For instance, if you’re working in the kitchen or typing on a keyboard you’ll witness sharp pain.Many people also lose the power in their hands.Over time this weakness can make it difficult to perform the regular everyday tasks like opening toothpaste. What makes this disease especially unpleasant is the fact that when it hits the joints of the hands because it results in numbness and pain. We strongly feel that natural home treatments are the way to go. There are several specially designed hand exercises that can improve the hand’s flexibility, extend their range of motion and ease arthritis pain. They’re very simple and noninvasive. Soaking your hands in warm water or dipping them in warm paraffin wax is a great way to reduce pain before you perform the exercises. You can even try performing some of the exercises with your hands submerged in warm water or while you’re in a heated pool. This way you’re gently exercising your joints and muscles. The buoyancy of the water supports and lessens stress on the joints, enabling you to move your hands more easily. Water can also act as resistance to help build muscle strength. Make A Fist A really easy exercise you can do just about anywhere. It’s best to use it when you’re feeling stiffness in this area.This exercise is fairly easy to do. Start by keeping your right hand straight. Then, turn your hand into a fist and place your thumb out of the fist. Note that you shouldn’t be squeezing your hand – be relaxed. Open your hand slowly until each of your fingers is straight. Perform 10 reps. After that, repeat the procedure with your left hand. Thumb Bend Start by holding your hand straight up and bendingyour thumb in the direction of the palm. Stretch it as much as you can and try to reach the pinky finger with the thumb. If you can’t do it, don’t stress yourself out. Just stretch it as much as you can. Stay in that position for a couple of seconds and place the thumb in its initial position in the end. 10 repetitions with both hands will be enough. Finger Bands Using the same position as the first exercise, straighten your left hand. Try gently bending your thumb in the direction of your palm. Remain in this position for a few seconds.Bring your thumb in the initial position. Then, bend your index finger in the same direction, wait for a few seconds before straightening it. Repeat this with every finger. Once you’re finished with your left hand, do the same thing with your right hand. Make An O Start by straightening your left hand. Then, direct all your fingers inward so they can touch, making an “O”. Remain in this position for several seconds, before straightening your fingers. Do at least three reps, using both hands. This exercise is perfect in the moments your fingers and hand feel stiff or achy. Table Bend Start with your left hand, putting your pinky close to the table. Point your thumb up and bend the rest of your fingers making an L formation.Stay in this position for a couple of seconds, before straightening your fingers. Do 10 reps with both hands. Finger Lift Start by putting left hand on a table with its palm down,keeping it flattened. Try lifting each finger off the table carefully starting with your thumb. Keep the finger in the same position for two seconds, before lowering it down. Perform the same procedure with every finger from the left and right hand.

