Addressing Hand Tendon Problems

If you suffer from hand tendon problems, it can get in the way of doing what you want to do in life. You may find yourself experiencing a lack of flexibility that makes it difficult to perform everyday tasks. A hand tendon problem could cause a visible change in the shape of your hand that makes you more self-conscious. Worst of all, it may cause you to experience chronic pain. If you have a problem that is affecting your hand tendon, Dr. Arora and his team could help you.

What are Your Options?

The first step is to diagnose the issues that you are experiencing with your hand tendons. Think of tendons like ropes that form connections between different muscles throughout your body. They run through your hands, connecting to the muscles in your fingers and your wrists. Problems with the tendons in your hands can cause a variety of issues in your life. You may find that you can’t bend your fingers properly and lack your usual flexibility. Your wrist may not bend easily either. This can make it difficult to hold on to objects, open objects, write, or do many activities that are a part of your daily routine.

One of the most common problems to affect the tendons in your hands is inflammation. Inflammation causes your tendons to become painful and swollen. Tenosynovitis is another type of inflammation that focuses on the sheath that encloses your tendons in your hands. If you overuse your hands, place strain on them, or experience some type of injury, you may experience this type of inflammation that also causes pain, swelling, and a lack of flexibility.

Once there is an understanding of why you are experiencing hand tendon problems, our team of professionals can find answers for you.
