Common Conditions Treated In Mottingham

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway in your wrist through which nerves pass. When the main nerve becomes compressed, this causes tingling, numbness, and other symptoms.
  • Tendonitis: This condition is inflammation of the tendons in the hands or wrist that results in pain and swelling.
  • Trigger finger: Also known as Stenosing Tenosynovitis, this condition causes a finger or thumb to get stuck in a bent position. It is caused by inflammation, which narrows the space in the sheath that surrounds the tendon.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: Arthritis can affect the wrists and hands, particularly at the base of the thumb and the wrist. It develops when the cartilage that covers the joint starts to wear away.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This condition in the hand where the tissue under the skin in the palm and base of the fingers starts thickening. As the skin thickens and contracts, the fingers curl inwards.
  • RSI: Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is used to describe a range of conditions of the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. RSI is common in the wrists and hands, often caused by repetitive movements of working on computers.
