Sprained or Fractured Fingers

Finger Fractures are a common injury that can occur due to a direct hit or trauma. These injuries can cause intense and persistent pain which, if left untreated, can potentially lead to long-lasting damage.
Also known as sprained finger, finger fractures treatment will depend on the location and type of fracture or sprain sustained.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Scapholunate Ligament Injury

This is a common wrist injury caused by forceful or repetitive backward wrist movements. It can occur from falls, gym accidents, or certain yoga poses. This ligament connects two small bones in the hand and can tear or strain due to abnormal flexing or extension.

Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear can vary depending on the type and extent of the injury. Pain is generally in the front or side of the shoulder and can radiate down the arm or into the neck.

Shoulder Bursitis

Bursitis (meaning inflammation of the bursa) is characterised by swelling, thickening and of course inflammation of the bursa. In the shoulder this is often caused by a sudden increase in overhead workload, long-term repetitive overhead work, or infection.
