Hand & Wrist

When you lose the normal function of your hands, fingers, or wrists, you lose the ability to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency with which we use our hands makes them prone to traumatic injuries, such as dislocations and fractures. Meanwhile, repetitive motions while at work or participating in a favorite activity can often lead to common overuse disorders characterized by chronic pain brought on by tendonitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
