Professional Wrist Pain Treatment In Livonia
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. The pain could present after a traumatic injury, or gradually over time. Wrist pain can frequently be significant in nature and interfere with daily living. Common causes of wrist pain include fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve compression and sprains/ligament injury.
Every diagnosis is different, and your treatment plan will depend on your specific diagnosis. Some of the more common treatment options include anti-inflammatories, splits/casts, and occupational therapy. For cases that are more extensive or serious it may be required to use steroid injections or surgery.
The hand is an intricate region of bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Hand pain is a relatively common problem that can affect people of all ages. The pain could present itself after injury/fall, or slowly over time without an exact cause. Common causes of hand pain involve nerve compression (eg carpal tunnel syndrome), tendonitis, arthritis, or sprains/fractures after injury. The work-up for prolonged or excessive hand pain should be performed by a hand surgery specialist. The evaluation frequently involves a detailed history and clinical exam followed by hand x-rays.
The Leading Arthritis Treatment For You Throughout Michigan!
Arthritis is a very common ailment involving the joints of the body. Most people have heard of hip and knee joint arthritis, but a huge portion of the population has upper extremity arthritis. The arthritis can affect the shoulder, elbow, wrist and/or finger joints. 2 major forms of arthritis occur: Osteoarthritis and Inflammatory Arthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is much more common and involves gradual wear and tear of the joint. Inflammatory arthritis, like rheumatoid arthritis (RA), is much less common and caused by auto-immune/inflammatory involvement of the joint lining (synovial lining). Both forms of arthritis can interfere with daily activities. Patients present with pain, swelling, stiffness and overall decreased function as the arthritis becomes more severe. Many people are under the misconception that treatment options do not exist for hand arthritis. If you have been experiencing prolonged joint pain, or have been diagnosed with upper extremity arthritis, feel free to contact our office for an evaluation.
Ganglion Cyst Treatment Throughout Livonia With Our Professional Team
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).
If you've been diagnosed with a Ganglion Cyst, or you've noticed a lump in your hand or wrist, don't hesitate to contact us for an evaluation!
Looking for Tennis Elbow Treatment In The Livonia 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 other areas particularly around the hand and wrist, cortisone shots are highly curative with complete long term relief of symptoms with a single injection. More severe tendon irritation or partial or complete tears may require minimally invasive, arthroscopic or open surgical techniques to provide lasting relief.
