Breaks and Fractures
Hand and wrist breaks and fractures commonly occur following a fall onto an outstretched hand and require immediate medical attention.
Sprains and Strains
As the hand and wrist contain so many muscles and ligaments, strong bands of tissue that connect bones to one another, they are susceptible to sprains and strains.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain, numbness and a tingling sensation in the hand and fingers.
A form of tenosynovitis associated with sports and the intensive use of computer games consoles and smart phones, it can cause the finger to bend towards the palm of the hand.
Injuries to the tendons in the hand can cause severe functional loss if not treated properly. They are normally the result of a penetrating injury.
