wrist & hand pain treatments

Possible physiotherapy diagnosis of your wrist and hand pain and relevant treatments:

This type of injury is often caused when landing from a fall on your outstretched hand, either during a sporting activity or simply an accidental fall.  However it could also be related to a trapped nerve, such as the commonly known Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Due to the complicated nature of the joints, tendons, muscles and nerves in the hand & wrist the cause of pain could be related to numerous issues and it is possible that the pain is being deferred.

It is imperative that you receive a professional diagnosis for your wrist and hand pain in order to alleviate the pain.
