Top conditions for the hand, wrist, elbow & shoulder
Trigger finger, known medically as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition that causes pain, locking, popping or clicking of the fingers or thumb when the hand is opened or closed. Muscles in your forearm attach to tendons that run all the way down to the bones at the ends of your fingers. These muscles are what help you bend your fingers into a fist.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common hand and wrist injury that is often caused by repetitive motion. Because symptoms tend to develop gradually, many people don’t recognize or treat the condition early on. But left untreated, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can become more extreme, disrupting your life and severely limiting day-to-day activities. That’s why understanding the symptoms and treating carpal tunnel syndrome is essential.
This is a painful condition that occurs when tendons become inflamed or irritated. Tendonitis in the elbow is usually the result of overuse, which overloads the tendons and they become damaged causing pain and tenderness around the elbow joint. Symptoms usually develop gradually and worsen over time especially during activities using the forearm. Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and pitcher’s elbow are all forms of tendonitis. Many cases of tendonitis respond to rest and nonoperative treatments such as icing, anti-inflammatory medication including cortisone injections, immobilization, and physical therapy. If left untreated, tendonitis can cause more serious problems that require surgery.
Rotator Cuff Injury
This injury causes shoulder pain whenever you move your arm, reach, or even sleep. The injury may be a partial tear or a complete tear of a tendon in the shoulder. The group of tendons and muscles that support the shoulder is called the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff injuries are one of the more common injuries to the shoulder.
