Nerve

Injuries to a nerve can cause devastating pain and disability. Nerve damage can interrupt critical signals between the brain and muscles, preventing muscles from properly working, causing debilitating pain, and disrupting almost every aspect of normal life.

At Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group, our hand and wrist specialists are experts at treating both common and complex nerve conditions and injuries. In fact, it is one of our specialties. Our highly skilled surgeons have the extensive training and years of experience to address nerve injuries anywhere in the body, with an emphasis on hands and upper extremities.

Nerve-related disorders of the hand can be especially frustrating, making it difficult to hold and use objects such as a coffee cup, pen, or cell phone. Nerve damage can make you feel clumsy and awkward as you navigate through your day.

Common nerve conditions include brachial plexus injuries (BPI), which affect the nerves located near the shoulder, controlling the muscles that allow you to feel sensation in the hands, shoulders, and arms. In acute cases, it can cause weakness, pain, or even paralysis of the hand, elbow, shoulder, and arm.

Carpal tunnel syndrome, which is caused by swelling of the tissues pressing on the nerves that run from the forearm to the palm, can be aggravated by repetitive motions, injuries, or disorders such as diabetes.

If you need treatment for nerve-related traumatic injuries or chronic conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder, we are here to help.

From advanced diagnostics to exceptional occupational and hand therapy to surgical and nonsurgical treatments, we know about upper extremity nerve care. Call (719) 632-7669 to make an appointment today or use our online appointment request form at your convenience.