Hand Pain ,Fingers pain - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes possible conditions that may cause pain within the hand and fingers. Hand pain Common hand problems Carpal tunnel syndrome •Pressure on the median nerve causing pain over the wrist and fingers. •Compression of the median nerve at the wrist. •Can lead to numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand and fingers. •These symptoms are found in the thumb, index, middle and half of the ring fingers. •Can lead to atrophy of the hand and finger muscles. Cubital tunnel syndrome •Pain at the small finger and half of the ring finger. •Pain originates at the medial elbow. •Increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow where the nerve passes under the medial epicondyle or “funny bone”. •The connective tissue over the nerve will sometimes thicken, causing the patient to have numbness and tingling in the little finger and ulnar half of the ring finger. •Ulnar nerve compression below the elbow that can cause a “claw hand”. Osteoarthritis •Pain typically affecting the interphalangeal joints of the fingers and thumb. •Degenerative joint disease causing gradual deterioration of the cartilage forming the joints of the hand. Rheumatoid arthritis •Pain located at the knuckles of the fingers and the wrist bone on the side of the small finger. •Inflammation or irritation causing pain, swelling, weakness and over time loss of the normal shape and alignment of joints. •The joints between the hand and fingers well and move upward ( dorsal subluxation) •Tendons over the joints slip and cause the fingers to bend towards the little finger (ulnar drift). Flexor tendonitis (trigger finger) •Pain may be located in the palm at the base of the finger. •Condition that affects the tendons of the fingers causing the finger to remain in the bent position when attempting to straighten it. •The flexor tendon becomes thick and irritated as it slides through the tendon pulley causing a thickened nodule and triggering of the tendon. De Quervain’s syndrome •Pain is located over the radial side of the wrist. •Pain and swelling over the thumb side of the wrist that may cause difficulty in gripping with the thumb. •Inflammation of the sheath or tunnel that surrounds the two tendons that control movement of the thumb. Basal thumb joint arthritis •Pain is located at the base of the thumb (CMC joint). •Arthritis of the basal joint or thumb CMC (carpometacarpal joint). •Basal joint arthritis results in pain with restricted movement of the thumb across the palm. It is hard to differentiate between De Quervain’s syndrome and basal thumb joint arthritis. Finklestein’s test ( De Quervain’s) and Grind test (basal thumb arthritis). Finklestein’s test •The test is conducted by having the patient make a fist with the fingers closed over the thumb and the wrist is bent towards the little finger. •The hand is pulled so that the involved tendons are stretched, causing sharp, local pain if injury and inflammation is present. Grind test •By axial loading, pushing and rotating the thumb metacarpal bone, grinding may be felt within the joint. Flexor tenosynovitis (kanavel’s sign) •Pain is located in the finger at the flexor tendon sheath. Cardinal signs 1-Uniform swelling of the entire finger 2-The finger is flexed 3-Intense pain when attempting to straighten the finger. occurs early 4-Tenderness along the course of the tendon sheath.

Hand Arthritis Stretches & Exercises - Ask Doctor Jo
Hand arthritis is pretty common, and it can be very debilitating. Since the joints in the hand are small, you don’t have to do much to relieve the pain, you just have to keep them moving. These stretches and exercises should help your hand arthritis feel better. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at: http://www.askdoctorjo.com/hand-arthritis You can set your arm on a table or flat surface to relax it, or if you don’t have anything available, you can prop your elbow up on your knee or thigh. Start off with a fist and warm up your wrist. With your palm side facing down, move your fist up and down at the wrist for flexion and extension. Now move it side to side in a radial and ulnar deviation movement. Ten in each direction should be fine since this is just to warm up the muscles. Next, you will keep your fingers straight, and take your thumb and touch each finger in the middle of your hand, and then spread them all back apart. You can do three times back and forth. Now bend your fingers at the joint closest to your wrist, still keeping the fingers as straight as you can. Bend down and back up gliding the tendons up and down. Now move to the next joint down the fingers. This time open your fingers, and then curl the top part of your fingers down for the stretch. Finally, go to the last joint farthest down the finger. You might have to hold onto the near part of your finger so just the last joint moves. Just start off with ten of each of these with a continuous movement. For the last stretch, start with all your fingers close together, and then spread them out as far as you can, just like you are fanning them out. You don’t have to do a lot of these exercises since these are small joints. 2-3 minutes, 2-3 times a day should be plenty.

Live Surgery: Ganglion Cyst: Flexor Tendon Sheath (Finger)
www.hand411.com www.MPSurgery.com Ganglions have been recognized since the time of Hippocrates, who suggested that they represent mucoid flesh, thus differentiating them from a ganglion of neural origin. Although much has been written about this common hand tumor, little attention has been given to flexor tendon sheath ganglions, which are often referred to as volar retinacular cysts or “sesamoid” or “pearl-seed” ganglia. The ganglion is the most common soft tissue tumor of the hand, representing approximately 50–70% of all upper extremity masses. Ganglions are usually solitary and occur in specific locations in the hand and wrist. The most common ganglion locations are the dorsal and volar wrist regions, respectively. The third most common type is a ganglion of the digital flexor tendon sheath, which has been classically described as arising from the first annular (A1) pulley. The long finger was most commonly involved, followed by the index finger, ring finger, small finger, and thumb. About half of ganglions originate from the A1 pulley.

