Wrist and Hand Treatment

Our hands and wrists are complex structures, and that complexity is what allows us to articulate them with such detail. When you wiggle your fingers or swivel your wrist, you’re activating a variety of tendons, ligaments and muscles, all of which can become stiff, painful, or uncomfortable when compromised by an orthopaedic injury or condition.

Surgical and Non-Surgical Options for Hand & Wrist Injuries

As Pensacola’s top hand and wrist surgeon, Dr. de Campos is proud to provide her patients with the least invasive solutions possible for their hand and wrist pain.

Some of the most frequently-provided non-invasive, in-office treatments Dr. de Campos provides for her patients include:

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some common risk factors for hand and wrist injuries?

Wrist and hand injuries are commonly found in patients who:

  • Play sports such as football, softball, wrestling, tennis, and lacrosse
  • Frequently use repetitive hand or wrist motions at work 
  • Having already injured your hand or wrist once in the past

If these risk factors sound familiar to you, and you’re experiencing hand or wrist pain, it may be time to consult an orthopaedic specialist like Dr. de Campos.

How long does recovery from a hand or wrist injury typically take?

Every patient is unique, and your recovery time will depend on the nature of your injury, the severity of your injury, and individual factors regarding your medical history, fitness level, and personal recovery goals. Dr. de Campos will communicate with you candidly throughout your treatment process.

Will I need physical therapy following my hand or wrist treatment?

Yes! Physical therapy is an essential element of a full recovery from any orthopaedic injury, and hand and wrist injuries are no exception. You will likely need physical therapy to fully recover your strength, mobility, and flexibility, even if you opt for non-surgical treatment. This is especially true if you are an athlete whose goal is to return to peak performance in your sport of choice.
