Hand pain is a common problem, and there is scarcely any individual who has not suffered from it. The advancement of medical science has progressed to such an extent that one cannot name an ailment which cannot be managed or treated. But for that, it is very crucial to determine the causes of the problem, and hand pain is no exception to this problem.
Different forms of arthritis along with its related conditions affecting the bones, muscles, and joints can lead to issues such as numbness, stiffness, pain, and inflammation in the wrist, fingers, and hand. Here are some of the most common disease-related cause that can pave the way for pain in wrists and hands.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: This condition arises when the nerve running from the forearm into the hand called the median nerve becomes compressed in the carpal tunnel in the wrist. This nerve is in charge of supplying sense to the palm and thumb side. When it gets compressed, the affected individual may experience pain and weakness in the hand which radiates towards the upper arm.
- Osteoporosis: When the bones start losing mass, they become brittle and prone to breaking even in the slightest trauma. The wrist bones are the most susceptible ones when it comes to fracture arising from osteoporosis. This condition is more commonly seen among aged people who are also suffering from an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, lack of physical activity and low-calcium diet.
- Scleroderma: It stands as an umbrella term depicting the abnormal growth of connective tissue that supports the skin and internal organs. There are different forms of scleroderma, and all of them lead to the hardening, tightening and thickening of the skin covering the fingers known as sclerodactyly.
- Ganglion cysts: These refer to the cysts which are formed next to the tendons or joints in the wrists and hands. The most common location of this problem is at the base of the fingers, joints that are positioned closest to the nail, palm side of the wrist and top of the wrist. It can occur among people of any age, and they tend to come and go without any apparent reason.
- Gout: This is one of the most common forms of arthritis which was believed to affect the big toe only in the past years. But in recent years, it is seen to affect hands and other joints in the body as well. If left untreated, it may lead to lumps of uric acid underneath the skin of hands.
Different types of arthritis: There are various forms of arthritis right from psoriatic arthritis to rheumatoid arthritis to juvenile arthritis to reactive arthritis that may cause pain in hand.

Muscle contusion is a condition that is characterized by bruising in the muscles. It generally tends to occur in athletes who play a lot of contact sports. Repetitive blows in any part of the body may cause damage to the underlying muscle tissues. These blows may lead to internal bleeding, resulting in blood clot formation. The most common site where it occurs are the quadriceps.
The various causes of this condition are:
- Direct repetitive blows to a part of the muscle in contact sports such as football
- If you fall on a hard surface
- It may also occur if the muscle comes in contact real hard with sports equipment like soccer balls
The symptoms of a muscle contusion are:
- You may experience swelling of the muscle
- Excessive pain
- Decrease in range of motion in the concerned body part
- It may lead to leaking of blood vessels
- You may also experience hematoma where a lump is formed over the affected spot
- Symptoms of broken bones, dislocations and fractures may also occur
Complications: This disorder may also lead to various complications such as compartment syndrome, which leads to compression of blood vessels resulting in pain.
Treatment: The basic treatment for this condition is the RICE protocol which is rest, ice, compression and elevation. You should rest the muscle, then apply ice to the affected area to reduce the pain. You can also take NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to reduce the pain. In severe cases, the doctor may drain the lump surgically.
It is advisable to not return to your normal sports routine in order to allow the muscle to recover. If you carry on with your regular routine, it may result in further complications like the formation of scar tissue. You may undergo various stretching exercises to relieve the pain and make a gradual return to your normal sporting activities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.
BEST EXERCISE TO EASE BACK PAIN : SPINAL ROLLING
Fold a bath towel double and place it on a carpeted area of floor to roll on. Do not attempt to roll in bed.
· Lower yourself down carefully to lie on your back on the floor.
· Gather up both thighs and link your fingers under them.
· Lift up your head and neck so your low makes a wide rounded ‘u’ shape on the floor. ( To help keep your upper trunk forward you may need to bend both elbows out to the side as you hold your legs.) The stiffer you are the more difficult it will be get into this position.
· Once in position, rock gently back and forth along the spine with small amplitude movements.· Attempt to pivot on the stiff link in your spine which will be obvious by its ‘bruised bone’ tenderness as you roll over it.
· Use your legs for leverage. As you straighten them out they alter your weight distribution and make it easier to tip towards the lower end of the spine. If you keep your legs bunched up on your chest it will focus the rolling towards the upper end of the spine and require more jerking effort of your head to bring it down to the lower end.
· Continue for 15-30 seconds, trying to relax as much as possible as you do it. Let the gentle rocking motion mesmerize you.
· To rest, put one foot on the floor, and then the other, leaving both knees crooked. Do not put your legs down flat.
· Resume at one minute intervals and repeat up to five times.
· This is not an easy exercise to overdo. Cramp of the tummy muscles may be only thing that stops you.
