At Florida Hand Center, our pain specialists have experience treating a wide range of hand and wrist pain. Common causes of hand pain include tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, fractures, nerve damage and more. Each type of hand pain has its own unique set of symptoms and requires different types of treatments to provide relief. Tendonitis is caused by inflammation or irritation in the tendons connecting muscle to bone. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve due to repetitive motions such as typing or using a mouse for long periods of time. Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that causes swelling in the joints which can lead to stiffness and joint pain when moving your hands or wrists. Fractures are broken bones that can be caused by falls or direct trauma while nerve damage may result from injury, disease or overuse leading to numbness and weakness in the fingers and hands. Florida Hand Center offers comprehensive treatments for all these conditions so you can find relief from your hand pain quickly and effectively.
Each type of hand pain requires different types of treatments in order to achieve the best possible outcome. For instance, tendonitis can be treated with rest or certain medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Carpal tunnel syndrome may require physical therapy exercises or even surgery in some cases. Arthritis can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication while fracture healing typically involves immobilization through splinting or casting depending on the severity of the break. Finally, nerve damage often requires specialized treatment depending on its cause such as injections or surgery if necessary.
