Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease affecting various areas of the upper extremities, including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, thumb, and fingers. At HSA, we specialize in diagnosing, managing, and treating osteoarthritis in these critical areas, helping patients find relief from pain and regain function.
Elbow osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the elbow joint wears down, resulting in pain, swelling, and limited mobility. Non-operative treatments like activity modification, physical therapy, medications, and joint injections often alleviate symptoms. In more advanced cases, surgical interventions, such as elbow joint arthroplasty or arthroscopy, may be recommended to restore function and reduce discomfort.
