icon-anatomy-doctorAbout your hand

Your hands are one of the most delicate and complex structures of your body, comprising of bones, muscles, joints, tendons, blood vessels and connective tissues that seamlessly interact to allow you to point, clutch, grab and twist.

The major bones of the hands include the phalanges (small bones of the finger) and metacarpal bones (long bones of the hand) with ligaments holding the bones together at each joint. The carpal bones are the eight bones at the base of the hand making up the wrist.

Connective tissue and muscles provide your hand with structure and support its movement. Given the complexity and heavy usage, your hands are easy to injure and susceptible to chronic pain from overuse.

icon-symptoms-doctorCommon causes of hand pain

The three main causes of hand pain are an injury, a medical condition or chronic overuse.

The most common reason for hand pain is overuse. Your hands are used all day, every day and as you age, arthritis or osteoarthritis can begin to develop, resulting in chronic pain.

The bones, ligaments and tendons of your hand are also susceptible to injury from a forceful blow or fall, resulting in extreme pain, swelling and bruising. Hand fractures and ligament tears happen frequently to individuals who partake in physical recreational activities.

To be certain of the reason for your hand pain, contact the orthopedic doctors and sports medicine experts at Westchester Sport and Spine for a specific diagnosis of your hand pain.
