Online Guide to Hand & Upper Extremity Care


Athletes, workers, artists, students, busy moms and dads, and even surgeons all use their hands and arms for almost every daily task. Every part of our upper extremity—from our fingers to our wrists to our forearms, elbows, and shoulders—plays a crucial role that we might not even be aware of until there is stiffness or pain.

For any injury or condition in your upper extremity, you deserve to know about the source and solutions to your limitation. At Advanced Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we actively work hard to ensure that you are empowered to make the right care decisions for you, and we have developed our Online Guide to Hand & Upper Extremity Care to better support your healthcare journey.
