Elbow & Wrist Pain Physiotherapy РWhen it comes to pain and injuries, you can broadly categorise them into two kinds: acute and chronic, with physiotherapy handling more of the acute category.  Acute pain is sharp Рit typically comes on suddenly and caused by something specific like a recent injury or surgery. Chronic pain, however, can be described as a dull, constant, episodic or reoccurring sort of pain and usually lasts longer than six months, continuing even after the injury or illness that caused it has healed.

For acute elbow and wrist pain, depending on the severity of the injury (e.g. grade of tear or sprain) or inflammation, our physiotherapists will first seek to stabilise the area and reduce the immediate pain and swelling through different treatments such as stabilising methods, ultrasound therapy, electrotherapy and ice/heat application.

For stabler cases, they can also employ other methods like manual therapy, assisted stretches, soft tissue manipulation or even prescribe mobility exercises aimed at helping the injured area to heal more quickly. Our physiotherapists can also prescribe specific injury-related strengthening exercises to help further rehabilitate and stabilise the muscles around the injury site.

Chronic elbow pain, on the other hand, can commonly manifest as conditions such as: carpal tunnel, De Quervains, repetitive strain injuries (RSI), tennis & golfers elbow. Functional movements like gripping, grasping or lifting objects may become bothersome and difficult in such cases.

Based on your goals and our tailored holistic treatment plan, we will be able to address the underlying problems and place focus on pre-rehabilitative or rehabilitative treatments, on strengthening and mobilising the elbow and wrist, and ultimately on bringing you back to your full functional status.
