Injuries & Conditions We Treat


At our practice, we provide treatment solutions for injuries and conditions in the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. These symptoms can be caused by trauma, sports injuries, overuse, chronic inflammation, and even work related injuries. Some of these conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • Arthritis causes a breakdown in the cartilage that makes up your joints, causing the patient to feel pain, swelling and stiffness. Arthritis is caused by inflammatory arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis or general “wear and tear” osteoarthritis. We will work with you to find a solution based on the location of your arthritis, and its severity.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common causes of pain in the hand. It tends to be especially painful at night, and can leave you with numbness in the fingers in the morning and throughout the day. With accurate diagnosis and examination, we can provide many solutions to decrease the chronic pressure on your nerve.

  • Rotator Cuff
  • The rotator cuff is a common cause of pain in the shoulder. It is caused by damage to the tendons and muscles around the shoulder joint. The damage can build with time and inflammation or can be caused acutely through trauma. If damaged tissue is left untreated, you could experience pain and loss of mobility in your shoulder. We are happy to help guide you to the quickest recovery in function and to help decrease your pain.
