The hand complex is made up of many small bones, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Our hands and fingers play a vital role in many precise everyday activities such as grabbing, twisting and manipulating objects.
Common sources of hand and finger pain include:
- Distal radioulnar and carpal fractures
- Neural injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ligament sprains and tears
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
Prolonged pain and disuse due to injury may lead to joint stiffness, muscle weakness and further chronic issues if not assessed and treated appropriately.
