Wrist and Hand Injuries


The wrist and hand is a complex region of the body but is not as prone to injury as the shoulder, hip or knee. Injuries / conditions that occur in this part of the body can be acute, often from a fall on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) or overuse, from ongoing repetitive use of the wrist and hand. On occasion, pain in the wrist and hand can be due to causes higher up the limb, such as the shoulder and the neck.

At IONA Physiotherapy, you will receive a thorough musculoskeletal examination which should allow us to determine the actual source of the symptoms in your wrist and hand.

The most common wrist problems: wrist fractures, deQuervain’s tenosynovitis and carpal instabilities will be described in this section.
