Wrist Injuries

Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy's hand therapist Naomi White, recently attended a master class on the management of wrist injuries.

"Strong, pain free wrist function is essential for many tasks we do day to day, at work, home and during leisure activity. This complicated joint performs very precise movements to position and support our hand for fine tasks. As well as this role, the muscles of the wrist can make it rigid, and then transmit forces generated to the shoulder and elbow, for power tasks such as hammering" explained Naomi. "Wrist pain, weakness, stiffness and instability following injury or from arthritis can make even simple tasks like eating and dressing difficult".

"There has been extensive research into the complicated biomechanics of the wrist in recent years. This is improving our care of injured wrists significantly. The master class, conducted by Sarah Mee, a leading hand therapist from Britain, was a great oportunity to refine my work in this area" said Naomi. "It is gratifying to know that we can offer physiotherapy care for wrist injuries which is grounded on the best programmes in the world, even though we live in a remote, rural area".
