Elbow, Hand, Shoulder


Elbow


Elbow problems may show up as a tingling sensation or numbness that radiates all the way down your arm. Conditions like elbow fractures, elbow spurs, arthritis, and aging can create irritation inside the elbow joint, and the tendons or bursa (fluid-filled sac on the tip of the elbow) can become inflamed.


Injuries to your elbow can make it difficult to use your arm, which can affect your ability to work, drive, write, and perform normal daily activities. Evaluation by a qualified elbow specialist will diagnose the problem and get you on the road to recovery. Choose Abilene Sports Medicine & Orthopedics, where we have fellowship-trained elbow experts in Abilene, Texas.


Elbow Conditions and Treatments




Hand & Wrist


Injuries or onset of certain diseases can make routine actions we usually take for granted difficult to accomplish. Shaking a hand, waving to friends, grasping tools, typing a letter are just a few of these daily rituals. An injury or onset of disease that interferes with the many functions of our hands can change the way we live and work.


Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common reasons to see a hand surgeon. It causes pain, numbness, and tingling in your thumb and/or fingers, radiating pain in your arm, weakness in your thumb, difficulty grasping items, and pain when your elbow is bent.


If you have any of these symptoms for longer than a week or two, you should call Abilene Sports Medicine & Orthopedic.


Hand & Wrist Conditions and Treatments



Shoulder


Shoulder pain can affect your ability to use your arm, and the pain can make it difficult to sleep. If left untreated, the pain will get worse. You may notice muscle weakness, especially on the outside of your arm.


Shoulder injuries can happen suddenly while at work or during sports, but the shoulder can also suffer from normal wear and tear. The goal of treatment is to repair any internal damage, strengthen the muscles around the joint, and restore your range of motion and function.
