Common Conditions Treated In Blackheath

  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This thickening of the fascia in the palm can extend into the finger, causing them to bend in towards the palm.
  • Tendonitis: When the tendons become inflamed this can cause pain, swelling, or loss of movement.
  • Trigger finger: This is caused by the tendons on the finger becoming caught or stuck in the bent position. Symptoms include pain and a popping sensation when using the affected finger or thumb.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: Arthritis in the base of the thumb or wrist can cause pain and inflammation. There are different types of arthritis.
  • RSI: This is a repetitive strain injury caused by repeated motion or activity, without breaks or rest, repetitive lifting, or poor posture. Symptoms include pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Carpal tunnel syndrome often co-exists with neck problems, diabetic neuropathy and even multiple sclerosis.  Once the diagnosis is confirmed, it is always a good policy to remove from the sum total of the picture the contribution coming from the carpal tunnel syndrome and then to deal with the more complicated issues (MS/neck problems) after that.
