Hand Pain Physiotherapy: Grasp the Cause to Get Relief

The causes of hand pain are varied and can range from acute injuries to long-term conditions. The conditions we treat include Tennis Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Trigger Finger, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and fractures. The symptoms of these conditions can be quite diverse, from tingling and numbness to aching pain, and can severely impact daily life.

Untravelling Wrist Pain Physiotherapy

Our wrist plays a crucial role in performing daily tasks such as writing, typing, lifting objects, and so on. Hence, experiencing pain in the wrist can significantly affect one’s quality of life, limit productivity, and even restrict leisure activities.

Wrist pain physiotherapy focuses on relieving discomfort, reducing inflammation, and restoring function to the wrist following an injury, surgery, or due to chronic conditions such as arthritis.

Elbow Pain Physiotherapy

The elbow, a hinge joint connecting the upper and lower arm, plays a critical role in arm movements and in carrying out daily activities such as lifting, throwing, or even simple tasks like holding a cup of coffee. Thus, persistent elbow pain can significantly hamper daily life, causing difficulty in performing routine tasks, limiting participation in sports or hobbies, and may even disrupt sleep. 

Elbow pain physiotherapy, Tennis Elbow Physiotherapy is a therapeutic approach that addresses pain, inflammation, and reduced mobility in the elbow. This could be a result of acute injuries like fractures, sprains, or chronic conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow.

Understanding and Preventing Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Pain

Hand, wrist, and elbow pain can significantly hamper one’s daily activities, often leading to discomfort and distress. This pain can result from a variety of sources, including trauma, repetitive strain, health conditions like arthritis, or even unergonomic workstation setups. Identifying these causes is the first step toward effective treatment and prevention.


Traumatic injuries

Such as sprains, fractures, or dislocations can cause acute pain, swelling, and limited mobility. While accidents are sometimes unavoidable, protective gear and proper techniques during physical activities can help mitigate these risks.


Repetitive stress injuries

Like tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome, occur due to repeated motions over an extended period. Occupations involving repeated hand movements or hobbies like gardening or knitting can contribute to these conditions. Regular breaks, stretching exercises, and ergonomic improvements can help prevent these issues.


Health conditions

Like arthritis or tendonitis can lead to chronic hand, wrist, and elbow pain. While these conditions often require medical intervention, lifestyle modifications, including a healthy diet, regular exercise, and physiotherapy, can aid in managing the symptoms and slowing the progression of these conditions.


Improper ergonomics

Can lead to strain and overuse injuries, particularly for those who work on computers or engage in manual labour. Adopting an ergonomic setup, maintaining good posture, and taking regular breaks can help prevent this.

In all these cases, early intervention is crucial. If you experience persistent hand, wrist, or elbow pain, seeking physiotherapy can relieve and prevent further complications. At GP Pain & Physiotherapy Clinic, we offer a comprehensive range of services tailored to manage and prevent hand-related pain, empowering you to lead a pain-free life.

How We Can Help: Personalized Hand Pain Physiotherapy

We begin by conducting a thorough assessment to understand your condition, pain levels, and functional limitations. Based on your needs, we offer an array of techniques, including manual and manipulative therapy, where we use hands-on techniques to mobilize joints and stretch muscles, reducing pain and improving movement.

For chronic pain conditions like tennis elbow, our specialists employ techniques such as Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), where we target specific trigger points in muscles to reduce tension and stimulate healing. Anatomical acupuncture, an age-old practice, further assists in managing pain by rebalancing the body’s energy and enhancing natural healing processes.

Our treatments extend to sports-related hand injuries, where we utilize specialized treatment and taping techniques to support the healing process and prevent re-injury. We even incorporate custom foot orthotics into our treatment plans when poor posture or spinal misalignment contributes to hand pain.

Post-surgical rehabilitation is another key service we offer, providing a comprehensive strategy to restore hand function following surgery. This includes a blend of manual therapy, tailored exercises, and pain management techniques. Finally, our non-invasive treatments, like shockwave therapy and Class-IV laser therapy, stimulate the body’s healing response to chronic hand pain, reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair. At GP Pain & Physiotherapy Clinic, our goal is to provide relief and restore strength and dexterity to your hands, giving you back the freedom to live your life without pain. Contact us today.
