areas of your upper extremities makes normal activity difficult,
Orthopedic Services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center can help.
The complex design of bones, joint, muscles and nerves of the
upper extremity (hands, wrist, elbow and shoulder) give us a wide
range of movement, strength and coordination allowing us to
perform small, delicate tasks as well as strong, forceful labor.
Injuries and pain in the upper extremity can not only stop you
from working or participating in leisure activities, but can
also make the basic things we do each day like dressing, bathing,
preparing a meal or driving difficult if not impossible.
has upper extremity specialists that provide both surgical and
non-surgical options to treat hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder
conditions and injuries including:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Trigger fingers
