Carpal Tunnel Tune-Up
(http://ow.ly/c8CE30krHyL)

Carpal tunnel is incredibly common, but can have a serious impact on your day to day. Whether it's preventing you from typing on your keyboard for your day job, or affecting your ability to hold knitting needles for your favorite hobby, no one wants to give up what they love due to pain. It's a good idea to partner with a doctor to determine the best plan to treat your individual case, but some half million Americans end up seeking surgical treatment for more permanent relief.

Pinched Nerve: Symptoms and Causes
(http://ow.ly/425C30krHyh)

A pinched nerve may sound fairly innocuous, but it can cause a lot of pain. Whenever too much pressure is applied to a nerve, whether by bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons it can impact the nerve's ability to function. This issue can occur at many sites in the body, but it's most common in areas where there's more nerves concentrated together, like your fingers, wrist or lower back.

Rotator Cuff Damage
(http://ow.ly/JRiw30krHyd)

Your rotator cuff is what gives your shoulder the full range of motion it has, allowing you to life, pull, throw a ball, and swing a bat. Because this group of muscles and tendons are used so frequently there is the potential for damage which can seriously hinder your normal activities. But what exactly does it look like when your rotator cuff is damaged?

(http://ow.ly/2fgE30krHy4)

Have you had to deal with pain from tennis elbow? This painful injury is a form of tendonitis and occurs when you overuse or strain your joints and the tendons become inflamed. It happens more frequently when you play sports like tennis, due to the repetitive motion you make with your arm. It's important to get it treated when the pain first starts in order to avoid surgery.

Do you know the difference beween a sprain and a strain? If you don't you're not alone, as people often confuse the two because the pain can feel so similar. However, it's important to know the key differences between the two: a sprain is a tear in the ligament, while a strain is a tear in the muscle or tendon.

Dr. Alexander is caring and professional.
Dr Sirmon and his staff are very professional and friendly. I’d recommend them to anyone with hand or shoulder problems.
Dr Payne was awesome. I would recommend him to anyone needing a professional and kind doctor. So thankful I was recommended this practice!
Dr Starr was an excellent diagnostician.
Great people great doctor front desk is AWSOME.
Very efficient, busy Bussiness like, clean, organized, and prompt and courteous.
Dr. Payne is my doctor for my wrists and joints in my thumbs. He takes all the time needed to explain the problem and what it will take for the injury to heal. The front office and back office staff are understanding to my needs. I have never had a problem with scheduling or having to reschedule my appointments. They are all wonderful!!!
Dr Payne is amazing. After having surgery this April, I can finally comfortably shoot my shot gun and compound bow again!!!
Incredibly disappointing and frustrating experience. First of all, be prepared to wait an hour+ just to get sat down in another room, for no less than 30 minutes while the staff leisurely walk around, then see the actual doctor for 15 minutes and be sure to have any and all questions for him prepared, because you'll only see him that once! They are more than happy to keep you waiting in that room for another hour (delaying other patients appointments, I am certain!) and lastly, I was escorted out of the room rather rudely when they realized that they had admitted a patient whose insurance they don't accept. The first thing they ask for at the counter is my insurance. They had literal hours to catch this mistake, and now I've wasted a day with no progress made getting back to work. Don't bother fixing my middle finger, it would be stuck out like that to you anyway.
