At Rapid Orthopaedic Care, we treat a variety of hand and wrist injuries. Whether it is an injury on the field, around the house or that nagging pain you have had for a few weeks – our Orthopaedic Specialists can diagnose and treat your injury. We have on-site X-Ray as well as evening and weekend hours at our location in West Olympia so that you can be seen on your schedule.
Some of the common hand and wrist injuries we treat include:
Hand or Wrist Pain and Swelling
It is important to be seen immediately for pain or swelling in the hand or wrist as this may be the sign of an underlying injury such as a tendon, ligament or bone injury.
Hand or Wrist Fractures
A fracture to any part of the hand or wrist is a common result of a slip and fall or sudden impact. The hand or wrist can be fractured in several areas and common symptoms include pain, swelling, weakness or visible deformity under the skin. If any portion of the bone is visible outside of the skin, please go to nearest Emergency Room.
Finger dislocations occur when the bones of the finger are moved outside their normal position within the joint and can occur at both the tips and base of the finger. These injuries are often the result of jamming the finger, high impact collision during sports or a fall onto the outstretched hand. Common symptoms of a finger dislocation include pain, swelling, difficulty bending the finger, bruising or paleness of the finger and a visible deformity under the skin.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that occurs as a result of irritation to the median nerve. The median nerve travels down the forearm and passes through the carpal tunnel at the wrist and into the hand. When this nerve is irritated it can cause pain, weakness, numbness and tingling in the fingers.
