Our therapists understand how important fitness, sport and training is to many of our patients and are committed to achieving the right balance between maximising healing and minimising time patients have to spend away from their sport.
Painful conditions such as carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndrome are managed by our specialist team with the use of splints, exercise and targeted and practical advice. Our therapists work in conjunction with leading surgeons to manage post-surgical decompression and nerve repair.
At MHT we rely on evidence from the latest medical and scientific research to treat tendon pathology. This ensures that targeted exercise and treatment for tendinopathies and post-surgical tendon repair result in the best possible outcome.
Our therapists are trained in assessing, diagnosing and treating all wrist conditions with specialised knowledge in the complex integration between ligaments and bones and how they interact to produce wrist stability and mobility.
