What Causes Hand, Wrist, or Finger Pain?
The hand has delicate structures like the joints and muscles that enable precise movement. However, they are at risk of sustaining an injury. Depending on your lifestyle and health, you may be prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, De Quervain’s tendinopathy, trigger finger, and osteoporosis. These five problems can cause mild or severe pain in the hand, wrists, or fingers.
Repetitive motions and activities that lead to hand, wrists, or finger pain are the most common. Extended computer usage, the position of the wrist on the keyboard or mouse, assembly job lines, and hand tools are all examples of repetitive movements.
What Other Symptoms Can Occur Besides Hand, Wrist, or Finger Pain?
- Pain along the nerves, muscles, and tendons
- Swelling or inflammation in the hands
- Weakness, numbness, or tingling in the fingers
- Stiffness in the hands or joints
