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:
- 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?
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?
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.
