It’s hard to know what to do when you start experiencing arm pain. What is it, where is it coming from, and why is it happening? More importantly, how do you go about fixing it? Here at the Florida Hand Center, our team of experienced professionals specialize in diagnosing and treating hand and arm conditions. Trust our seasoned orthopedic experts to get you on track and back to doing what you love.
Orthopedic specialists are doctors who treat arm, shoulder, and elbow pain. They can examine your arm and order additional tests (such as X-rays, MRIs, and ultrasounds) to accurately diagnose the problem. They will also provide you with a surgical or non-surgical treatment plan.
At the Florida Hand Center, our hand-picked group of operations specialists and medical aides work tirelessly next to Dr. Helgemo, our top-tier orthopedic surgeons that specialize in hand and arm conditions.
Together, they provide a complete patient experience from beginning to end. Even when your procedure is complete, you can rest assured knowing that our team will never be more than a quick phone call away.
You should seek immediate treatment from a doctor for arm pain caused by a deformity or protruding bone.
Pain that causes severe discomfort, comes on unexpectedly, or is accomplished by a feeling of pressure or tightness in your chest should also be addressed immediately. Arm pain that coincides with chest discomfort may indicate a heart attack.
If the pain is caused by nerve damage, you may be referred to a neurologist or an orthopedic specialist. You may be advised to see a cardiologist or vascular specialist if it’s suspected that your arm pain is related to your heart.
If your nerve pain is caused by hand or arm issues, our surgeons at the Florida Hand Center specialize in surgical and non-surgical treatment options to get you back on the road to recovery.
Dr. Stephen Helgemo leads the practice with over 20 years of medical and surgical experience. He’s a highly respected Board-Certified Arm and Hand Surgeon and a Certified Orthopedic Specialist that has dedicated his practice to helping people achieve a pain-free life.
Tendinitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the tendons in and between your shoulder and elbow. It is often caused by repeatedly using your arm for activities that put strain on it.
Symptoms of tendinitis include:
– Dull throbbing pain, localized to the affected area
– Tenderness in and around the area
– Sharp, radiating pain if tendon ruptures
While most cases of tendinitis can be treated non-surgically with rest, physical therapy and pain medication, severe cases may require surgery.
There are numerous ways to treat orthopedic injuries. These include using the R.I.C.E method (rest, ice, compression, elevation), physiotherapy, prescribed and over-the-counter medications, and joint injections. Orthopedic surgery is also an option for severe injuries.
You can estimate about 12 weeks of healing time for a broken or fractured arm. This can vary depending on the bone and the severity of the break.
We are more than just a service – we’re a committed group of professionals passionate about providing our patients with a life they can live free of pain.
With minimally invasive remedies on offer, and our superior knowledge of surgical and non-surgical treatment options, we will tailor your treatment plan to you for the individual experience you deserve.
