Managing Osteoarthritis in the Upper Limbs

Are you suffering from hand and elbow pain? The Loredo Hand Care Institute in Grapevine, serving Dallas, TX can help. Dr. Pedro Loredo is experienced in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other forms of Osteoarthritis.

What is Osteoarthritis in the Upper Limbs?

This is a form of arthritis that is also referred to as “wear and tear” of the joints. It is a type of degenerative joint disease involving the cartilage that smoothly covers the surface of the bone. Osteoarthritis can cause severe hand and elbow pain. In Grapevine, Serving Dallas, TX, is the Loredo Hand Care Institute. Dr. Pedro Loredo understands how painful the results of wear and tear of these joints are. He knows how to handle and reduce the swelling, stiffness, and pain of Osteoarthritis.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Some of the most prevalent symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include: 

  • A feeling in the fingers, thumb, and palm that is tingling or numb. 
  • Weakness of the muscles, or an inability to grip effectively. 
  • The wrist, forearm, and hand may experience discomfort or pain. 
  • Elbow pain, or pain in the last two fingers--this may increase with inactivity. 
  • Tenderness of the elbow’s joint. 

How to Manage Osteoarthritis Pain

If you have hand and elbow pain, Dr. Loredo and his staff can help you manage it. We understand how painful Osteoarthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are. Therefore, we work hard to help find ways to alleviate it. 

The pain can be modified by wearing a splint or brace to limit certain movements of the hand and wrist. Patients may also participate in physical therapy and take pain medication to aid in managing the effects. 

If physical therapy, splints, and/or braces do not relieve the pain, then you might require another procedure. The symptoms may be eliminated because this procedure enlarges the ulnar or carpal tunnel.
