Hand and Upper Extremity

Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting or waving are all activities that we often take for granted. Each of these seemingly simple daily activities and many more are only possible because of the versatility and flexibility of the upper extremity. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder. Its intricate and mobile design coupled with the use and abuse sustained each day can make this region of the body highly susceptible to injury.

We apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from upper-extremity pain or discomfort. Physicians and other medical professionals treat a variety of conditions affecting the shoulder, arm and hand.

Evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of the hand requires a special skill set. Our team works together to ensure that the recovery process is as effective and efficient as possible.

Following are some of the areas in which we specialize:  

  • Soft tissue sprains, strains and contusions
  • Overuse and traumatic injuries to the upper extremity and hand
  • Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Impingement syndromes of the shoulder, elbow and wrist
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Instability of the shoulder
  • Fractures, dislocations and subluxations
