Hand Pain

Hand pain and injury is common and can be successfully diagnosed and treated by your physiotherapist.

Your hand is a complicated group of joints (wrist, hand, thumb and fingers), plus all of the tendons, muscles and nerves. Understanding of the hand is very important for the correct diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

For more specific advice about your hand pain or injury, please contact your physiotherapist.
