Treatment for Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Sports Injuries
Whether you play sports for fun, exercise, or you are an athlete with professional-level skills and goals, injuries of the upper extremities can impact your life more than you might expect. Fortunately, Hand Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Fiore II, MD specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries of the hand, wrist, an elbow.
The strength and dexterity of the hand and wrist depends greatly upon an intricate system of bones, joints, tendons, muscles, nerves, and vessels all working together. Sports require an array of movements that could injure one or more of these components. Crushing, bending, pulling, twisting, straining, or simple repetitive motions can cause both minor and major injuries, which can require treatments ranging from splinting and medication to invasive surgery.
Some common sports injuries include tendonitis, wrist fractures, hand fractures, finger jams, dislocated fingers, and ligament tears at the base of the thumb. These injuries can not only affect your game, but your ability to perform such simple tasks as making a fist, typing an email, fastening a button, holding a fork, or manipulating a key into a lock.
Properly diagnosing and treating these sports injuries could not only restore hand function more quickly, but it could also prevent long-term issues.
