What are common hand, wrist, and elbow conditions?

There are a number of conditions that can affect the health and function of your hand, wrist, and elbow. When you have limited use of these structures or experience persistent pain, it can interfere with your ability to work and keep up with your responsibilities.

Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center offers comprehensive care for a variety of hand, wrist, and elbow conditions, including:

  • Arthritis

  • Trigger finger

  • Ganglion cysts

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

The physicians also offer care for overuse injuries that are common in your elbow, often known as golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow. These conditions describe persistent inflammation and pain that occur in your elbow joint from the repetitive movements certain sports require.

When should I seek treatment for hand, wrist, and elbow conditions?

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center if you have pain or swelling in your hand, wrist, or elbow that doesn’t go away with rest and home care.

It’s also important that you get a proper diagnosis for pain and swelling that continues to worsen even though you’re taking over-the-counter medications. Early diagnosis and medical intervention can prevent your condition from progressing.

The providers at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center offer on-site diagnostic technologies including X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) scans to get a closer look at the inner structures of your hand, wrist, or elbow to accurately diagnose the root cause of your symptoms.

What treatments are available for hand, wrist, and elbow conditions?

The physicians at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center create a personalized treatment plan that focuses on restoring full function in your hand, wrist, or elbow.

They offer a variety of conservative therapies to ease your pain and inflammation, including:

  • Bracing and splinting

  • Prescription medications

  • Injection therapies

  • Physical therapy

If these treatments aren’t enough to address your condition, you might be a candidate for surgery. The providers offer minimally invasive surgeries to repair fractures and soft-tissue tears, release tension in muscles that cause carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger, and treat deformities in your joints.

To enhance your recovery from an injury or surgery, Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center has on-site rehabilitation services. These therapies help rebuild muscle strength and restore function in your hand, wrist, or elbow. Rehab can also reduce your risk for additional injuries or a worsening of arthritis or other degenerative condition.
