Wrist problems, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Tenosynovitis
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common problem that we see outside of sports related injuries. It is often part of a wider work-related, posture-related problem. We assess the whole body, posture and mobility to try and establish key problems. Very often, postural correction and a stretching regime along with focal soft tissue work, will resolve the carpal tunnel problem without the need for a surgical referral.
We see alot of tenosynovitis in the wrist in sports people – particularly rowers. Again, we assess the whole upper limb to try and determine why the strain has manifest itself in the wrist area. Focal massage, joint mobilization, ultra sound and postural stretches are all part of the rehabilitation process.
