What we treat

We assess and manage a wide range of injuries and conditions for both adults and children. This includes most kinds of hand or arm problems, as well as injuries caused at work, sports or home.

Some examples are:

■ broken bones (also known as fractures)

■ dislocations: where your bone or joint has had to be put back in place

■ crush injuries, cuts & amputations…. finger tips often get these injuries

■ strains & sprains such as wrist sprain, skier’s thumb and tennis elbow

■ tendon and nerve injuries including those which have been repaired

■ arthritis: degenerative (osteoarthritis), often in the thumb and rheumatoid arthritis

■ nerve compressions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

■ after an operation on your arm

■ over use problems, also known as RSI (repetitive strain injury) or OOS (occupational overuse syndrome)

■ painful hand & forearm conditions, sometimes called CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome)
