Although the nature of the injury is unclear, what is clear is that even professional athletes can suffer injuries under what seem to be innocuous circumstances, such as a fall from a standing position. Bruising of the fingers, hand, or wrist could be indicative of a severe injury such as a fracture. Professional medical attention is recommended for these types of concerns and a Hand Surgeon is well-qualified to diagnosis and treat such injuries. Dr. Arora is one such qualified individual, a practicing Hand Surgery Specialist in Michigan.

Dr. Aroras office from my first call to schedule my appointment was friendly. Walking in the first day, I felt like I was in a nice atmosphere. Dr. Arora was EXCELLENT in taking great care of my hand injury. He was gentle and very understanding to the concerns I had about my hand. His expertise was admirable and I would recommend anyone with an injury to their hand to his office to be under his care. Because of him, I have healed faster than expected and will make an 100% recovery! Thank you Dr.

I first thought I was going to have to have painful injections or surgery, but Dr. Arora suggested physical therapy may do the trick. I was doubtful, but I agreed to do it. Now, my pain is gone, and with the help of an ergonomic keyboard at work to keep my hands in the correct position, I am virtually pain free. The therapy strengthened my wrists and shoulders, and built more flexibility into my wrists.
