How Denver Orthopedic Surgeons Treat Baseball Arm and Hand Injuries

Minor injuries may be addressed through conservative treatment and rehabilitation. In these cases, qualified Denver orthopedic surgeons usually advise athletes to rest the worn ligaments, muscles, or bones. Medications may be prescribed for pain, while casts, splints, slings, and other corrective or assistive devices may help stabilize the injury and enhance the healing process. As for rehabilitation (which is also necessary for surgical cases), injured athletes may be required to sit out games and practices for weeks or even months, depending on their condition. During this period, physical therapy helps restore the full function and mobility of the affected hand, elbow, arm, and/or shoulder.
