Professional Wrist Pain Treatment Around Northville

Proven Wrist Pain Treatment In Northville MI - Michigan Hand and Wrist - 493764049

Evaluation of a wrist pain should be performed by a hand surgeon. The work-up involves a detailed history and physical examination followed by x-rays. Additional work-up involving MRIs, nerve testing (EMG/nerve conduction velocity), and blood work may be necessary in certain cases.

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 Best Arthritis Treatment For You Throughout Michigan!

Evaluation by an orthopaedic surgeon is recommended to determine an exact diagnosis and treatment options. The evaluation involves a detailed history and clinical examination along with x-rays. Additional work-up involving blood work, CT scans and MRIs may be warranted in certain cases. A spectrum of treatment options exist for the treatment of arthritis. These options do vary depending if the cause is OA or RA. They include simple treatments like anti-inflammatories, splinting, or occupational therapy. Advanced arthritis may require more invasive treatments including steroid injections or a surgical procedure. 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 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 Around 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!

A tendon is what attaches a muscle to a bone. 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.
