A hand specialist is trained to both diagnose and treat problems related to all of the different structures in the hand, wrist, and forearm. The hand is a unique area of the human body – it’s made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. All of the different elements must work together seamlessly for the hand to function properly. The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined – even a small injury can have a massive impact on the way the hand’s range of motion and its overall functionality. If you have suffered a hand injury or are struggling with hand pain, it’s vital that you seek out treatment from the New York hand surgery specialists at OrthoManhattan.
