Shoulder, Arm, Elbow, Wrist & Hand Centre

The Upper Extremity Center at KIMS addresses pain symptoms related to shoulder, arm, and hand problems. Sometimes upper extremity injuries can be caused by traumatic injury from an automobile accident, fall or impact from a contact sport. Other times, upper extremity problems are caused by a strain of tendons and joints from repetitive activities. Tennis players can develop extensive shoulder and elbow problems from the repetitive strain on the racquet arm. Overhead motions required by tennis serve or throwing a ball or football, all can lead to a shoulder strain. KIMS Orthopedic Institute has physicians who specialize in arm and hand and treat a variety of surgical and nonsurgical problems, in addition to a team of physical therapists and occupational therapists. Unlike some other orthopedic problems, those suffering from pain symptoms in the shoulder, arm, hand, and wrist can span all age ranges, from young

Children to older adults. For younger people, overuse injuries can be a common by-product of active participation in competitive sports. The training involved in competitive sports can lead to joint or ligament strain, or even stress fractures in the bones in the arm and hand. For older people, since arthritis becomes more commonplace with age, shoulder pain can become more prevalent. Work-related injuries also play a large role with upper extremity injuries, especially where a person has a job involving heavy manual labor. The good news is that many shoulders, arm, and hand problems can be addressed with minimally invasive surgery involving tiny incisions and the use of scopes. This shortens the incision and lessens disruption to the muscles and joint area. The hands and upper extremities are some of the most complex and important parts of our body, allowing us to function and communicate in the world. Throughout our lives, our hands, wrists, forearms, and elbows are extremely vulnerable to injuries, overuse, and numerous conditions including arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists and hands are important parts of our body. Though they provide us with mobility and stability, they are very susceptible to injuries. There are many types of injuries associated with shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, and hand problems.

A shoulder injury occurs when the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones of the shoulder joint become damaged. A common problem associated with shoulder injuries is rotator cuff tear. Rotator cuff tears are caused by repetitive motions such as lifting heavy objects, throwing a ball, carrying groceries, and working on assembly lines.

On the other hand, arm injuries can happen due to direct trauma or overuse. Fractures of the forearm bone are very common among athletes who play contact sports. Carpal tunnel syndrome is another condition affecting the wrist region. Tennis players, computer keyboard operators, and musicians are some of the professionals that are prone to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

In the end, wrist injuries can occur due to excessive use or direct trauma. Sprains are the most common form of wrist injury. Rheumatoid arthritis is another disease affecting the wrist joints. Degenerative arthritis causes the cartilage to wear away causing inflammation and swelling. Osteoarthritis affects the entire body but mainly affects the weight-bearing joints like knees, hips, ankles, wrists, neck, and spine.


Diagnosing a shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist & hand condition from the Best Shoulder, Arm, and Hand Hospital in Kondapur requires a thorough history taking and physical examination. X-rays, MRI scans, ultrasound, CT scans and blood tests may be required depending on the severity of the condition.


Treatment options vary according to the type of injury. Surgery is usually recommended for fractures, dislocated shoulders, and severe tendon ruptures. On the other hand, the Top Orthopedic Hospital in Kondapur may recommend physical therapy to treat muscle strains and sprains. Anti-inflammatory medications are also commonly prescribed.
