we use physical exercise methods to improve dexterity and ease pain. Using a combination of joint mobilisation, stretching and active exercises we design a plan that is unique to you. We take a holistic approach to hand therapy, starting by taking the time to get to know you, your symptoms and your relevant medical history.
With hand injuries and everyday aches and pains, we always advise to act quickly. Responding early to pain usually results in a faster recovery and working with our physiotherapists can get to the root of the issue before it develops into anything more severe.
Hand therapy has an essential role in recovery and rehabilitation from hand or wrist injuries. Our qualified therapists will help you with the restoration of hand function and not only treat the problem, but help to keep the injury from reoccurring.
