Hand, Wrist & Elbow Pain
Osteopathy for Hand, Wrist & Elbow Pain
You may not think of your hands, wrists, and elbows as being tightly connected to the rest of your body, but they are. The bones, muscles, and joints in these areas are all interconnected. That’s why osteopathy can be such an effective treatment for pain in these areas.
Osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the manipulation of the musculoskeletal system. This includes the bones, muscles, and joints. Osteopaths use a variety of techniques to manipulate the body and relieve pain in these key areas.
One of the most common techniques used for hands, wrists and elbow pain is called soft tissue manipulation. This involves massaging the muscles and tissues around the affected area. This can help to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation. Another is joint mobilisation which involves gently moving the joints in these affected area. This can help to improve range of motion and reduce pain.
