Bone infections , also known as osteomyelitis, are serious medical problems that require the skillful treatment planning of an orthopedist.
An orthopedist can treat patients who have wrist injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when pressure is exerted on the median nerve. This nerve extends from the brachial plexus in the shoulder area, down the forearm, and through the wrist. In the wrist, it extends through a small bony passageway known as the carpal tunnel. When there isn’t enough space for the nerve within this passageway, the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can develop.
For more information on carpal tunnel syndrome, consult an orthopedist and watch this brief video. You’ll see an animation of the anatomy of the wrist and you’ll hear how repetitive movements can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.
