Common Conditions Treated In Kidbrooke

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: If you experience a tingling feeling or weakness in your hands and wrists, this might be due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This is caused by the nerves passing over the carpal tunnel becoming compressed.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This condition causes the fingers to bend upwards and cause discomfort. It occurs when scar-like tissue forms beneath the fingers and palm of the hand.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: Osteoarthritis can cause pain and discomfort when trying to complete simple day-to-day tasks. It is caused by the wear and tear of the cartilage in the joint.
  • Trigger finger: This condition occurs when the pulley at the base of the thumb becomes too thick and constricts around the tendon, so it does not move through the pulley freely and gets stuck.
  • Tendonitis: If you use your hands a lot your hands and wrists could become susceptible to tendonitis, where the tendons become inflamed and swollen.
  • RSI: These are common injuries in the hands and wrists that can cause pain and inconvenience, affecting everyday life.

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.
