Management of Complex Wrist Injuries
Wrist injuries are often complex, involving joint stiffness or ligament injury leading to instability. Successful treatment of these functionally limiting problems requires indepth knowledge of wrist biomechenics and excercise prescription specific to the problem. This is not usually met adequately in a general rehabilitation context. A Hand therapists expertise is often required for successful outcomes.
Wrist rehabilitation group
This is a functionally based gym program for those needing to improve upper limb stability and strength following wrist injury or surgery led by one of our hand therapists.
Dynamic Thumb stability group
Thumb instabilities (‘wonky’ thumbs) can cause weakness, pain with pinch grip and can lead to arthritis. This group teaches a series of stabilising exercises to strengthen the supporting muscles around the thumb. This can be very helpful for those with arthritis as well as those who are hypermobile.
