Expert care for hand & wrist problems
You may find yourself unable to take part in your favourite sport. Perhaps you’re finding it increasingly difficult to grip and hold things securely and without pain. Even the simplest of tasks can become a challenge.
If you’re struggling with pain, stiffness, weakness or numbness in your hands or wrists, it can be a relief to know that good treatments are available for a wide range of conditions. Here at BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital, we can provide you with rapid access to an experienced Consultant Hand & Wrist Surgeon for thorough assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
Given the complex structure of the hands and wrists, it’s not surprising that they are susceptible to a range of problems.
Whatever problem you’re experiencing in your hand or wrist, our experienced Hand and Wrist Consultants can help get you out of pain and back to using your hand and wrist free of pain or stiffness. Your consultation can be done at a time convenient to you over secure video, on the telephone or in person at the hospital.
Once they’ve talked with you, they will carry out a physical examination of your hand and wrist, moving it into various positions and asking you to perform some simple movements. This helps assess the extent of the problem and shows them what movements and actions are causing you pain or a worsening of symptoms.
Additional tests may be needed to aid with diagnosis. This will often be an X-ray of your hand and wrist, which can help to confirm or exclude any abnormality in the bones themselves. Additional scans like MRI and ultrasound can sometimes be helpful to assess problems with tendons, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Any of these can be easily arranged for you here on-site should you require them.
The medical history, physical assessment and the results of any diagnostic tests are all used by your Consultant to make a diagnosis. Once they know the exact cause of your symptoms, diagnosis they will discuss any suitable treatment options with you.
Many hand and wrist problems will resolve naturally over time or can be managed well using non-surgical (conservative) treatments. If surgery is required, your Consultant will explain how the operation will be done, the benefits you should expect to see as a result of the surgery, and any potential risks you ned to be aware of.
One of the most important factors in ensuring optimal recovery from any hand and wrist condition is having access to expert support throughout. Here at BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital our experienced Physiotherapists will work closely with you as you recover, helping you to regain function and movement in your hand and wrist. They will structure a personalised rehabilitation programme just for you, to help improve your strength, range of movement and flexibility, safely and at the right pace for you.
