More Info

Bone injury and diseases affect all parts of the wrist and hand. The wrist contains eight bones while the hand involves a system of metacarpals and phalanges (small bones of the finger). Pain in the hand is often caused by a bone fracture. Symptoms can include swelling, visible deformity, shortened finger, loss of mobility, or crossed fingers when making a fist. Joints in the hand can also suffer from degenerative diseases like diabetes or arthritis. Fractures and arthritis in the bones of the hand can also contribute to the nerve disorder known as Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist. Other hand conditions impact tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Hand pain from these types of disorders can include: Trigger Finger De Quervain's Tendinosis, Flexor tendon injuries, Du Dupuytren's disease, Ganglion cysts, Raynaud's phenomenon.
