When the Upper Extremities Are Involved
At Parkridge East, we offer specialized care to help combat injuries and illnesses that negatively impact the upper extremities, which can include the shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists and hands.
Our team has expertise in caring for the full spectrum of such injuries, which may include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Joint dislocations
- Nerve injuries
- Tendon lacerations
- Trigger finger
- Frostbite injuries
- Rheumatoid arthritis
For any upper extremity injury, our orthopedic team will offer the full spectrum of treatment options, beginning with the more conservative options.
These non-surgical treatment modalities for orthopedic injuries include physical or occupational therapy, injections or nerve blocks, bracing, immobilization, modification of activities, and OTC or prescription medications.
However, if these treatment options do not provide relief, we also offer surgical options designed to get you back to living your best life. Among those treatment options is joint replacement, which can help restore natural movement in your joints and improve your quality of life.
