WRIST/HAND

WITH A COMPLEX INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE STRUCTURES OF THE HAND AND WRIST, IT IS CRUCIAL TO IDENTIFY THE UNDERLYING CAUSE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN TREATMENT. 

The hand and wrist are used for almost all activities of daily living.  When pain and dysfunction occur, it can have a detrimental effect on even the most “simple” tasks.  Repetitive strain injuries due to the technological age we live in are common.  At OrthoRegen®, we comprehensively understand the functional issues that can occur with hand and wrist injuries.

 

   SYMPTOMS OF WRIST AND HAND PAIN

 

Depending on the underlying structures causing the pain and dysfunction, symptoms can vary and include

  • A dull ache or throbbing

  • Stiffness

  • Swelling and heat

  • Limited range of motion and inability to form a fist

  • Weakness, tingling and numbness

  • Weakness in grip strength

  • Pain while making a fist, grasping objects or turning the wrist
