Arm Injuries Q & A

What are some common arm injuries?

You use your arms every day in a variety of ways. If you fall on or overuse your arms, you may experience pain and limitations in your range of motion that reduce your quality of life.

At Hand and Microsurgery Associates, the dedicated team of specialists has extensive experience diagnosing and treating the root cause of arm dysfunction and chronic arm pain. They can address a wide variety of injuries and underlying medical issues that affect your arm health, including:

  • Fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Nerve damage
  • Limb detachment
  • Soft-tissue tears

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation with the Hand and Microsurgery Associates medical team if you have unexplained arm pain or suffer an arm injury from an accident or sports-related event.

How are arm injuries diagnosed?
During your diagnostic evaluation, your Hand and Microsurgery Associates provider spends time reviewing your symptoms, your medical history, and your usual activities. They physically examine your arm to identify areas of tenderness, swelling, and pain.

Using the latest diagnostic testing technologies, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-rays, your provider can identify fractures, soft-tissue and nerve damage, and other underlying issues. This information is essential to determine what treatment is right for you.

What treatments are available for arm injuries?
Initially, your Hand and Microsurgery Associates provider may recommend nonsurgical therapies to ease pain and restore arm function. If these therapies aren’t enough to improve your condition, you may be a candidate for surgery.

The surgical team can often use minimally invasive, arthroscopic surgical techniques to repair soft-tissue damage or fractures. Arthroscopic surgery requires only small incisions and limits trauma to surrounding structures. They also offer microvascular and microsurgical repair surgeries on-site to repair complex conditions like nerve or blood vessel damage in your arm.

At Hand and Microsurgery Associates, the team also performs specialized surgeries to reattach arms following an accidental amputation. If they aren’t able to reattach the limb, the surgeons can surgically prepare your arm for a prosthetic.
