The Forearm

Forearm pain can come from injury or damage to any tissue located here, and can come from a variety of sources, including serious accidents that may result in amputation. Crushing or cutting injuries may damage any of the tissues in this area, which are also susceptible to infection, especially from animal bites.

Amputation and Prosthetics

If the damage is severe enough, it may be necessary to remove part of the forearm and provide a modern replacement for the hand and wrist. Many options are available, and cosmetic look and function may dictate your choice.

Congenital Hand Differences

When a fetus develops in the womb, different factors can produce results that aren't typical. Surgery can correct some of these differences, which are sometimes genetic, especially those that are mostly cosmetic in nature.

Extensor Tendon Injuries

The tendons that run from the forearm to muscles in the fingers can easily be damaged. These particular tendons give us the ability to straighten our fingers and are attached to muscles in our forearm.

Flexor Tendon Injuries

These tendons, which permit fine movement of our fingers, can be cut or damaged if the forearm is injured. Surgery can be used to bring cut ends together so that the tendon can grow back together.

Human and Animal Bites

Bites can produce injuries to deep tissues, and infections that worsen the condition are very possible. Any bite carries with it the possibility of infection, and home efforts may be inadequate to fully cleanse the bite.

Vascular Disorders

A great number of veins and arteries that are susceptible to injury from accidents or disease carry blood through this area. A damaged vein or artery can lead to permanent damage in the part of the body it serves, but these tissues can often be replaced or repaired through surgery.