Common Conditions Of The Thumb - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Educational video describing injury conditions of the thumb.. Many different conditions can affect the normal function of the thumb. It is important to recognize the most common conditions with appropriate treatment can be given. 1-Stenosing tenosynovitis (trigger thumb). One of the most common abnormalities of the hand associated with painful triggering or locking of the thumb. When the patient tries to straighten the thumb, the nodule jams beneath the pulley proximally. 2-Extensor pollicis longus tendon The EPL tendon is responsible for the thumb’s distal interphalangeal joint. When a rupture occurs, the patient will experience loss of thumb extension and this typically occurs due to fracture of the distal radius. 3-Entrapment of the posterior interosseous branch of the radial nerve The posterior interosseous nerve is a continuation from the radial nerve and runs through the forearm. The nerve passes through the supinator muscle of the forearm, found on the outside of the elbow. The nerve becomes entrapped at the proximal edge of the supinator. Injury of the nerve may also be associated with fractures or dislocations of the radial head or the elbow joint. The patient will be able to perform wrist extension, but no finger extension. Patient with a proximal radial nerve injury will lose wrist extension and finger extension including the thumb. 4-Unable to do OK sign The anterior interosseous nerve branches from the median nerve just below the elbow and supplies the deep muscles on the front of the forearm. Typically there will be weakness of the long flexor muscle of the thumb (flexor pollicis longus) and the deep flexor muscles of the index and middle fingers. 5-Injury to the ulnar nerve (Froment’s sign) Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs due to compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. As a result of cubital tunnel syndrome, the patient is unable to cross or abduct the fingers. When pinching a piece of paper between the thumb and index finger, the thumb IP joint will flex if the adductor pollicis muscle is weak. 6-Rheumatoid arthritis of the thumb Inflammation or irritation causing pain, swelling, weakness and over time, loss of the normal shape and alignment of the joint. This deformity can lead to the loss of the ability to grip, grasp and pinch.

Pain and numbness in the left hand comes because of pressure on the nerves coming from upper limb.It is usually due to cervical disk prolapse.When disk tears and presses nerve,it pains where ever the nerve runs.If the prolapse is upper part of cervical then pain will be upper part of neck and back of the head.If it is lower part of cervical then pain will be in shoulders ,arm ,fore arm and hands .Some time numbness.Some times people confuse with cardiac pain.Cardiac pain happens only near left shoulder and chest part.If it is lower down the arm then it is not cardiac problem.
5 Top Reasons For Hand Pain
Related videos: Arhtritis Finger Pain https://youtu.be/7eLqKNKtyhM Transcript: 5 Top Reasons For Hand Pain I'm doing this video on reasons for hand pain because I've been living with it myself for the last few years. I've been to a specialist but I've also done a lot of reading on reliable websites like these, and I decided to share what I've learned with other people who are experiencing hand pain like I am. The biggest single reason for hand pain is arthritis. But arthritis comes in dozens of different forms. Three are most common among people who have discomfort that ranges from a dull ache to sharp, sudden, stabbing pain in their hands. 1. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the number one, most common cause. Pain occurs when cartilage between the joints in your hands break down, making it possible for bones to scrape against each other. 2. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is actually an autoimmune disorder, meaning that your body's defenses mistakenly attack your joints. RA causes joint damage, pain, swelling, inflammation, and loss of function. It can also cause unsightly deformities in the fingers. 3.Gout attacks the big toe most often, but it can affect any joint, anywhere in your body, including fingers and hands. It occurs when sharp, needle-like crystals build up in the joints. The crustals come from uric acid, which is a waste product that flows through your bloodstream. Besides various forms of arthritis, there are diseases and conditions that trigger hand pain. 4. Osteoporosis generally occurs with aging, as bone naturally lose mass. They become brittle, weak, and likely to break eassily. 5. Finally, there's carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is an opening in the bones of the wrist where a large nerve passes through on its way to the hands and fingers. Sometimes, usually with aging, this nerve is compressed, causing pain, weakness, and even numbness in the hand and wrist. Naturally, your doctor is your best source of information if you need to find out the reasons for your hand pain. Rely only on him or her to make an accurate diagnosis.

