Hand and Elbow
Hand, wrist and elbow injuries or pain are very common with recreational activities and can simply arise from normal daily activities and tasks. Injuries and pain can range from minor sprains or strains to severe injuries such as fractures, even repetitive tasks over time. Pain can arise from the ligaments, muscles, joints or even from joints unrelated to the area such as the shoulder or neck. Overuse injuries (Repetitive stress/strain syndrome) is very common amongst computer users, wait staff, grocers and hair stylists.
Physical therapy can be helpful in identifying the problem, modifying workstations and looking for other reasons that may be contributing to the dysfunction. This allows the therapist to treat the causes while decreasing pain and restoring your function.
Many times conservative care through physical therapy can prevent surgery especially for carpal tunnel syndrome.
