The functionality of your hand is important to everything you do in life. We know how this pain can affect your participation in daily living, and we are here to help get you back to your routine as quickly as possible.
Very often, we see patients with hand injuries as a result of overly strenuous activities or an accidental fall. Others come to us with symptoms such as numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand and fingers. In some cases, this is a result of carpal tunnel syndrome, which is common in people who perform repetitive motions of the hand and wrist. In other cases, these symptoms can simply be the result of the natural aging process.
After careful diagnosis and assessment, our hand and wrist specialist at The Central Orthopedic Group in Plainview, NY will recommend a treatment plan that is best suited for each patient’s needs.
