Hand Pain

What causes hand pain?

Your hands are your connection to everything you do throughout the day. Acute or chronic hand pain can limit your ability to work, perform daily tasks (like brushing your teeth or eating), and even participate in enjoyable activities. If you’re experiencing hand pain, it could be a sign of:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scleroderma
  • Trigger finger
  • A ganglion cyst
  • Repetitive stress
  • Finger dislocations
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Since any of these conditions, as well as any other causes of hand pain, can worsen if you don’t get started on treatment, it’s important to schedule a hand pain evaluation right away.

When should I see a doctor for hand pain?

At Orthopedic & Wellness, Dr. Ojeyemi and Dr. Roh encourage you to come in for a hand exam as soon as you notice pain in your hand. It’s especially important to book an appointment if you experience:

  • Numbness, burning, or tingling
  • Pain that disrupts your sleep
  • Difficulty grasping objects
  • Worsening pain

If you suffer an injury like a slip-and-fall or sports injury, you need to have your hands examined soon, even if you don’t feel intense pain right away. In some cases, inflammation can progress for several days and you might not realize that you have a serious injury like a fracture.

Dr. Ojeyemi and Dr. Roh work together to ensure you get the hand pain relief you need. They perform a comprehensive physical exam and request any imaging tests like X-rays to properly diagnose you and start treating you right away.
