Hand and Wrist Pain, Injury, and Surgery

Hand and wrist injuries can often be the most debilitating. When we lose the normal function of our hands, fingers, or wrists, 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.

At Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron, our physicians who are trained and experienced in hand and wrist injuries and disorders can provide solutions for your pain and debilitation. Most problems can be effectively treated nonsurgically with splints, casts, cortisone injections, or physical therapy. With more severe injuries and disorders, surgery (including joint replacement surgery) may be the best option to help relieve your pain and restore the function of your hands or wrists.
