Hand and Wrist

The right treatment starts with the right diagnosis

Hand and wrist pain can be caused by a number of conditions, or they may result from an injury. A physical exam, including medical history, discussion of symptoms and physical inspection, is often enough for our orthopedic specialists to make an accurate diagnosis. If further testing is needed, your doctor may recommend an X-ray, CT scan or MRI. Learn more about imaging.

Relief from hand and wrist pain

The orthopedic experts at Centura Health create a treatment plan based on your specific needs to provide pain relief and create maximum function for your hand and wrist. Our specialists offer a wide range of treatment options, including noninvasive methods such as splints, medications and steroid injections.

For some, physical therapy may also be a part of treatment. Your doctor may recommend changes to your physical environment when environmental stress may be contributing to your hand and wrist injury (such as installing a more ergonomic workstation at your job).

For injuries and conditions that can’t be solved with these noninvasive methods, our expert surgeons are able to offer the more advanced treatment you need. Whether your condition requires a more complicated surgery, such as hand reconstruction, or can be treated with minimally invasive surgery, like small joint arthroscopy, our surgeons can help you live a life free of hand and wrist pain.
