Types of Hand and Wrist Injuries

  • Strains – injury of a muscle or tendon
  • Fractures – when your hand or wrist bone has a break in it
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – occurs as a result of recurring wrist movements, such as typing on a computer keyboard
  • Kienbock’s Wrist – an interruption of blood supply causes a fracture in the bone tissue
  • Arthritis – inflammation of the joints
  • Dislocations – a displacement of a bone from its normal position
  • Tendinitis – inflammation of one or more tendons.

One of the more common causes of wrist pain is carpal tunnel syndrome.  This condition affects millions of Americans by causing numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and wrist area.  It is typically caused by repetitive wrist motions.  The carpal ligament gets compressed and pinches the median nerve.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel:

  • Numbness in fingers or hands
  • Pain from your wrist to your arm
  • Weakness in hands

Wonderful Client Feedback

Great staff!  Love this place, would highly recommend. Had no issues after knee surgery!!

-Rod

Dr. Maurer’s honest approach to discussing options and talking TO me, not AT me, is a great comfort when making these big decisions.

-Lyle

Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.

-Patricia

Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!

-Todd

I’ve recuperated very well with physical therapy after having both knees replaced here. I’m on my way to walking normally again and without pain. They take time to listen and explain everything completely.

-April

This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!
