Hand & Elbow
When we lose the normal function of our hands and fingers, we lose the ability to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency in which we use our hands makes them prone to traumatic injuries such as dislocations and fractures. Meanwhile, repetitive motions while at work or participating in a favorite activity can lead to tendonitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome. These are common overuse disorders characterized by chronic pain.
Elbow injuries also can adversely affect your lifestyle. Tendonitis and tennis elbow are common problems that our physicians treat.
At Webster Orthopedics, our physicians are trained and experienced in treating hand and elbow injuries and disorders. Most problems can be effectively treated non-surgically with 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 function.
