Medical Care for Hand, Shoulder & Elbow Pains
The upper body contains the fingers,
hands, wrists, arms,
shoulders. Each of these components works in tandem to provide you with a full range
of motion. When one part starts experiencing problems, your entire lifestyle
can suffer. It suddenly becomes harder to drive, type, or even walk without
worrying about pain. This is not something you have to live with. At Baxter
Regional Medical Center, our orthopedic team can help you manage the pain
or relieve it entirely with safe, cutting-edge treatments.
The following are just a few of the upper body conditions we treat:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Torn ligaments
- Hand, arm, and shoulder injuries
- Rotor cuff tears
- Fractures and dislocations
- Joint replacement
Recovering from these pains often requires a coordinated rehabilitation
effort. At BRMC, you can find specialists in physical therapy, pain management,
surgery, integrative medicine and more that are ready and willing to help
you live an easier, more comfortable life.
Finding the Right Solution
Certain physicians turn to surgery immediately to resolve these problems,
but at BRMC we know that not every patient is comfortable with surgery
and it can take a toll on the body. We go through every possible option
alternative to surgery with our patients so that they may try less invasive
treatments like medication and splints before resorting to an operation.
We know your time and money is valuable, and we only recommend surgery
when our knowledgeable team determines it is the best course of action
for effective pain relief.
