Did you know that your hand has 34 muscles in it? It also has 27 bones and 27 joints and over 100 ligaments and tendons. That’s a lot of moving parts in a not-so-big, but extremely important body part! Every time you sit down to work at a computer, cook dinner for your family, or go shopping at the Torrington Main Street Market, you use your hands.
You use your hands so much that it’s easy to take them for granted. But when you start to suffer from hand pain, you realize very quickly how much you use your hands every day. Don’t let that hand pain slow you down. Let the board-certified and -fellowship-trained hand specialists at Premier Bone & Joint Centers help you.
Hand Injuries We Treat
With all of those bones, joints, ligaments and tendons in your hand, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Sports injuries are very common, and we are proud to be the team physicians for the University of Wyoming athletics, you may develop hand pain that is unrelated to an injury. Rest assured, our hand doctors have experience treating a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
The first thing our doctors will do when you visit is to review your medical history. After that, we’ll conduct a physical examination. They may order X-rays or an MRI if a closer examination of your condition is needed. Once we can determine the source of your hand pain, we’ll create a treatment plan.
Experienced Hand Specialists Focused On Long-Term Recovery
At Premier Bone & Joint Centers, we always look to non-invasive treatment options first. Approaches like immobilization, physical therapy, and pain management can prove very effective in many cases. However, if a surgical procedure is necessary, our hand surgery specialists can handle your surgery using the latest techniques and equipment to be as minimally invasive as possible.
Your hands are too important. Don’t suffer through hand pain; treat it! Call or visit the hand physicians at Premier Bone & Joint Centers at our Torrington, WY, satellite clinic today.
