HAND INJURY OVERVIEW
We depend on our hands, wrists, and fingers daily to perform countless tasks. So when hand pain happens – through osteoarthritis, repetitive motions, injuries, or disease – we need relief.
If your hands feel stiff, weak, numb, or painful, we can help you find relief while restoring and preserving function.
Common Hand Conditions and Injuries
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes numbness, tingling, weakness, and other symptoms in the hand and arm because of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome begin gradually and can reach varying degrees of severity. In most patients, carpal tunnel syndrome worsens over time, so early diagnosis and treatment are important.
Hand and Finger Arthritis
Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis, is a degenerative condition commonly affecting the small joints of the fingers and the base of the thumb. Symptoms of arthritis include pain, swelling, and stiffness in the finger joints nearest the nail and the base of the thumb.
Fractures: Hand, Wrist, Fingers
Hand and wrist sprains, strains, and fractures are some of the most common types of injuries that occur. For any of these injuries, professional treatment will help to diagnose the issue and speed up the healing process.
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common peripheral nerve entrapment syndrome in the human body. It is the cause of considerable pain and disability for patients. Cubital tunnel syndrome remains an often misdiagnosed condition. When appropriately diagnosed, this condition may be treated by both conservative and operative means.
Arthroscopic surgery can be used to diagnose and treat a number of conditions of the wrist, including chronic wrist pain, wrist fractures, ganglion cysts, and ligament tears.
