Work Related Injuries

What Conditions Do We Treat?


  • Lateral Epicondylitis known commonly as ‘tennis elbow‘ is inflammation of the tendon that extends the wrist. It is common in any job that requires repetitive bending of the wrist in a backward direction such as typing. The aim of therapy for this condition is to reduce pain by supporting the wrist and increasing strength in the wrist.
  • de Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is inflammation of the tendon sheath in your wrist that causes burning pain with movement of the thumb and wrist.
  • Trigger Thumb or Finger is a thickening of a tendon that causes it to ‘catch’ when bending and straightening your thumb or finger. If caught early this can be treated simply with a small splint.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to increased swelling causing compression of a nerve in your wrist that results in numbness, pins and needles and hand weakness.
