Understanding Hand Pain and Its Impact

The hand is a complex structure comprising numerous bones, joints, and soft tissues. When pain arises, it can be more than an inconvenience – it can be life-altering. Hand pain can stem from various conditions, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, fractures, or repetitive strain injuries. It may limit your ability to perform day-to-day activities, causing discomfort and decreasing your quality of life. Fortunately, our specialized hand pain physiotherapy in Edmonton is designed to tackle these challenges head-on, promoting recovery and preventing future issues.

Wrist Pain Physiotherapy at Vertex

Our wrists are complex and intricate structures that are susceptible to various conditions due to their constant use and mobility. Any pain in the wrist can be debilitating, impacting everything from your work to your hobbies. Some of the common conditions include

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Wrist tendonitis
  • Sprains.

These could be a result of repetitive strain, injuries, improper ergonomics or underlying health conditions such as arthritis.

After a comprehensive assessment of your condition, including understanding its impact on your daily life, the cause of the pain, and your overall well-being, and your overall health, we devise a personalized treatment plan. Our wrist pain physiotherapy in Edmonton incorporates,

  • Joint Mobilization: This technique involves gently moving the joint in specific directions to relieve stiffness and improve function.
  • Therapeutic Exercises: Customized exercises to strengthen the muscles that support the wrist, improve flexibility, and enhance range of motion.
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization: This technique targets the muscles and tendons in the wrist area to alleviate pain and reduce swelling.
  • Electrotherapy: Modalities such as TENS or ultrasound may be used to provide pain relief and promote tissue healing.

Our goal is to alleviate your pain and enhance your wrist’s functionality and prevent future occurrences.

Elbow Pain Physiotherapy: Effective Relief from Discomfort

Elbow pain can occur due to conditions such as

  • Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Golfer’s Elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • Olecranon Bursitis

These conditions can stem from overuse of the elbow joint, repetitive strain injuries, or trauma.

After a detailed assessment to understand the severity and the root cause of your pain, a treatment program that addresses your specific needs is created. Treatment may include

  • Manual Therapy: Soft tissue massage and joint mobilization techniques are employed to relieve pain and improve movement in the elbow.
  • Therapeutic Exercises: We guide patients through targeted exercises to increase the strength, flexibility, and stability of the elbow joint.
