Hand Injury

Hands and wrists are made of many different bones, joints and connective tissues like tendons, nerves, ligaments and blood vessels. Any injury to the hand can cause damage to these structures and result is pain, inflammation, bruising etc.

Hand injuries are generally caused due to jamming a finger, repetitive strain due to heavy lifting or playing sports, knocks and blows, or landing on the hands during a fall. Apart from these the most common types of hand injury are finger fractures and dislocations.

The course of treatment may vary depending on the intensity of the injury. For minor injuries, your doctor may suggest physical therapy, pain medication, application of ice packs. For severe injuries, post investigations, your doctor may suggest a cast or in some cases surgery.

Arthritis

Arthritis also known as joint inflammation is a broad umbrella term used to describe about 200+ conditions that affect joints and the tissues that surround the joint and connective tissues.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Gout, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia are other conditions related to arthritis.

These rheumatic conditions clinically present symptoms like pain, stiffness, inflammation in and around joints. Some forms of arthritis like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis can affect multiple organs. Arthritis is more common among people aged 65 and above. However, it can affect younger people, including children.

Since arthritis limits the person’s ability to perform everyday tasks to a great extent, the treatment aims to control pain, minimize damage to the joint, and improve overall quality of life. Your doctor may choose to treat you with medications, physiotherapy, provide splints or joint assistive aids. If the condition is severe, your surgeon may decide to opt for a joint replacement surgery.

Tendon Repair

Tendons are soft, band-like tissues that connect muscles to bone. When the muscles contract, tendons pull the bone causing the joints to move. If any damage occurs to the tendons, the movement may be limited. Tendon repairs are carried out through surgical intervention. It is normally done to treat a torn or damaged tendon.

The most commonly affected joints due to tendon injuries are elbows, knees, fingers, ankles and shoulder.

Tendon repairs are done by making small incisions in the skin over the damaged tendon.
