Hand and Wrist Injuries
Hand and wrist injuries can often be debilitating. When we lose the normal function of our hands, fingers, or wrists, we lose the ability to perform routine, everyday tasks. Since we use our hands so often, it makes them prone to traumatic injuries such as dislocations and fractures. The repetitive motions while at work or participating in a favorite activity can lead to tendonitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome. These common overuse disorders can lead to chronic pain, if left untreated.
At Schneck Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our physicians are trained and experienced in hand and wrist injuries and disorders. They will provide solutions for your pain and debilitation, which can often times be effectively treated without surgery using splints, casts, cortisone injections, or physical therapy. With more severe injuries and disorders, surgery may be the best option to help relieve your pain and restore the function of your hands or wrists.
