By the number of named anatomical structures the hand and wrist is by far the most complex part of the musculoskeletal system. There are 29 separate bones with a multitude of muscles and ligaments to move and stabilize these bones.
It follows that the hand and wrist can be affected by many conditions associated by trauma, or repetitive stress, fractures, joint sprains and tendonitis are common.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
In the computer age this condition has become well-known.
Repetitive stress at the wrist irritates the median nerve causing pain (especially night pain), weakness, and numbness. Often one has to stop their activity and shake their hand to lessen the symptoms. Improved ergonomics (economics of the work station) has reduced the frequency of this syndrome. However if the nerve becomes chronically damaged, then surgical release of the pressure becomes necessary.
Dr.Glidden has been trained in various mini open and arthroscopic techniques in performing this procedure.
Additional hand/ wrist conditions not yet mentioned but encountered by Dr. Glidden include:
- Trigger fingers
If conservative treatments fail with these conditions, then minor surgery is successful.
