When to See An Orthopedist
If you are experiencing pain in your hand or wrist, you may be experiencing symptoms of either Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Trigger Finger. Certain symptoms differentiate the two conditions, and dictate the course of treatment. Carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger both affect your hand; causing pain, stiffness, and reduced ability to work or manipulate objects. An orthopedist can correctly diagnose and treat the symptoms of either Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Trigger Finger.
