We provide hands-on care

Learn More About Your Hands

Your hand consists of three major parts: wrist (carpal bones), palm (metacarpal bones) and fingers (phalanges). 27 bones, 27 joints, 24 muscles and more than 100 ligaments and tendons make up this immensely delicate part of your body. These parts all work together to allow movement and dexterity for your hand. 

We treat common conditions such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome as well as sprains and fractures. No matter where you are in your healing journey, we ensure the care you receive is comprehensive, compassionate and geared towards you having healthy, pain-free hands. 

Services

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Your carpal tunnel actually looks like a very narrow corridor enclosed by bones and ligaments on open (palm) side of your hand. Repeated hand motions, especially involving your wrist, can add more stress to your carpal tunnel syndrome.

Fractures

A fracture is a broken bone. It is a condition that can happen to an individual after experiencing a traumatic, painful injury. When a bone is fractured, the shape of the bone is manipulated by the break. Fractures can happen straight across the bone affected or alongside the actual length of it.

Wrist Sprain

Unexpected injuries that result in sprains or fractures are usually the primary reason you may experience wrist pain. This condition can also be remnants of long-term health issues such as ongoing stress, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Hand Clinic

We provide specialized care for both non-surgical and post-surgical rehabilitation of both the wrist and hand. Arthritis, traumatic hand injuries, carpal tunnel and upper extremity dysfunction are some of the more common conditions we treat in our hand clinic.
