Causes and Effective Solutions for Hand Pain
Hand pain can be caused due to various reasons, affecting your daily activities and diminishing your quality of life. Some of the common causes of hand pain include:
- Arthritis: Inflammation of the joints, leading to pain, swelling, and stiffness.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Caused by the compression of the median nerve, resulting in numbness, tingling sensation, and pain in your hand and fingers.
- Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons due to repetitive strain, leading to discomfort and reduced mobility.
- Fractures and Sprains: Broken bones or ligament damage, usually due to trauma or accidents, can cause severe hand pain.
Your treatment options will depend on the underlying cause of your hand pain. In all cases, however, Dr. Yaffe and the team at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists will use the least invasive, most conservative approach first.
