Hand and Wrist

Treatment for hand and wrist cramps and injuries

Your hands, wrists and fingers are essential tools that allow you to work, play and perform everyday activities. In fact, how well the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders interact depends upon the integrity and function of the related ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints and bones. Problems in any of these can affect upper extremity function — from the fingertips to the shoulder blades — causing major disruptions to your quality of life.
