Hand and Wrist

Clearwater Hand & Wrist Pain Treatment

Are You Having Difficulty Using Your Hand?

Wrist pain is often caused by sprains or fractures from sudden injuries. It can also result from long-term problems, such as repetitive stress, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Wrist pain can manifest in the wrist itself, hands, fingers, and forearm. Many different factors can lead to wrist pain, so an accurate diagnosis is essential for proper treatment.

Common causes of hand and wrist pain include:

  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Tendonitis, tenosynovitis and bursitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Ganglions
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Osteo-arthritis
  • Inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis

At Comprehensive Spine Institute, we have a skilled team of orthopedists who are experienced in treating conditions of the hand and wrist. Before starting treatment, we perform a comprehensive assessment that may include x-rays, MRIs, ultrasound, or arthroscopy to find the source of the pain. If you have already received an MRI at another facility, we can provide a no-charge MRI consultation.

We know how hand and wrist pain can impact your day-to-day life. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with a seasoned orthopedist. You can also call us at (727) 300-2537.

Treatment for Hand & Wrist Pain

According to the diagnosis, your pain may be treated conservatively with physical therapy, splinting, casting, shots, or medication.

If these conservative treatments fail to produce results, surgical treatment may be necessary. Surgery could involve arthroscopes and minimally invasive surgery to repair fractures and tissue damage.

Many wrist injuries are sports related and our surgeons are certified in sports orthopaedics and provide extensive acute care management and rehabilitation for hand and wrist injuries. We strive to return every patient back to normal activity as quickly as possible so they can resume their normal lives. This goes beyond just treating the injury – we also provide patients with education and techniques to prevent recurring problems.
