Causes of Hand Pain:
Hand pain can result from a multitude of issues, spanning repetitive strain injuries to conditions like rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Common causes include:
- Arthritis: Inflammation of the joints, limiting hand function. Osteoarthritis (OA) is caused by wear and tear, while RA is an autoimmune disease.
- Repetitive Strain: Prolonged repetitive actions leading to inflammation and swelling of nerves and tendons, such as carpal tunnel syndrome affecting the median nerve.
- De Quervain’s Disease: Pain and swelling of tendons around the thumb, potentially causing pain in the lower arm.
- Finger Sprains: Damage to ligaments when the finger is bent in a way that causes pain, swelling, and restricted mobility.
- Trigger Finger: Stenosing tenosynovitis, involving swelling of connective tissue at the base of the thumb or finger, leading to a popping sensation during movement.
Diagnosing Your Hand Pain:
Given the diverse potential causes for hand pain, our comprehensive diagnostic approach is essential. We start by discussing your symptoms, history, and treatment goals, followed by a thorough examination. Advanced diagnostic tools, including ultrasound, bone scans, MRI, CT scans, and nerve conduction studies, may be used to uncover the source of your hand pain.
