Hand Pain Q & A

What causes hand pain?

Lingering pain in one or both of your hands can stem from a wide variety of issues. For example, if you type on a keyboard all day at work or school, you can develop overuse conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Hand pain can also stem from:

  • Tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Trigger finger
  • Blood infections
  • Nerve compression

You’re also more likely to suffer from hand pain if you have diabetes because you can develop nerve issues (neuropathy) throughout your extremities due to blood sugar fluctuations.

When should I see a doctor for hand pain?

Your hands are your lifeline to everything you do throughout the day. You should schedule an evaluation at Neuro Pain Consultants as soon as you feel any pain, aching, or discomfort. After all, a seemingly minor issue, such as early tendinitis, can quickly progress and worsen without early medical intervention. It’s especially important to see a pain specialist if you experience:

  • Hand weakness
  • Warmth or redness
  • Prickly or pulsating pain
  • Difficulty gripping objects
  • Limited ability to write
  • Pain that keeps you up at night
  • Decreased ability to perform daily tasks

The team at Neuro Pain Consultants use digital in-office X-rays or ultrasound imaging to help determine the source of your hand pain and design your treatment plan right away.

How is hand pain treated?

Your hand pain treatment plan at Neuro Pain Consultants is likely going to include several different types of therapies designed to relieve acute pain, while also promoting healing and inflammation relief. Hand pain treatment plans can include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Bracing or splinting
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

If you have severe hand trauma, such as a bone fracture or tendon rupture, or if you’re not responding to conservative treatments, it might be time to consider hand surgery. With a team of board-certified physicians available at Neuro Pain Consultants, you can feel confident that you’re going to get the pain relief you need and return to full hand function.
