Hand wrist and finger injuries are very common in sport and although the majority require minimal treatment, some are potentially serious and require immobilisation, precise splinting or surgery.
Many hand and finger injuries require specific rehabilitation and appropriate protection upon return to activity. Treatment and rehabilitation of hand injuries is complex and involves splinting, compression, specific strengthening exercises and taping.
Success of surgery depends a lot on what happens in the postoperative stages. It is important to maximise the surgery by doing exercises that help to stabilise, mobilise and protect the area. Your consultant may also recommend you have some sort of pre-operative intervention; we are ideally suited to do this.
Physio Team-Works will be able to guide you through these stages of rehabilitation. We can assist in monitoring your progress, setting your goals, and providing appropriate treatment to maximise your recovery potential.
We can also inform you of how you can help your own recovery, and what should be avoided. You will be provided a specific rehabilitation programme, and we aim to back to your full levels of activity and/or sport as quickly as possible.
