Whether you are an office worker or a professional sportsperson, few areas of our body are placed under the same level of stress and strain as our hands and wrists.
To help give us such an incredible range of precision and motion, there are 27 bones in your hand, including the eight bones that make up the wrist. These are controlled by more than 30 muscles in the hand and forearm, as well as a network of tendons, nerves and ligaments. With so many ‘moving parts’, it is no surprise that injuries and problems can occur so frequently.
If you are experiencing pain from your hand or wrist, we can help with an extensive range of specialist orthopaedic treatments for all kinds of hand and wrist problems. This can include wrist ganglions (cysts), trauma injuries, nerve injuries, bone fractures and arthritic conditions. Our highly trained orthopaedic specialists, orthopaedic nurses and hand and wrist surgeons are renowned experts in their profession. They will be able to offer you the peace of mind you require throughout your diagnosis, treatment and aftercare.
Our services also include imaging and screening technologies to ensure a fast and accurate diagnosis of your problem and may include X-rays or the latest MRI and ultrasound scanning facilities. Once a diagnosis has been made, our specialists will be able to help you carefully consider your next steps.
Treatments for hand and wrist problems can range from a conservative approach to pain management, such as medication or physiotherapy. They could also require corrective surgery. We have helped treat people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s disease, osteoarthritis, tendonitis and more.
After your operation, our musculoskeletal physiotherapists will be on hand to help you rehabilitate and regain mobility as quickly as possible.
At The Chelmsford we can treat all kinds of hand and wrist problems, including others that have not been mentioned here. If you are unable to find what you are looking for here, please get in touch so we can discuss your individual needs. We look forward to hearing from you.
