Our hands and wrists are in constant motion and used while we reach, grasp, carry and release items daily. All this continued use and activity with our hands and wrists pose several dangers and concerns for over and improper-use injuries, including tendonitis and arthritis.
As much as we use our hands and wrists, it is not surprising that these are some of the most commonly injured body parts. Each year, more than five million people visit their doctor due to a hand or wrist injury. In fact, wrist fractures are the most common type of hand injury. Hand and wrist injuries may include swelling, pain, bruising, and difficulty in use.
Hand and wrist injuries may cause numbness and tingling in the fingers. The key to eliminating pain and discomfort in your hands or wrists is to have prompt, professional medical attention to determine the cause and the best course for treatment. TOC has an experienced team of physicians trained to diagnose hand and wrist conditions and determine appropriate treatments. Conditions may include tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, fractures, and arthritis.