We use them every day in pretty much everything we do, so they get very tight and need a lot of work. To work on the hands, we have three yin meridians that run up the front of the arm, all the way through the palm and end in the palm, and then three yang meridians that run down the back of the hand all the way through the arm. So again, by working on the hand and actually working on the whole body, a very important principle in shiatsu, is that it is holistically based. We're going to open up the palm by placing my pinky in between her pinky and ring finger, and my other pinky in between her thumb. Then the rest of my hands just fan out right behind her wrist. I'm going to work with my thumbs and just stroke down from the wrist to the middle of the hand. This can be pretty firm pressure. I want to be really aware that I'm not working with tense shoulders, so I just release my shoulders and just let my thumbs trickle down to the center of the palm. Another great thing to do for the hands is to open up the space in between the thumb and the pointer. This is a webbing space and it can get very tight. Just using a squeezing action, I'm going to squeeze down from the base of that webbing, all the way to the end, and then slide. It can be very intense. And it's like I'm just tossing out any stale energy. It's a squeezing, slide, and then just sending it out. That really helps to release the whole arm. If anyone has wrist issues, it’s great for that as well. Another thing we have here is the side of that webbing. I'm going to thumb down, just using pressure in towards the hand, and then opening up the back of the wrist, just sliding from the wrist out, all of those little puzzle-like bones that make up the wrist, then flipping the palm over. It's a nice stretch here for the front, and again, just stroking upwards a little bit for the front of the wrist. Then just some circling, letting the hand... she's doing a great job of just completely releasing, so all those bones of the fingers and hands kind of soften. Extending through all of the bones of the arm, up to the hands. So, some great techniques for working on the hand, which not only helps to release the hand itself, but helps release all of the associated energy pathways that start or end within the hands and travel into the rest of the body.

Trigger Finger Surgery
http://www.handandwristinstitute.com/trigger-finger-surgery/ - Of all of the conditions that can affect the hand, trigger finger is among the most common. As with many conditions of the fingers, it is typically caused and exacerbated by repetitive activity such as typing or text messaging, although it is not limited to these activities alone. Trigger finger most commonly affects the ring finger, but it not uncommon in any of the digits of the hand, and it typified by a snapping of the finger, accompanied with pain. Trigger finger affects the flexor tendons, which control flexion of the finger; that is to say, they pull the fingertips into the hand towards the palm. These tendons can develop nodules, or knots, which then become stuck on the pulley bands that normally keep them in position against the finger bones. In particularly bad cases, the nodules can become so large that the tendon is unable to pass through the pulley at all, making it impossible to flex or extend the finger, depending on the position when it becomes stuck. Conservative treatment of trigger finger consists of cortisone injection, which can be an effective remedy in up to 50% of occurrences. Should this injection prove ineffective then surgery may be necessary. The procedure is a simple one, and only requires local anesthesia. A small incision is made in the affected finger(s), through which the pulley band upon which the knotted tendon is caught is sliced, freeing the tendon to return to its standard mobility. The wound is then closed and sewn shut with three to four stitches. Mobility returns to the finger almost immediately. A light dressing will be placed over the wound, and this must be kept dry for ten days, after which time the stitches are taken out by the doctor, and light activity may be resumed. By about four weeks, any tenderness at the scar site should resolve, and full function returns. It is not uncommon to see trigger finger occur in different digits of the same hand at different times, although recurrence is extremely unlikely in the same digit.

