Information for Patients

Arm Injuries and Disorders

Of the 206 bones in your body, 3 of them are in your arm; the humerus, radius and ulna. Your arms are also made up of muscles, joints, tendons and other connective tissue. Injuries to any of these parts of the arm can occur during sports, a fall or an accident.

Types of arm injuries include

  • Tendinitis and bursitis
  • Sprains
  • Dislocations
  • Broken bones

Some nerve problems, arthritis, or cancers can affect the entire arm and cause pain, spasms, swelling and trouble moving. You may also have problems or injure specific parts of your arm, such as your hand, wrist, elbow or shoulder.

  • Arm CT scan
  • Brachial plexopathy
  • Brachial plexus injury in newborns
  • Radial head fracture - aftercare
  • Radial nerve dysfunction
  • Skeletal limb abnormalities
  • Volkmann ischemic contracture

Leg Injuries and Disorders

Your legs are made up of bones, blood vessels, muscles, and other connective tissue. They are important for motion and standing. Playing sports, running, falling, or having an accident can damage your legs. Common leg injuries include sprains and strains, joint dislocations, and fractures.

These injuries can affect the entire leg, or just the foot, ankle, knee, or hip. Certain diseases also lead to leg problems. For example, knee osteoarthritis, common in older people, can cause pain and limited motion. Problems in your veins in your legs can lead to varicose veins or deep vein thrombosis.

  • Blount's disease
  • Bowlegs
  • Common peroneal nerve dysfunction
  • Femoral nerve dysfunction
  • Femur fracture repair - discharge
  • Foot, leg, and ankle swelling
  • Iliotibial band syndrome -- aftercare
  • Ischemic ulcers -- self-care
  • Knock knees
  • Leg CT scan
  • Leg lengthening and shortening
  • Leg or foot amputation
  • Leg pain
  • Shin splints - self-care
  • Skeletal limb abnormalities
  • Tibial nerve dysfunction
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Venous ulcers -- self-care
