Hand / Arm / Shoulder Care
Reaching, grabbing, writing, lifting or waving are all simple actions that we take for granted. If you suffer from pain in your hand, wrist or elbow, the simplest task can feel like a burden.
Some problems that can cause pain in the arm, hand and shoulder are:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sprains, strains, and bruises
- Overuse and injury
- Torn rotator cuff
- Unstable or loose joint
- Broken bones, dislocations or misalignments
- Trigger finger
There are options to control your pain and help you regain your skills. Treatments may include medicine, physical therapy, application of a splint, cast or brace, "buddy taping" to help support a joint or surgery. Subspecialty hand-trained orthopedic surgeons help make the Bone & Joint Center a regional referral destination for the care of hand, arm and shoulder conditions. The latest technology is used to assess, diagnose and treat problems. Personalized plans are developed to help you with your problems and pain.
Some of the procedures that can be performed are:
- Shoulder replacement surgeries
- Carpal tunnel release
- Trigger finger release
- Rotator cuff repair surgery
- Internal and external fixations (to stabilize fractures)
- Vascular surgeries
- Nerve and tendon surgeries
- Replacement of finger joints with prosthetic or man-made implants
When a surgical procedure is needed, our staff helps you understand what procedure will be performed and why it needs to be done. Our physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing staff help you through your recovery. Our social worker and case manager help you determine the appropriate placement after surgery, whether it be home with outpatient therapy or subacute care at a long-term-care facility for further therapy.
Whatever your needs, our staff at the Bone & Joint Center and St. Cloud Orthopedics are happy to assist you.