RockTape - Kinesiology Tape Instruction - Tape Glove (Hand)
Here we’ll detail the steps on applying RockTape Kinesiology Tape with an application that covers the hand. This can protect against tears and blisters during grip intensive movements.   Start with our standard 2 inch tape and measure from the base of the middle finger to just below the wrist. Fold at this measurement to double the length. For more coverage, measure a duplicate strip of the same length. Measure a final strip around the wrist, leaving about a half inch between the ends. Round the tape’s corners to avoid catching on gear or clothing. To create the finger hole, fold the longer strip in half. Then, cut a sliver off the fold leaving about a half inch from then end. The end result should look like an eye. Carefully tear the release paper at the hole, and slide the middle finger through. With the palm up and fingers spread, extend the wrist pointing the fingers down. As you pull the release paper away, work the tape so that it is flat at the base of the middle finger. Lay the end down over palm and wrist. Turn the hand over and flex the wrist, keeping the fingers spread. As you pull the release paper away, work the tape so that it is flat to the knuckle. Lay the end down over hand and wrist. Rub to activate the adhesive. Repeat for the index finger as needed. Tear the center of the final strip to expose the adhesive. Apply with slight stretch over the front-side of the wrist. Lay down the ends with no stretch, then rub to activate the adhesive. Thanks for watching!

wrist pain,causes and treatment  PART I. Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes Wrist Pain, Carpal Tunnel, anatomy of the Wrist . there are eight carpal bones of the wrist that fit into a shallow socket formed by the bones of the forearm. Carpal tunnel syndrome Pressure placed on the median nerve due to thickening of the transverse carpal ligament. Thenar atrophy is commonly associated with severe carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur during pregnancy since the swelling brought on by pregnancy may compress the median nerve in the hand, causing the fingers to feel numb. These symptoms typically go away after delivery of the baby. Common causes of CTS include: •Obesity •Hypothyroidism •Arthritis •Diabetes •Trauma •Repetitive work (typing, lifting) •Vibration Carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand and fingers. The numbness usually occurs at night because we tend to sleep with our wrists flexed. The Tinel’s test is used to determine symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. The test is considered positive if symptoms of tingling worsen while tapping on the median nerve at the wrist. The Phalen's maneuver is a diagnostic test performed to determine if the patient has carpal tunnel syndrome. The back of the hands are pressed together, compressing the nerve, which may cause symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Treatment includes •Anti-inflammatory medication •Splint •Injections •Carpal tunnel release: performed by cutting through the transverse carpal ligament. Carpal tunnel release allows the median nerve to pass freely through the tunnel to receive sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. This is similar to a tunnel being opened or widened so a large truck can pass through.

KT Tape: Thumb
Thumb pain usually presents as pain at the base of the thumb and wrist. A notable thumb pain condition includes De Quervain Syndrome, also known by many other names such as gamer's thumb, mother's wrist, and mommy thumb. This condition in particular is a degenerative (microscopic injury) condition of the sheath (extensor retinaculum) that surrounds the tendons passing over the thumb side of the wrist. These tendons control the motions of the thumb, most specifically the movement of thumb towards the wrist. When this sheath becomes injured or inflamed, the tendons become entrapped and cause pain during movement of the thumb. Thickening of the tendons from overuse or trauma will also cause problems when the tendons need to slide beneath the sheath. Women are considered at higher risk due to the sharper angles of the bones in the wrist, but the actual cause is somewhat unknown. Many believe overuse is the primary cause leading to inflammation. This hypothesis is backed up by noting that most patients with this pain are new mothers who repeatedly lift their growing babies. Symptoms are most often noted in both wrists and to the same degree of pain, indicating that more overuse activity causes more inflammation leading to pain. When these conditions are present, movement of the thumb is restrained and further perpetuates the inflammatory condition and may create swelling in more severe cases. Pain is noted during thumb and wrist motion along with thickening and hardening of the area at the base of the thumb. Difficulty gripping, tenderness at the base of the thumb, and swelling are common symptoms. Pain is usually slight to moderate, and extreme pain may be an indication of a more serious condition. Treatment of the pain is determined more by noting what has worked in the past rather than scientific data. KT Tape has been shown to provide support during motion of the thumb and wrist, and has markedly reduced pain in many subjects. KT Tape also increases circulation to reduce inflammation and speed the healing process. Corticosteroid injections are thought to be successful, but do need to be weighed against the negative side-effects of increased degenerative effects. Surgery has been well accepted and successful in almost all cases, but conservative therapies are highly preferred prior to making this leap. Ice after activity, rest, and avoidance of activities that incite pain are all important steps to avoid surgery. A focus on proper lifting mechanics will also help to avoid these symptoms in the future. For more resources, please visit the KT Tape website at www.kttape.com.

