Hand Pain, Hand Therapy and Physiotherapy Singapore
What is hand pain?
Pain in our hands may include any kind of
discomfort in the tissues or joints of the hand or fingers. These pain
may be described as throbbing, aching, increased warmth, tingling,
soreness, or stiffness. Burning or prickling sensations in the hand or
fingers, often called pins and needles, are paresthesias. Paresthesias
are often due to temporary or permanent damage or pressure on the nerves
that carry sensation messages from the hand and fingers to the spinal
hand is made up of nerves, bones, blood vessels, muscles, and skin.
Muscles provide motion, and tendons anchor your hand muscles to the
bones. Nerves control sensation and movement of the hand and fingers,
and blood vessels ensure continuous blood circulation to and from the
tips of the fingers through the hand and arm.
Hand joints, such as
the knuckles, are the areas where bones meet. Joints are complicated
structures and consist of cartilage, ligaments that hold bones together,
bursas (fluid-filled sacs that help cushion the joint), and synovial
membranes and fluid, which lubricate the joints. Any of these structures
in the hand or joints can become injured, irritated, inflamed and
painful in response to a variety of mild to serious diseases, disorders
Common causes of painful or achy include injury or
trauma, such as a boxer’s fracture of the hand, or from repetitive use,
such as long periods of keyboarding, which can lead to tenosynovitis and
carpal tunnel syndrome. Arthritis is another very common cause of hand
pain. More serious conditions, such as diabetes and peripheral
neuropathy, can also cause pain or a burning sensation in your hand and
Because painful hands can be a sign of a serious condition,
such as infection or fracture, you should contact your medical
professional about your symptoms.
Seek prompt medical care if you have
unexplained, persistent or recurrent hand pain. Seek immediate medical
care (call 911) if your hands have been exposed to freezing temperatures
and have changed color or lost feeling, or if you have severe pain, a serious burn, a deformity, or uncontrolled bleeding. Other
serious symptoms include a high fever with swelling, redness, warmth of
the hand, or red streaks up the arm.
