The hands and wrists are intricately designed to allow for tremendous dexterity and movement, but they are also delicate. The tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves and other tissues can easily be injured, causing pain and loss of function. Hand injuries vary widely and often include soft tissue and nerve damage. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we offer pain treatment for hand injuries to alleviate discomfort and improve function at our clinic in Chicago.

Wrist and hand injuries can be caused by trauma in a fall, car accident or due to repetitive wear from work, sports or other activities. Both can cause damage to bones, tissues and nerves and require pain management, treatment and rehabilitation. Since the hands use many different components to work together in harmony, it is common for hand or wrist injuries to impact multiple types of tissue that can cause pain and limit function. Our double board certified physicians at CLEAR Wellness Group can diagnose the cause of hand injury pain and recommend the best treatment option.

Wrist and Hand Sprains or Strains

The hands and wrists contain many ligaments, muscles and tendons that can succumb to sprains and strains from trauma or repetitive use injuries. Sprains are tears or damage to ligaments in the dozens of hand/wrist joints, and strains include damaged tendons or muscles in the wrist/hand. Not only can ligament and tendon injuries limit function, but they also cause inflammation and nerve issues that result in hand injury pain.

To manage hand or wrist injury pain, it is vital to have a comprehensive diagnosis to determine the extent of the injury. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we can perform diagnosis and hand injury pain treatment at our medical clinic in Chicago. Contact us if you sustain a hand or wrist injury that is causing you pain or limiting your hand function.
