Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the many common hand and wrist conditions we treat. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) affects the wrist and hand when pressure builds up within the tunnel because of disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis), injury, fluid retention during pregnancy, overuse, or repetitive motions. You may experience tingling, numbness, or aching. A thorough examination is recommended to determine if surgery is necessary; otherwise, physical therapy can provide relief over time.
Hand & Wrist Fractures are very common and can encompass a range of injuries in which there is a break or crack in one or more of the bones. One of the most common is a distal radius fracture when people try to catch themselves during a fall or hard landing with an outstretched hand. Other common fractures include a scaphoid fracture (one of the eight bones in your wrist), metacarpal fracture, or phalangeal fracture (the small bones in your finger). It is important to see an orthopedic physician as soon as possible to treat broken bones. Otherwise, the bones may not heal in proper alignment which could affect your ability to do every day activities, such as buttoning a shirt or signing your name. Early treatment can also help minimize discomfort and stiffness.
