UNDERSTANDING HAND/FINGER PAIN

Hand and finger pain can arise from various factors, impacting your daily activities and overall quality of life. Here are some common conditions that may contribute to discomfort in your hands and fingers.

Trigger Finger

Trigger finger occurs when a finger’s tendon becomes inflamed and causes the finger to catch or lock. This can lead to pain and difficulty moving the affected finger.

Arthritis of Hand

Arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, can affect the joints in the hands, causing pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are crucial in managing arthritis-related hand pain.

Swellings in the Hand-Ganglions

A ganglion is a non-cancerous, fluid-filled lump that commonly develops along tendons or joints in the hand and wrist. While generally harmless, ganglions can cause discomfort and affect hand functionality.

Dupuytren's Disease/Contracture

Dupuytren’s Disease is a condition that affects the connective tissue beneath the skin in the palm of your hand. Over time, this tissue can thicken and form tight cords, leading to the development of nodules and, in more severe cases, finger contractures.

Hand Infections

Hand infections can occur due to various factors, ranging from minor cuts and injuries to more severe conditions. If you suspect a hand infection or are experiencing symptoms, seek timely evaluation and treatment.
