Upper and Lower Extremity Fractures
A fracture is a break in the continuity of a bone. It may involve the bones of the upper and lower extremities. The severity of the fracture can vary and is confirmed with the help of imaging studies. Fracture care is the treatment or medical care rendered to a patient with a diagnosed fracture.
The hand and wrist consist of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and many blood vessels and nerves. This is one of the most flexible and useful parts of our body and can suffer injury due to overuse or trauma.
Fractures are more common in children due to their activities as well as their bone properties. Children are more active than adults and the management of fractures in them also differs as compared to that in adults.
The term arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint but is generally used to describe any condition in which there is damage to the cartilage. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury.
Joint injections are used to treat pain and inflammation in your joints. They involve injection of specific therapeutic agents such as corticosteroids, hyaluronic acid products (viscosupplementation), and blood-derived products into the affected joint.
