Think about your average day and how often you use your wrists and elbows. From brushing your teeth to waving hello, you need your wrists and elbows. But if something goes wrong and you develop a wrist condition or elbow condition, then it may be time to turn to a specialist so you can move smoothly through your day. 

Conditions Explained

Instead of wondering what may be going wrong with your wrist or elbow, find a specialist who can appropriately diagnose your condition. Some common diagnoses include: 

Carpal Turnel Syndrome

A median nerve at the wrist experiences high levels of pressure resulting in thickening and tightening that can result in wrist pain and numbness and tingling extending into the fingers and can cause clumsiness

Ganglion cysts

Fluid-filled, round sacs develop around the wrist or hand, and although usually benign, they can cause pain or difficulty with motion in the wrist or hand

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

A sports injury that results from injury or overuse and can lead to pain outside the elbow and forearm that often radiates down the arm to the back of the wrist and fingers, often causing loss of strength in the wrist and hand grip

Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)

A sports injury that results from injury or overuse and is characterized by pain that often starts on the inside of the elbow and can radiate down to the side of the forearm and wrist 

Cubital tunnel syndrome

Pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow creates numbness and tingling in both the small and ring finger, causing clumsiness and a weak grip

Treatment Options

It can be all too easy to adapt to a wrist or elbow condition and ignore the symptoms, but there are many treatments that can help you restore function. Some of your choices may be: 

  • Activity modifications
  • Aspiration for cysts
  • Elbow pads
  • Ergonomic changes
  • Night-time splinting
  • Steroid injections 
  • Surgery 
  • Wrist braces

Patient Testimonial

“I broke my wrist on a Saturday and was told by the ER I would need surgery. I was called by the office Monday morning, and an appointment was made that same week. I met Dr. Kaushik, who explained the complexity of my fracture, the risks and benefits of surgery, and my expected recovery time. He provided me with all the pre-op information and answered all my questions. Surgery went very smoothly. I was pleased to see that he made the incision around my tattoo, and it has healed wonderfully.”
