Hand and Wrist Arthritis Treatment
from Orthopedic Specialists in the Quad Cities
ORA Orthopedics offers patient-centered hand and wrist arthritis treatment to residents of Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, and other Quad City communities. Generations of patients have trusted us with their joint health since 1963. Today, ORA Orthopedics is the largest and most advanced orthopedic practice in the Quad Cities, and provides the greatest choices in arthritis care.
The hands and wrists are intricate structures. Tiny joints work together to perform delicate motions, like tying a bow, playing the piano, or typing on a keyboard. Arthritis causes the cartilage that cushions these small joints to deteriorate or become inflamed, causing pain, swelling, burning sensations, and even crepitation – the unpleasant sensation of bone-on-bone contact in the hand. Arthritis usually affects people over 50, but fractures and other forms of trauma may lead to arthritis at an earlier age.
At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, our doctors and nurses use their diverse experience and vast resources to help patients get back to the activities they enjoy. We take a conservative approach to arthritis treatment that focuses on reducing pain and improving mobility through non-surgical treatments and therapies, including medications and specialized hand physical therapy from our experienced team of physical and occupational therapists. In the event that surgery is necessary to restore hand and wrist function, our doctors practice the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to reconstruct damaged joints and preserve joint health.
Contact ORA Orthopedics today to schedule an appointment with an ORA doctor. With multiple locations in the Quad Cities and convenient hours, we make it simple to receive the specialized hand and wrist arthritis treatment you need.