Examination Of The Hand, Tests - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes examination test of the hand. Adequate evaluation of the hand is necessary for the management of hand and wrist conditions or injury. Knowledge of certain specific tests will help the clinician to reach the correct diagnosis and provide adequate treatment. These are some of the most useful tests that are used frequently for evaluation of wrist and hand conditions. De Quervain's syndrome: inflammation of the sheath or tunnel that surrounds the two tendons that control movement of the thumb. Finklestein’s test: the patient makes a fist with the fingers closed over the thumb and the wrist is bent towards the little finger. The hand is pulled so that the involved tendon is stretched, causing a sharp, local pain if injury and inflammation are present. What is carpal tunnel syndrome? Pressure placed on the median nerve due to thickening of the transverse carpal ligament. Can lead to numbness, tingling or weakness of the hand and fingers. Tinel’s test: the tinel’s test is used to determine symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. The test is considered positive if symptoms of tingling worsen while tapping on the median nerve at the wrist. •Pahlen’s test: the Phalen’s maneuver is a diagnostic test performed to determine if the patient has CTS. The back of the hands are pressed together, compressing the nerve, which may cause symptoms of CTS. •Froment’s test: the Froment's test is used to test for palsy of the ulnar nerve which may occur with entrapment of the ulnar nerve within the cutibal tunnel. What is cubital tunnel syndrome? Occurs due to compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Froment’s test: when pinching a piece of paper between the thumb and index finger, the thumb IP joint will flex if the adductor pollicis muscle is weak due to ulnar nerve palsy. •The OK sign is used to check for paralysis of the anterior interosseous nerve due to entrapment or compression injury. This nerve is a branch of the median nerve that innervates the muscles of the deep group of the anterior compartment of the forearm. Patients with paralysis of the anterior interosseous nerve will unable to make the OK sign. •Wrist drop: condition of the hand and wrist that determines the presence of radial nerve injury. •The Allen's test: The examiner applies pressure with the thumbs occluding the ulnar and radial arteries. Patient is asked to make a fist. Patient is then asked to open the hand. When the examiner releases the ulnar artery, the patient;s ulnar artery will cause blood flow to the hand. What is basal thumb arthritis? Arthritis affecting the thumb joint . Grind test: by axial loading, pushing and rotating the thumb metacarpal bone, grinding may be felt within the joint. •Watson’s test: also called the scaphoid shift test, it is diagnostic test used to evaluate scaphoid stability. The examiner places a thumb over the patient’s scaphoid tuberosity which is the distal pole of the scaphoid on the volar surface. The other fingers of the examiner’s same hand are placed dorsally above the radius. The patient’s wrist is placed initially into an ulnar deviation and the examiner's other hand deviates the wrist radially and flexes it slightly. With pressure on the tuberosity of the scaphoid, the scaphoid is pushed dorsally out of the radial fossa. If there is instability of the scaphoid, the test will be positive and produce pain and a “clunk”. •Lumbrical plus finger: caused by laceration of the flexor digitorum profundus distal to the origin of the lumbricals. Lumbrical is tighter than FDP. Most common in the middle finger. With injury of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon, the patient is unable to maintain the grip when the examiner releases the finger. •Testing the integrity of the flexor tendon: keep the PIP of the finger extended and see if the patient can flex the DIP. Keep the other fingers extended and then see if the patient can flex the PIP joint of the involved finger. When multiple slips of the superficialis tendon are cut, identify the tendon properly. The superficial tendon of the long and ring fingers are volar at the wrist. •Bunnell test •Elson’s test: used to determine if the patient has a central slip tear before the deformity is present. •When holding a relaxed cascade, the fingers should normally point towards the region of the scaphoid. Malrotation of the finger will causes the affected finger to deviate from its normal rotational direction. Malrotation is especially important with finger metacarpal fractures.
