You might have pain with reaching or gripping. Or, pain with use of your arms/hands when performing daily tasks. Common hand conditions include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Wrist or Hand Tendonitis
- Hand Arthritis
Shoulder or Elbow conditions:
Rotator Cuff Injuries
The rotator cuff is a tendon that connects 4 muscles to the long bone of the upper arm, called the humerus. Its job is to stabilize and help lift the arms overhead or into positions we need for many activities. When there is pain or inability in these activities, it can be from an injury to this large tendon known as the rotator cuff.
This is when the joint becomes so tight that it appears the joint is actually frozen. It is sometimes caused by a painful condition left untreated. Because the shoulder can become so tight and limit range of motion, a person might have a tough time bathing or showering.
Tendonitis or Bursitis
Tendonitis or bursitis is often interchangeable and sometimes associated with "impingement syndrome." This pain might occur only with certain positions of the arm, night pain, or a combination of both. It can be associated with overuse or a sprained shoulder as well.

"Tennis elbow" is often the phrase used with pain on the outside of the elbow. Pain in the inside of the elbow could be "golfer's elbow."
Whether there is a persistent pain from a "stinger" in football, or elbow or shoulder pain from throwing, or arm/hand pain from a fall or impact, Achieve Rehab can help return your athlete to top performance with a precise rehab program.
Any joint can have a sprain from the overbending of a joint past its normal position. A ligament can also be stretched beyond its normal length and cause pain and swelling.
Often after fractures, the joint is swollen and stiff and therapy is needed to restore range of motion and joint mobility.
