TREATING SPORTS INJURIES OF THE HAND, WRIST, ELBOW AND SHOULDER

Sports activities are common causes of injuries to the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Our physicians have evaluated and treated all types of sports-related injuries from broken wrists to tendonitis in the shoulder from overuse.

Many sports injuries can stop you in your tracks, such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear or a fracture. Other injuries such as a sprain or overuse injury can cause continuous pain. You should seek medical attention if pain persists in one area of your body when participating in sports or other activities.
