OUR TREATMENT FOR YOUR PAIN.
Injuries and medical conditions can incapacitate your hands. Hand arthritis is characterized by an inflamed joint. It can affect any joint in your hand or wrist. Arthritis usually comes on gradually; it may begin as mild stiffness or occasional pain, but as it progresses, it becomes very painful and debilitating. It is caused by either:
The cartilage between the bones of the joint wearing away, a condition called osteoarthritis, or Your immune system erroneously attacking the lining of the joint, a condition called rheumatoid arthritis.
Both arthritic conditions lead to pain, inflammation, and stiffness. The most commonly suggested treatments are medications, physical therapy and surgery, but none of these work in every case. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Amniotic Cells, and/or Mesenchymal Stem Cells offer the promise of not only easing your pain, but also treating and restoring some flexibility to your affected hands.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Trigger Finger
These two conditions are related in that both are considered repetitive strain injuries of your hand and wrist. Both also affect the nerves that innervate your hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger are caused by a number of different conditions, including:
- Injuries that didn’t heal correctly,
- Inflammation, from rheumatoid arthritis, and
- Any factor that impinges the nerve.
Carpal tunnel syndrome results in a tingling sensation or numbness from your wrist to your fingers. Its symptoms appear when you’re using your hands in a repetitive motion, such as typing. Trigger finger affects one or more of your fingers and can lead to stiffness or popping. If you have trigger finger, you may not be able to straighten the digit.
Your triangular fibrocartilage complex, or TFCC, is the ligament—or thick, fibrous tissue—that connects the ulna bone in your forearm to the bones in your hand. The TFCC ligament stabilizes your wrist on the lateral or pinky finger side while supporting your forearm bones. Like all ligaments in your body, it’s usually difficult to damage. TFCC tears do not respond well to surgery.
If you do suffer an injury that results in a TFCC tear, you will feel it immediately. Your wrist swells up, and it hurts every time you move it. Most doctors recommend that you visit a surgeon because torn ligaments don’t heal on their own. But surgery isn’t always the best solution. Even when performed by one of the best surgeons, it can still leave you with long-term pain and limitation in your wrist’s flexibility.
You have 206 bones in your body, and 54 of them are in your hands. With so many bones, tendons, muscles and supporting tissues, the danger of injury increases. That’s why you must take care of your hands and wrists. By keeping them healthy, you can be productive at whatever you do.
If you suffer from hand arthritis, instability, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger or TFCC tear, seek the advice of your physician. You can get relief from a number of advanced, minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime. The entire outpatient procedure takes less than an 15 minutes in most cases.

Solutions to Wrist Instability and TFCC Tears
After an accident, injury, or surgery, your wrist may feel unsteady as if you do not have the strength you used to have. This instability can be caused by several different conditions. With eight bones and eight ligaments in your wrist, the movements of your wrist depend on everything working together properly. If even one of the small bones slips out of position, it can limit your flexibility.
As a result, you may feel pain or experience limited movement from the instability. Physical therapy, steroid injections, and even surgery can help, but the condition invariably leads to the onset of arthritis. Instead of those traditional treatment options, consider regenerative therapy. Using your own stem cells, this procedure can heal your instability from the inside. Stem cells are injected into your wrist, where they work to rebuild the damage while reducing the pain and inflammation.
Depending on the extent and location of your wrist injury, you may benefit from less invasive and more advanced treatments. Talk to a leading stem cell specialist in South Florida like Dr. Neel Amin, M.D. He can guide you toward the most effective treatment for your particular case, such as:
PRP or Platelet rich plasma injections, Amniotic Fluid Cells, and Stem cell therapy.
