Hand Injuries, Surgical Procedures, and Information

Hand pain and other problems are extremely common and affect many individuals. Numb fingers (i.e., ‘pins and needles’, etc) may be a sign of carpal tunnel syndrome. Joints in fingers that appear enlarged, swollen, or painful to move may be associated with arthritis. Trigger fingers are painful inflammatory conditions where fingers get stuck or locked during movement.
