Hand & Wrist Clinic

When your hand is injured the chances are you are limited in everything you want to do

Hands are special, we take them totally for granted as power tools, communication aids, work or hobby equipment and expect them to be there whenever we need them.

Hand therapists are physiotherapists or occupational therapists who specialise in the assessment and treatment of the hand and the upper limb. At Six Physio we have a specialist team of 3 physiotherapists Jennifer, Edwina & Davide working out of 3 Clinics, with appointments available Mon-Sat at Kensington.

Trauma

Our specialists can help with problems which arise through trauma to the hand such as fractures, ligament injuries, tendon or nerve injuries. These injuries would be managed alongside a hand surgeon (whom we know many and can assist with arranging this too if required), and can be treated conservatively or operatively depending on the severity.

We have the facilities to make custom-made splints that are fitted to your hand to optimise your comfort while you heal. This means that only the injured part of your hand is protected, and allows a bit of movement of the rest of your hand should this be allowed.

General aches and pains

The treatment and management of general aches and pains of the hand and wrist is another area we specialise in:

  • this could be overuse (“repetitive strain”), posture related – particularly at your workstation – or hypermobility to name a few.
  • feeling pins and needles and tingling into your fingers may be a nerve injury or irritation. These can be helped by physiotherapy for carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel and have a better effect if you start treatment early!
  • osteoarthritis in your hand joints is a common complaint, where splinting, specific exercises and activity modification advice can help prevent these symptoms getting worse.

How Physio can help

Having a thorough hand and wrist assessment with a specialist hand physiotherapist will enable them to create a tailored treatment plan for you: the aim to restore your function and minimise pain as quickly as possible, enabling you to get back to what you like to do!

At Six Physio we have a full gym set up so we can progress your rehabilitation to high levels if this is what you want to be able to do.

Post-Op

If you have surgery to your hand from trauma or from a chronic condition which you have chosen to have a surgical intervention for, we are able to manage all of the post operative care including wound management, suture removal and scar care at the same time as the therapeutic intervention.

If you would like to speak to any of the team directly then please call 020 7036 0286 or email and they will get back to you by return.
