Hand & Upper Extremity Injuries

Combining the latest technology with subspecialty expertise, the hand and upper extremity braces provide the highest quality care to children and adults for the full spectrum of injuries and disorders.

Our team features not only technical specialization but also excellence treatment skills, all for the benefit of our patients. We offer a broad range of interventions, from complex to the latest, innovative minimally invasive treatments and our vast experience include both common and more complex upper extremity and hand injuries. Our team provides a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach, and we are committed to individual needs and ensuring the best outcomes.

The upper extremity consists of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Problems in these areas can be the result of injury, disease or repetitive motion and are increasingly common. The hand, and indeed the entire upper extremity, is critically dependent upon precise anatomical relationships where even a seemingly innocuous problem can upset the delicate biomechanical balance necessary for normal, pain-free function. Without appropriate treatment for hand and upper extremity injuries, even a mild disorder of the upper-extremity can significantly impair quality of life.

The upper extremity consists of three parts: the arm, the forearm and the hand.

The Arm: The arm, or brachium, is technically only the region between the shoulder and elbow. It consists of a single long bone called the humerus which is the longest bone in the upper extremity.

The Forearm: The forearm is the region between the elbow and the wrist. It is formed by the radius on the lateral side and the ulna on the medical side when the forearm is viewed in the anatomical position.

The Hand: The hand consist of three parts (the wrist, palm and five fingers) and 27 bones allow for a wide variety of movements and dexterity. Any irregularity, in any of these parts, can interfere with activities of daily living (ADLs). Our hands may be affected by many disorders, most common traumatic injury. This leads to the importance of Upper Extremity Orthosis. With Orthodynamic wide range of upper extremity products most of these problems, including post-operative and conservative management of the hand, are taken care of. The orthodynamic range of products covers arm, forearm, wrist, palm and fingers, thereby offering a definite solution for treating hand problems.
