Hand & Upper Extremity
Your hands and arms play an important function in practically every activity you perform – reaching, touching, grasping, holding, cradling, lifting, and so much more. When the bones, nerves, joints, or muscles of your hands and upper extremities are injured, your overall quality of life tends to suffer.
The physicians at Advanced Orthopedic Center in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida, offer cutting-edge treatments and a variety of diagnostic tests to help their patients get back to living their lives in their pre-injury or pre-disease conditions.

It’s a common misconception that injuries only occur in the event of an accident. In reality, many of the conditions listed above that affect the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands are caused by overuse of the affected area. Men, women, and children who are more active and exercise regularly or participate in sports are more likely to experience use-related injuries.
While most of our patients are aware that they have obtained an injury, sometimes our patients are unsure. Common symptoms of a hand or upper extremity condition include:
- Swelling or bruising
- Limited range of motion
If you or a loved one are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms persistently over an extended period of time, we highly encourage you schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic experts. Our board-certified physicians will be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your condition, and provide you with tailored diagnostic testing and treatment plans.
Diagnostic Testing and Treatment for Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, and Hand Injuries
