Our Services

We offer a wide range of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder treatments.

Hand: The hand is a complex combination of bones, ligaments, nerves, and tendons. We can help with a variety of issues, including arthritis, trigger finger, finger fractures, tendon disorders or injuries, hand nerve injuries, and wounds.

Wrist: Your wrists help you work, play, and do everyday activities. Arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures and compound fractures, ganglion cysts, scaphoid injuries, sprains, and tendonitis can interfere—and we can help.

Elbow: The elbow is a complex joint where several bones meet. We can help with dislocations, sprains, fractures, injuries due to chronic overuse, golfer’s elbow, nerve damage, soft tissue degeneration, tennis elbow, and other conditions. 

Shoulder: The most movable joint in the body, the shoulder is also one of the most unstable. We can help with a range of conditions, including arthritis, bursitis, dislocations, fractures, separations, sprains, strains, tendonitis, and torn rotator cuffs.
