Description

Dr Mark Howard offers a brief overview of hand and wrist injuries and an example workout routine for initial hand/wrist rehabilitation and conditioning.

There are four stages for successfully treating minor injuries (first aid, inflammation treatment, rehabilitation, strength conditioning). A doctor will classify a hand or wrist injury (e.g. acute, chronic, mild, moderate or severe) so that they can recommend the most appropriate initial treatment. However, injury recovery does not end with medical care.

It is important to follow up this treatment with rehab workout routines at home and strength conditioning with, for example, a personal trainer to restore muscle balance, strength, flexibility, balance and proprioception. This will significantly improve the chances of a full recovery and reduce the risk of re-injury. If you live in the Costa Blanca and have a hand or wrist injury problem contact me for a chat about how I can help you with rehabilitation and conditioning.
