Common Causes and Symptoms of Pain in the Hands, Wrists, and Elbows
We rely on our hands for nearly everything that we do. Whether you’re a professional tennis player, work at a computer, a factory, or at home – chances are you use your hands thousands of times per day to complete thousands of tasks and maneuvers. It isn’t until you experience pain or loss of motion until you realize how much you depend on your hands.
We work with patients who experience a number of reported symptoms including:
Sprained arm muscles
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Weakness, numbness, on tingling in the arms or hands
Intermittent pain that subsides then returns
Inflammation and swelling
Inability to grip and hold onto something
Pain or discomfort moving the hands or fingers
Muscle cramping or tension
Inability to move the elbow without pain
Every patient’s situation is unique; therefore our physician examines the patient closely to identify the underlying cause before determining an appropriate treatment plan.
A Spectrum of Medical Solutions for Treating Pain
MAPS is Chicago’s leader in conservative treatment for chronic and acute pain, including pain in the wrists, hands, and elbows. We provide a comprehensive, holistic plan that addresses your pain from many facets.
Some of our recommended treatments for pain include:
Many patients respond positively to our injection-based treatments which offer the benefit of rapid pain relief as well as the benefits of being non-surgical. Many of them also help to lubricate the intricate ligaments and tissues surrounding and within the joints. This may include:
Intra-articular Joint Injections
Cortisone (Steroidal) Injections
The team at MAPS offers an innovative injection therapy plan that contains growth elements that harness the body’s natural ability to heal. If appropriate, a physician may recommend this form of treatment depending on the nature and location of the injury.
Responsible Medication Management
While the opioid crisis has made a negative impact on reducing the pain of Americans, there is still a place for responsible medication management that is closely monitored and observed if it provides a benefit to our patients. Our physicians may recommend:.
Ethical Pain Medicine Management
Over-The-Counter Medications and Supplements
Getting out of pain means you can get back to a normal life more quickly. The physicians at MAPS work with some of the highest regarded physical therapists in the area and may recommend PT as a part of a comprehensive hand, wrist, or elbow pain treatment.
Bracing & Supports
Bracing and rehabilitative support can help provide better outcomes in many scenarios, particularly for the hand, wrist, or elbow, because repeated actions can lead to trauma and injury. Bracing allows for a patient to give the needed rest and support so they can get better, faster.
