Hand pain has many known causes. They occur due to an injury or due to a disease. Fortunately, most of the pain symptoms can be treated. The most important reason for the pain in hand is Hand arthritis. Arthritis affects the cartilage between our joints. Over a period of time, the joints get rubbed against each other instead of a smooth way. This causes pain to the entire hand and can severely curtail the movement for which they are designed for. Hand numbness occurs and the places where it affects the most are the Base of the thumb, the Middle joint of one or more fingers and the End joint, which is the closest one to the finger tip. Hand pain symptoms include severe pain, muscle cramps, swelling and stiffness. Hand Pain Treatment for such a condition includes Anti-inflammatory or analgesic painkillers, Splints for the fingers or wrist, Heat, Physical therapy. The treatment depends on the severity of the case and in some cases where the pain is extreme, surgeries too are performed. The joint is replaced in most of the cases with a joint replacement surgery. In some cases, fractures or hairline cracks could also be the reason for hand pain. Since hand functions are used almost in every activity, a crack can sometimes develop which might not be noted. The condition causes pain and over a period, normal activities cannot be performed. Hand Splints or casts are used for recuperating them, and surgeries are carried out in cases where the complexity of the fracture is severe.
