Dislocations/Ligament Injuries Katy TX
Dislocations and ligament injuries of the upper extremity are extremely common. The fingers and thumb are often injured after a fall or while playing sports. Extreme sports and automobile accidents can cause injuries to the major joints of the hand and wrist.
Unfortunately, many people assume that dislocations simply need to be put back in place and buddy-taped. For minor injuries this can be appropriate, however, more severe injuries may require alternative treatments including surgery. If not correctly addressed in a timely fashion, moderate to severe injuries can lead to permanent disability including long term pain, stiffness, and joint instability. Proper treatment of dislocations and ligament injuries requires timely and accurate diagnosis by a trained professional.
If you think you have sustained a dislocation or ligament injury of the fingers, hand, or wrist, please contact our office at 832-232-HAND (4263) to be evaluated by Dr. Das or Dr. Stephenson.
