The wrist is a complicated region of bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Wrist pain is a very common ailment affecting both the pediatric and adult population.

Ganglion Cysts are very common lumps that occur on hands and wrists that arise from joints or tendons. The common locations include the top and palm side of the wrist, palm side of fingers, and near the finger nail. A Ganglion Cyst is a sac filled with clear fluid or gel. These masses are no cancerous and do not spread. They may change in size and even disappear on their own. Some Ganglion Cysts are painful due to pressure on surrounding structures (tendons, nerve or blood vessels).

Looking for Tennis Elbow Treatment In The Northville Area?

Tennis elbow is due to the degeneration, inflammation or partial tearing of the common extensor tendon of the wrist and fingers where they originate from the outside bony prominence of the elbow known as the lateral epicondyle. Less than 10% of people who have experienced this pain have ever picked up a tennis racket. Evaluation begins with physical examination and x-rays from three different views. This is often all that is needed to diagnose your elbow pain. On occasion an MRI or ultrasound may be needed to further evaluate the tendons and ligaments of the elbow. Treatment may consist of oral medications', exercise at home or with a therapist, bracing, injections and on occasion, surgery if required. A number of minimally invasive techniques are available for the treatment of tendon injuries if required including percutaneous tendon debridement or injection of platelet rich plasma.

We Also Offer General Tendonitis Treatment!

Tendonitis is the inflammation, degeneration or irritation of a tendon. Tendons may be irritated from degeneration, overuse, or where they run under a bone or through a fibrous tunnel. Tendonitis can cause pain, limited range of motion, sleep disturbance, as well as clicking and locking of joints. Treatment of tendonitis may include oral medications, rest, bracing, or exercise depending on the tendon irritated and the cause of this irritation. In some areas cortisone injections greatly decrease pain which allow one to exercise more and rid oneself of the pain of tendonitis. More severe tendon irritation or partial or complete tears may require minimally invasive, arthroscopic or open surgical techniques to provide lasting relief.
