Arm & Hand Pain


Arm & Hand PainWe use our arms and hands every single day and any type of pain can be debilitating. Pain in these areas can be due to a wide variety of problems in the joints, muscles, or nerves. Sometimes, the pain can be further up your arm and be caused by injury or irritation of nerves in your neck or upper spine. Injury to the arms or hands makes activities such as writing, showering, lifting objects, and others extremely difficult to perform.

At Align Spine and Pain, we will partner with you to identify the correct diagnosis. This personalized process begins by understanding your unique experience, taking a thorough history and performing a detailed exam. We strive to provide each patient with hope and optimism as we work together to return them to their best.

Patient Resources

Patients often find it difficult to recall details about their pain. We know keeping track of symptoms, medications, surgeries, and even your care team can be a frustrating process.
