Think about how often you have to use your hands throughout the day. Healthy hands are so important. If you find yourself dealing with persistent hand and elbow pain you may be wondering what’s going on. Here at Loredo Hand Care Institute, Dr. Pedro Loredo and our medical team can do everything from repairing injuries to treating diseases, disorders and congenital conditions that are causing you pain.
Causes of Hand Pain
No matter how minor or complicated your hand injury or condition may be, the team at Loredo Hand Care Institute can provide you with the individualized and custom medical care needed to diagnose and treat your condition. The goal is to alleviate your symptoms while promoting a full and smooth recovery, whenever possible. Here are just some of the reasons you may be dealing with persistent hand pain,
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Trigger finger
- Tendonitis and other tendon conditions
- Fractures and dislocations
- Cysts and tumors
- Ulnar nerve compression (also known as Gunyon’s canal syndrome)
While some of these conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with simple nonsurgical treatment options including steroid injections, splitting and anti-inflammatory medications, other condition may require surgery. Dr. Pedro Loredo provides state-of-the-art technology combined with minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat everything from hand pain and swelling to numbness and tingling with minimal downtime.
Causes of Elbow Pain
If you are dealing with persistent elbow pain you may also have trouble performing even the simplest day-to-day tasks. Pain may result from overuse and repetitive movements (common in athletes), or elbow pain may be the result of,
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Radial tunnel syndrome
Again, many of these conditions can be managed by limiting movements that exacerbate symptoms; however, if you are dealing with pain, swelling, numbness or tingling, or weakness in the elbow it’s important that you see a medical professional to find out what’s causing your pain and how to best treat it.
