Your Best Wrist Forward
Recently we have delved into the various functions of the body including the shoulder and the knee. The wrist, though a smaller part of the body, is intricate and in need of care and attention. The wrist is made up of several small bones, eight to be exact, known as carpals. Those bones support a tubal structure that runs through your wrist. That tube is called the carpal tunnel, and it has tendons and a nerve inside. It is covered by a ligament, which holds it in place.
Wrist pain is extremely common. Repetitive motion can damage your wrist. Typing, tennis, knitting can cause pain, or even carpal tunnel syndrome. Wrist pain that involves bruising and swelling can be a sign of injury. The signs of a possible fracture include misshapen joints and inability to move your wrist. Some wrist fractures are a result of osteoporosis.
Other common causes of wrist or hand pain are sprains and strains, tendonitis, arthritis, gout and pseudo-gout.
If you suffer from chronic or acute wrist or hand pain due to arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or injury, then you may benefit from physical therapy, traditional orthopedic care, non-surgical stem cell injections or even stem cell-enhanced surgery.
At McKenna Orthopedics, we specialize in treating wrist discomfort, carpal tunnel syndrome, stem cell injections and surgery.
At McKenna Orthopedics we are augmenting BMAC with a proprietary, pliable tissue allograft (transplant) derived from human stem cells (donated from the amniotic tissue from a live birth), which functions as a biologic structural matrix to accelerate and enhance tissue healing and repair. It contains 108 different growth factors including more than 10 times the amount of WNT-4 and more than 60 times the amount of prostaglandin as competing products.
Prostaglandin inhibits inflammation, which occurs after injury and marks the beginning of the healing process. The faster we can tame this inflammation, the sooner the body can move on to the next phase of healing, regeneration.
