How many times a day would you estimate that you utilize your hands and wrists to perform a necessary function in your life? Whether opening a door, driving your car, zipping up a jacket, or feeding yourself a tasty snack, our hands and wrists are vital components of our everyday tasks. If you have been suffering from a hand or wrist condition, we encourage you to learn more about your local hand surgery in Rockwall.
Common Hand & Wrist Ailments
The most common hand and wrist ailments are sprains, strains, and fractures. These problems often stem from an accidental injury such as playing sports or falling, and you will likely experience pain, swelling, and lack of mobility.
Another common wrist concern is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by repetitive strain, frequently induced by jobs or hobbies that require you to make the same set of movements many times throughout the day.
How to Treat Hand & Wrist Injuries
The first step in treating hand and wrist injuries is getting an experienced physician’s proper diagnosis. With an examination, your doctor will pinpoint the cause of your pain and the severity. Depending on the symptoms, your doctor may perform a simple physical assessment, or they may need to take further action with X-rays, MRIs, or blood tests. From there, you will have several treatment options depending on your unique case.
Depending on the type and severity of your condition, several non-surgery options may be available to you. Such treatments include splinting, medication, cortisone injections, physical therapy, or a combination.
