One diagnosis treated was a patient that slipped and had fallen with his arm reached out, breaking his radius. He was seen for six weeks following a cast removal. The patient had stiffness with wrist extension, difficulty weight bearing onto his wrist, and generalized weakness from underuse for the 6 weeks. This made life difficult for him by hindering his daily workouts with push ups and lifting groceries. After a few sessions the patient was able to increase his quality of life by tolerating weight bearing more and resistance.
Yes, it is. The wrist joint is made up of 2 long bones that make up your forearm called your radius and ulna. There are 8 smaller carpal bones in your wrist that form together in 2 rows to meet the metacarpals, which are the bones in the palm of your hand. Muscles in the wrist are primarily located in the forearm. There are several muscles that make up the flexors and the extensors. The extensors are primarily located on the back of the wrist to the elbow. Whereas the flexors are on the palmar side and make up the middle portion of the forearm. There are 2 categories of ligaments; the dorsal inter carpal ligaments and the palmar intercarpal ligaments. The dorsal carpal ligaments are on the back surface of the wrist connecting the carpals to one another and the carpals to the radius and ulna. The palmar inter carpal ligaments are on the front surface of the wrist and are thicker for better support connecting the carpals and the carpal bones to the radius and ulna too. There is an anterior band, known as the flexor retinaculum that travels across the palmar side that supports all of the carpal bones. This is important because this forms the carpal tunnel, through which the median nerve passes. If the nerve becomes inflamed, or any of the tendons through the tunnel, it can cause pressure on nerves and tendons causing carpal tunnel syndrome.

But how much experience do you have with these types of issues?
I’d like to let my reviews speak for me:
“ I was in a car accident in June and injured my dominant hand. I’d never needed physical therapy before and was really hesitant, because of the reputation it has for being so painful.
I’ve dealt with a lot of doctors since the accident, and of them all, Fusion has been the best. Their office makes me feel so comfortable. Ashley, Maritza, Micbeth, Sydney, and Jess contribute to an atmosphere that is professional, but encouraging and welcoming. It’s obvious that they work well together.
One of the things that I really haven’t experienced with other doctors is that Fusion listens and hears me, and takes everything I say into consideration. My preconceived notions about physical therapy are gone. I have a lot of faith in them, I am so reassured by their competency. It’s obvious that they care about their clients. and they take pride in what they do.
They are instrumental in my wellness journey, and I can’t thank them enough.”
