Common hand conditions

The hand is a complex structure of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that all work seamlessly together. They allow us to achieve a wide range of tasks without thinking – from gripping large objects to threading a small needle. There are numerous hand conditions that can interfere with these simple activities, often causing painful symptoms like swelling, tenderness and restricted movement. Most people will suffer from hand pain at some point in their lives, and there are many hand conditions that can be treated conservatively using pain relief, rest and rehabilitation exercises. If your hand condition is not improving, talk to a hand orthopaedic specialist for an accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment pathway.
