Fractures in forearm and wrist are common by falling injury, as we have a reflex action that when we fall our hand always go first to protect us from bigger injury. Commonly fractures occur in the bones of forearm that is radius and ulna, sometimes fractures occur in a small bone in wrist called scaphoid, which is attached to the radius bone.

Fractures can be managed by placing a plaster cast or in severe case by surgical procedures.

During the healing phase, when in plaster cast or after surgery, when in immobilisation, the elbow, wrist and fingers become very stiff. Range of motion and strength are decreased. Even shoulder also becomes stiff sometimes due to lack of movement during Immobilisation period.

So the rehabilitation procedure may include –

  • Mobility and flexibility of stiff joints and muscles by exercise.
  • Strengthening of weak muscles.
  • Educate the patient how to start normal activity of effected area after healing.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the pressure on median nerve between the carpal bones in wrist. Also called median nerve compression syndrome. Carpal tunnel is a narrow passage surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand.

Pressures on median nerve can build excessively due to following factors –

  • After a wrist fracture, dislocation or arthritic condition, the space within the carpal tunnel is reduced.
  • This tunnel is relatively small in females, so they are more prone to this compression.
  • Some inflammatory condition like Rheumatoid arthritis can cause this compression.
  • Obesity can also be a factor.
  • Some chronic illness such as diabetes can cause severe nerve damage including median nerve.
  • Repetitive wrist flexion and twisting movement in workplace also can cause this condition.

As median nerve provide sensation to the plamer side of the thumb and fingers, except little finger, and also responsible for the movement of muscles around the base of thumb, compression of this nerve causes tingling sensation of this area along with weakness of muscles which makes daily activities very difficult.

Sprains and strains occur in wrist and hand very easily as we do various kinds of movement in our daily life Using our wrist joint. sprains referrers to the injury of ligaments and strains refers to the injury of joints. These Occur due to quick overstretching of tissues causing micro tearing and subsequent injuries. Symptoms involves swelling, decreased range of motion, and pain. In severe cases, surgery may be indicated, when there is complete tear. But in partial tear, conservative treatment is the only option, where physiotherapy plays most vital role along with some anti-inflammatory medications.

How physiotherapy treatment helps-

the goal of physiotherapy is to restore normal function of hand and wrist by decreasing pain, swelling and increasing the mobility and flexibility.

Firstly, I evaluate the injured area and determine the exact location and extent of injury. Then guide the patient for healing quickly with rest, compression bandage, ice and elevation of the limb. Some physiotherapy modalities helps to heal quickly. After that some mobilisation technique and strengthening exercises will be given to the patient to restore their normal function.
