Olympia’s Top Hand & Wrist Specialists
The wrist and hand allow you to perform numerous different tasks, but because they are constantly used, the wrist and hand are susceptible to pain and injury. The most common conditions include but are not limited to the following:
- Arthritis of the hand or wrist
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Ganglion cysts
- Nerve issues
- Strains and sprains
- Tendon injuries
- Trigger finger or thumb
Our specialists use a thorough evaluation and imaging and diagnostic studies to provide patients with accurate diagnoses. Customized treatment plans are created to help relieve symptoms and treat the condition that is causing them.
Common nonsurgical treatment options include the following:
- Immobilization (a cast, splint, or removable brace)
- Hand therapy
Our specialists may recommend surgery when symptoms do not respond to nonsurgical treatment options. Surgery may also be recommended when patients have (1) an injury that is caused by a serious accident (2) an advanced stage of chronic disease (i.e. osteoarthritis). The Wrist and Hand specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates perform both arthroscopic and traditional wrist and hand surgical procedures based on your specific condition.
