Abstract

The wrist is an extremely delicate structure that requires mobility and yet stability. Sometimes this balance goes wrong, and then osteopathic intervention is appropriate. Techniques can be general or specific, and although general techniques can often be effective in restoration of function, specific manipulative skill is sometimes essential. Some apparently pathological conditions can be influenced by osteopathic treatment such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and osteopathic management including direct work on the wrist and hand can be valuable.
