They’re made of an incredible network of bones, cartilage, nerves, connective tissues and joint fluid — all working together to perform some of the strongest and most intricate movements on a daily basis. And yet, they’re surprisingly delicate. When your hands and wrists hurt — whether from carpal tunnel, a jammed finger or worse — it often seems like you can’t focus on anything else.
Hand pain and wrist pain can be caused by overuse, traumatic injuries, or arthritis and other diseases. Some issues can be treated at home with anti-inflammatory medications and hot or cold treatments, but you should always be checked out by a hand doctor first. Depending upon the severity of your condition, orthopaedic care may be needed to avoid long-term complications. Your treatment may range from physical therapy to corticosteroid injections to surgery.
