    Hands and Wrists

    The hands and wrists are composed of many small bones, muscles and joints that give us the mobility and dexterity we depend on for every day tasks. Therefore, frequency that we use these appendages leads to an increased likelihood of injury or disease. Conditions that affect the hands and wrists can range from trauma, sports injuries, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and bone diseases.

    • Swelling at the joints
    • Aching pain
    • Bruising or discoloration
    • Stiffness in fingers and wrist
    • Lack of mobility
    • Damage to nail beds
    • Cramping in tendons

    Treatment is determined based on the condition diagnosed by your doctor. Therefore, it can vary from heat therapy, pain relievers, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication to a range of surgeries.
