Why Focus on Hand and Finger Issues?

Our hands play an integral role in our daily lives, and conditions affecting them can be particularly challenging. From carpal tunnel syndrome to De Quervain’s tenosynovitis and wrist tendinopathies, finding effective treatments can be a challenge.

Recently, Benoy Mathews, our head of education, led a training session at HCA Healthcare UK at The Shard London Bridge. Collaborating with Dominic and a dedicated team of hand therapists, we explored advanced conditions that have historically posed treatment challenges. The game-changing element? Storz focused shockwave therapy.

What makes this collaboration remarkable is that it may be the only hand therapy department in the country offering focused shockwave therapy tailored for hand pathologies. This presents new avenues of hope for patients grappling with complex hand and finger issues.


During our training session, we addressed a spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
  • Wrist Tendinopathies
  • Trigger Finger
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Thumb Osteoarthritis
  • Bone Stress Injuries (e.g., scaphoid fractures)
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture
  • Non-Unions Protocol
  • Avascular Necrosis (AVN)
  • Kienböck’s Disease
