Symptoms and Treatment of Hand Pain - An Insight!

Hand pain is a problem that may stem from injury or disease which may affect any structure of the hand such as the bones, muscles, joints, tendons and blood vessels. It is one of the manifestations of joint inflammation and may be caused by repetitive motion injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome and can cause pain in the hand and wrist.

What are the symptoms of hand pain?
As mentioned earlier, hand pain may affect any part of the hand including wrist, middle knuckles of the fingers, fingertips and basilar joints connecting the thumb and wrist. If you have osteoarthritis, the cartilage in between the joints starts wearing down and leads to the collision of bones.

The symptoms of hand pain may include an ache which worsens when the affected hand is used. It may also lead to stiffness of the joints, difficulty in moving the fingers, swelling along with tenderness in the knuckles and wrist.

Heberden nodes may also be affected in some people suffering from hand pain. It is important to note here that a bone spur is a hardened area of the bone which attaches the bone to the joint. The spurs present in the hands are called Heberden nodes. It consists of hard, round and swollen areas which develop in the joint near the fingertips. This condition is permanent which makes the fingers appear misshapen. People who have arthritis of joints can also suffer from bony nodes known as Bouchard’s nodes.

Who are at a higher risk of having hand pain?
People with a family history of joint disorders are likely to have hand pain. It may also affect those who perform a job which demands an excessive use of hands such as manufacturing any product. The more one uses his or her hands, the more wear and tear take place on the joints and cartilage of the hands. Females are at a higher risk of developing hand pain stemming from arthritis.

How to treat hand pain?
There are many medicinal choices to treat hand arthritis. One may tackle hand arthritis with the help of pain relieving medicines, steroid injections and exercises. In case these treatments fail to offer some relief, surgery can be the most suitable way of treating this problem. Your doctor will be able to advise in this regard.

Some home treatments can help in reducing the pain as well as the disability of the hand. An easy and non-invasive method of treatment is to keep the hands as flexible as you can while improving the range of motion gradually. Your doctor may also recommend some muscle strengthening exercise that can support the structure of the hand. With regular practice, you will be able to perform your daily tasks with lesser discomfort.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

5 Causes Of Hand Pain!

5 Causes Of Hand Pain!

There are 27 bones in the human hand. An injury to any one of them or a disease that affects the bones, tendons, muscles or blood vessels in the hand, are the most likely causes for pain in the hand and tenderness.

Some of the most common conditions that cause hand pain are:

  1. De Quervain's Tendinitis: Pain on and around the thumb is the characteristic sign of this condition. This pain may develop gradually or come on suddenly and can travel the length of the thumb and forearm. De Quervain's tendinitis is caused by the swelling of wrist tendons at the base of the thumb. Repetitive actions and overuse are the most common triggers for this condition.

  2. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are felt mainly in the thumb, index finger and middle finger. This pain is often worse at night and is caused by the swelling of inflamed tendons at the base of the hand that puts pressure on the median nerve. This syndrome can make it very difficult for a person to grip objects.

  3. Fractures: The fracture can cause extreme pain along with stiffness, swelling and loss of movement. A fracture refers to the breaking of a bone and can be of many types including simple fractures, complex fractures, comminuted fractures and compound fractures. The type of fracture dictates the type of treatment required. Spraining a muscle in the hand is another leading cause of pain in the hands.

  4. Arthritis: This is one of the most common causes of pain in the hand that is related to ageing. Arthritis causes loss of cartilage that makes the movement of one bone against the other extremely painful. It may or may not also be accompanied by swelling. When it comes to the hand, arthritis affects the base of the thumb and middle or top joints of the fingers. Osteoarthritis may also cause bony nodules to be formed on the fingers.

  5. Trigger Finger: This condition is also known as stenosing tenosynovitis. This condition locks the fingers or thumb in a bent position. This condition is triggered by the flexor tendons getting irritated. These tendons control the movements of the thumb and fingers. As the tendon is inflamed, the sheath that surrounds the tendons may also thicken and nodules may form of the affected tendons. People suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, gout and diabetes are at a high risk of suffering from this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

Hand Pain and Its Causes - Know About It!

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
