ELBOW AND WRIST
Elbow and Wrist
Elbow and Wrist pains are very commonly seen by our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. In our modern society with high levels of computer and phone use, elbow, wrist and forearm injuries are increasing in frequency. The hand is made up of many small bones that join with the two forearm bones (radius and ulnar), which then joint with the arm bone (humerus) to form the Elbow. The forearm consists of an even larger number of muscles that control part of the elbow, hand, fingers, thumb and wrist. These muscles and their tendon attachments to the bones can become tired and sore with extended periods of computer and phone use, as well as being commonly injured in sports like tennis, badminton, golf and table tennis.
Untreated hand, wrist and elbow conditions can become chronic and affect the upper arm, shoulder and neck, even causing headaches.
