Hand & Wrist
You may not realize it, but you use your hands and wrists a lot. They are in constant motion, reaching for, grasping, or carrying items of all shapes and sizes, both heavy and light. As a result of daily use, your hands and wrists are susceptible to a variety of injuries and conditions, such as sprains, fractures, and overuse injuries. Among the many conditions and injuries Dr. Kinchelow routinely treats are:
Common Hand and Wrist Conditions
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Nerve compression
- Fingertip injuries
- Nailbed injuries
- Fractures of the fingers, hand, and wrist
- Ligament sprain
- Muscle strain
- Joint injuries
- Trigger finger
- Tendonitis of the wrist
- Ganglion cysts
- Flexor and extensor tendon damage
- Nerve lacerations
Problems can also occur in the muscles and joints of your hands and wrists. Normal wear-and-tear can result in arthritis, while other problems can be the result of medical conditions such as diabetes or pregnancy.
