What Conditions Do We Treat?
- UCL Tear is caused by a strain or tear in the ligament that supports the thumb joint, commonly known as Skier’s thumb. It often occurs due to a sudden hyperextension (backwards) force to the thumb.
- Mallet finger is the result of a rupture of the extensor tendon at the tip of the finger. It is usually caused by forced flexion of the tip or a laceration.
- Jersey Finger involves a high grade injury to the FDP tendon that bends the tip of the finger. It is commonly caused by a forced hyperextension of the tip joint when the fingers are actively gripping.
- Medial Epicondylitis or ‘golfer’s elbow’ is characterised by pain on the inside of the elbow. It results from over use of the muscles that bend the wrist.
