Your hands are the means by which you touch and discover your world. Your elbow and shoulder are no less critical! They are the tools that allow you to work, play and enjoy life. Because you rely on your hands and upper extremities to do so much, they can be subject to injury and overuse. Hands are often affected by the normal wear and tear on joints that can result in arthritis. Unfortunately these and other conditions, and even problems with the elbow and shoulder, can compromise the way you’re able to use your hands.
