When Should You See a Hand and Wrist Doctor?

The hand and wrist are delicate, complex systems of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, vulnerable to many types of injuries and conditions. From the phalanx bones of the fingers to the median nerve in the wrist, this area of the body can sustain a variety of injuries that impair the ability to use your hand.

Bone fractures, tears, inflammation and dislocation are some of just a few of the ailments that affect the hand and wrist.
