Wrist pain and wrist injuries are often caused by sprains or fractures from sudden impact and accidents. But wrist pain can also result from long-term problems, such as repetitive Stress, Arthritis… Carpal tunnel syndrome. Because so many factors can lead to wrist pain, so diagnosing the exact cause can be difficult. But an accurate diagnosis is essential for proper treatment and healing of the wrist.
Wrist pain symptoms may vary depending on the cause… For example, osteoarthritis pain description is similar to a dull toothache. With Carpal tunnel syndrome it usually bring son pins and needles or tingling sensations both day and night. Keep in mind that the location of your wrist pain also provides clues to what’s behind your wrist pain symptoms.

With over the counter pain medications from your Chemist. If pain and swelling persists longer than a few days, see your doctor or phone Benjamin Setter.
Please note that a delay in diagnosis and treatment can lead to a longer time period with the injury. And poor healing resulting with a reduced range of motion, stability, and more pain.

Now, with the arrival of Bowen Therapy, there is another bowstring in the fight against wrist pain. From the moment of diagnosis, Bowen Therapy’s wrist procedure begins reducing pain and swelling of the wrist and hand. A Bowen Therapist can implement specific treatments and exercises for wrist injuries and tendon problems. If you need surgery, your Bowen Therapist can also help with rehabilitation after the operation. You may also benefit from having an ergonomic evaluation that addresses workplace issues that may be contributing to wrist pain.
Also take in to account that If you have a broken bone in your wrist, then a “cast” or splint can help hold the bone fragments together while they heal. Which takes real time! Please be aware if you have sprained or strained your wrist a “splint” is particularly useful with overuse injuries by repetitive motions.
Bowen Therapy is a set system of small moves, the technique is a gentle, fast and effective way to treat muscle and connective tissue disorders. The Bowen Therapy client can, within weeks, enjoy activity, if not sport without pain. In some Bowen Therapy clients, wrist pain symptoms have been known to cease altogether in three to six months instead of three years by conventional means.
