Treating Painful Hands

By 08stoneking0807 | In Blog | on November 19, 2015

Whether hand pain, stiffness, and swelling are caused by osteoarthritis (worn cartilage), tendinitis (inflammation of the tissue that attaches muscles to bones), or nerve problems (such as pressure exerted on the median nerve in the wrist or the ulnar nerve near the elbow), there are non-surgical solutions. To begin with, heat can be used to loosen hand stiffness, and the application of cold to the affected area helps pain that results from activity (such as sports). In addition, the physical therapist can focus on affected muscles and tendons. Treatment will likely involve guiding the patient through exercises designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles, making them more capable of absorbing the stress on hand joints that cause pain.
