Take your understanding of the wrist and hand with Ian Gatt, a sport physio with extensive experience treating upper extremity pathologies amongst Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
Approximately 25% of all sports-related injuries involved the hand or wristm with so many bones, ligaments, tendons and joints this is no surprise. If managed properly most athletes return back to peak performance without any long-term diability or impaired performance.
