Do you suffer with elbow, wrist or hand pain?
Why painkillers and visits to your GP are not the answer!
Elbow, wrist and hand pain can be caused by an accumulation of factors, many of which can have built up over time.
Hands are used constantly throughout the day, with typical activities including texting, typing, lifting, throwing and writing. Excessive and repetitive movement of any kind can build up to cause pain and even injury. Painkillers are generally not the answer, as they only mask the pain and do nothing to address the cause.
Does this sound familiar?
Perhaps you have been to your doctor, who prescribed painkillers and rest, which did little to solve the problem, but left you unable to comfortably perform basic everyday tasks.
Your elbows, wrists and hands contain complicated joints and it's not always possible to rest them, particularly on your dominant side.
It can be difficult to work out exactly why you are getting your pain, often leading to confusing and contradictory advice.
Because of this, people understandably start to accept the pain as being just a fact of life, something that they just have to live with.
You don't have to live with pain
If you are currently living with elbow, wrist or hand pain, then these are the 5 most common things we hear from patients like you in our clinics:
- I thought the pain would simply go away on its own after a period of rest, but it didn’t.
- I went to the doctors, thinking they would help, but was prescribed painkillers which did nothing to relieve the pain.
- Friends told me that everyone gets pains as they get older, it’s just something you have to live with.
- I’ve been to healthcare professionals in the past, but they weren’t able to help me.
- I’ve tried resting and applying ice, but the pain won’t go away.
We are here to help
At Recover Physio, we understand exactly what you are going through and we help many of our patients with elbow, wrist and hand conditions. Our therapists are trained to provide advice and treatment plans that promote recovery, while allowing you to continue with your usual activities as pain free as possible.
We can also help with the assessment, management and treatment of specific conditions such as carpal tunnel, De Quervains or repetitive strain injury. It may be that you can avoid surgery and that your condition can be treated with physiotherapy instead, something that we can assess when we see you.
We understand that you have options when it comes to who you see for your healthcare so we want to make certain that you feel completely comfortable with us and confident about how we will help you recover.
We always listen to feedback from our patients and they've told us that they really liked being able to speak to a therapist, for free, before their first appointment. It gave them the chance to ask questions about their problem and see if and how physiotherapy could benefit them. We always take the time to talk through your issues with you and to answer any questions you have.
If you're tired of living with pain or discomfort, then please get in touch with us. Our therapists are ready to work with you to fix your elbow, wrist or hand condition and to get you back to doing the things you enjoy.
