Wrist pain

Enabling function and mobility
Wrist pain is usually due to overuse, soft tissue injury, inflammation of the tendon or fracture and can be a minor or it can be a very serious, depending upon which tissue or structures have been injured, and how badly.
A scaphoid fracture of the is the most commonly broken of the carpal bones, accounting for 80–90% of all such fractures. As a pivotal component of the wrist, it is essential that the fracture is identified and heals properly through the right treatment and for the right period of time.
Our physiotherapists will complete a comprehensive assessment to identify which tissues or structures appear to be injured and to rule out stress fractures or fractures. An accurate diagnosis is essential to guide treatment and to refer for imaging or specialist review if necessary.

Treatment options for wrist pain:

  • Joint mobilization
  • soft tissue therapy
  • splints or braces
  • taping
  • dry needling
  • exercise therapy.
Our physiotherapists can apply waterproof casts for fractures. Once the fracture is healed, we will guide you through the rehabilitation stage. This will include joint mobilisation and soft tissue therapy to regain movement, strength and stability of the wrist.
The timing of your return to work and sport will depend upon your injury, your recovery and the demands placed on your wrist from particular activities. The fitting of a brace may help with an earlier safe return to sport or work activities.
