Also called adhesive capsulitis, this condition can restrict movement of the ball and socket joint of the shoulder. Lifting the arm, forward elevation and reaching up or behind the back can cause a tremendous amount of pain restricting the amount of use. Patient’s may notice an inability to brush their hair, put hair into a ponytail, reach into cabinets, or reach behind their back to grab things out of the backseat of their car. Symptoms may worsen over time with increased amounts of immobility. It is very important to increase flexibility with this condition and get the patient back to normal daily activities.
Hand, Foot, Wrist, and Ankle
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is very common affecting the hand and possibly the arm. Hand tingling, numbness and pain are common symptoms which may even wake you up at night. This pain could get worse while bending the wrist or gripping an object. There are several treatments including non-surgical and surgical options. If surgery is right for you, Dr. Spott uses a minimally invasive technique with a small camera. This is a simple, outpatient procedure, where patients will go home the same day.
