In many sports, the incidence of Hand-Wrist injuries are not the most prevalent areas in sport, however, provide significant reason for limiting both performance and training availability in many athletes.
In sports, there a variety of conditions which include; Sprain and Strains, Fractures and/or Dislocations, and Tendon Pathologies. The difference between subjective and objective information is important when assessing and treating these regions. This can make a difference on both safe and timely return to sport.
In this episode we will review which objective measures, and associated tools, are most indicative for these areas. We will also consider special tests which, combined with a good knowledge of biomechanics, can assist in both diagnosis and prognosis. We will then focus on exercise therapy through a variety of rehabilitation tools and concepts. Apart from demonstrating local exercises, we will ensure appropriate engagement of the wider kinetic chain is considered.
