Common Conditions Treated In Eltham

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This common condition gives rise to symptoms of numbness and the feeling of pins and needles. The symptoms can be intermittent. It is caused by the pinching of the median nerve, which passes into the hand under a ligament.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: Osteoarthritis refers to the process of degradation of the cartilage lining of the joint. Symptoms include pain and sometimes stiffness and a reduction in grip strength.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This is a benign condition that mostly affects people of Scandinavian and North European descent. It is characterised by the thickening of the palmar fascia, the network of fibres that sits below the skin of the palm. It can lead to the inability to straighten the fingers.
  • Trigger finger: This condition affects the flexor mechanism in the fingers giving rise to a triggering of the affected finger or thumb. One or more fingers can get caught in a locked position.
  • Tendonitis: This occurs when the tendons become irritated, inflamed, or swollen.
  • RSI: This is a soft tissue injury characterised by inflammation of the ligaments, tendons, nerves, or muscles. The most common symptom is pain, which can be described as aching, burning, or shooting.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Trapeziometacarpal arthritis is a relatively common condition. It gives pain on key pinch and pin pinch.  Patients lose the first web space span (i.e cannot pull a large book from a shelf).  Early treatment consists of anti-inflammatories, injection and splintage.  The results of surgery are extremely good.
