Wrist Anatomy & Wrist Health

The wrist consists of dozens of bones and joints, as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage that all work together to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency with which we use our wrists makes them prone to injuries, dislocations, and fractures. Repetitive motions while at work or participating in activities can lead to wrist pain, tendinitis of the wrist, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.

From a wrist X-ray to diagnosing the problem through treatment and ongoing support, Orthopedic Specialists is here to help you maintain your wrist health!

Our physical therapists provide expertise and support with wrist injury recovery, wrist surgery recovery, and more. In addition to our physical therapy services, we also offer orthopedic surgeon-approved wrist equipment (such as wrist wraps, wrist braces, wrist splints, and more).

As experienced orthopedic healthcare providers, our wrist specialists always consider using nonsurgical treatments to treat wrist conditions and injuries. When nonsurgical treatments are not an effective option, we provide advanced surgical services.
