Hand Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy can help all types of hand rehabilitation. Patients recovering from hand injuries or hand surgery are traditionally sent to hand therapists, with whom we at Hip Sport Spine Physiotherapy work closely. Often, however, the hand, the arm it is attached to, and the nerves that run from the spinal cord down to the hand, require manual therapy. Mobilisation with appropriate progression of upper limb activity results in optimal rehabilitation.

Human hands

Don’t settle for a stiff wrist or hand after surgery or a fracture, or after any form of immobilisation. And don’t leave it too long – often the earlier the mobilisation commences the quicker the return to function. As always, the physiotherapists work closely with the orthopaedic or hand surgeon, and hand therapists to ensure the best outcome. Conditions such as Dupytrens contracture and carpal tunnel can both be helped either conservatively, or following surgery, by the right type of physiotherapy.
