When was the last time you used your wrists? Was it when you wrote out a message for your loved one before you went to work this morning?

An Accurate Diagnosis
While pain that accompanies wrist movement is a tell-tale sign of arthritis, coming up with an effective treatment regimen requires understanding the underlying cause of your condition. Our physicians have experience treating:
- Osteoarthritis – When the protective tissue that caps the ends of your bones wears down, your joints can stiffen and grate together painfully.
- Rheumatoid arthritis – This inflammatory disorder causes your body’s immune system to attack the tissue surrounding the joints, causing pain and deformity.
- Post-traumatic arthritis – Caused by a traumatic joint injury, post traumatic arthritis can last for months or even years after the event that caused it.
In order to determine the best treatment for your arthritis, your physician will review your medical history and perform a physical examination. They’ll may also recommend lab tests and X-rays or MRIs from our onsite imaging center.
