Best Hand Doctor NYC
The hand is a very complex piece of anatomy, comprised of 26 bones, over 30 joints, roughly 20 muscles and over 40 ligaments and tendons. Because of how frequently we use our hands, they are susceptible not only to acute injury, but repetitive stress injuries.
Hand Pain Causes?
Hand pain must be correctly diagnosed, as pain can come from musculoskeletal problems like ligament strains or repetitive stress conditions, but can also come from neurological compression of nerves that originate in the spine, or possibly the elbow or wrist.
Often pain or tingling in the hand is actually originating in the neck, and may be indicative of a more serious problem, like a disc injury or arthritis. However, if the pain is truly originating from the hand itself, it is often very responsive to treatments as all structures are so shallow and accessible.
