Finger Nerve Damage Treatment and Diagnosis

Read Blog

Your fingers are invaluable to your ability to function each day. They perform critical tasks like tying your shoes, grasping doorknobs, handling eating utensils, and dozens of other things that you might take for granted. When you suffer nerve damage in your fingers, you quickly realize how important they are to your everyday life. You can regain your function and continue your daily routine without issues by learning what finger nerve damage is and how you can treat yours at Arora Hand Surgery.

As its name implies, finger nerve damage is damage to the nerves in your fingers. This condition can be caused by any number of factors like:

  • Injuries
  • Repetitive stress
  • Diseases like diabetes
  • Poor circulation

Finger nerve damage can affect people of any age, but it especially targets adults who suffer from illnesses like diabetes or work jobs that require them to perform repetitive tasks. However, it is one of the easier nerve conditions to diagnose and treat as long as it is addressed early before it results in permanent damage to the fingers.

Diagnosis

We may use a series of tests to determine if patients suffer from nerve damage in the fingers. We may diagnose you with this condition if you suffer from symptoms like:

  • Pain anywhere in your fingers
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Burning
  • Visible deformities like drooping
  • Limited motion
  • Inability to use fingers properly or at all
  • Underlying disease like diabetes or poor blood circulation

If you have any of these symptoms, you may be diagnosed and treated for finger nerve damage.

Finger Nerve Damage Treatment

Nerve damage in the fingers responds well to a variety of treatment options. Depending on the severity and cause of your nerve damage, you may be advised to undergo a number of treatments. It is recommended that you follow the advice of our doctor if you want long-lasting or permanent relief from your finger nerve damage.

Dr. Aroras office from my first call to schedule my appointment was friendly. Walking in the first day, I felt like I was in a nice atmosphere. Dr. Arora was EXCELLENT in taking great care of my hand injury. He was gentle and very understanding to the concerns I had about my hand. His expertise was admirable and I would recommend anyone with an injury to their hand to his office to be under his care. Because of him, I have healed faster than expected and will make an 100% recovery! Thank you Dr.

I first thought I was going to have to have painful injections or surgery, but Dr. Arora suggested physical therapy may do the trick. I was doubtful, but I agreed to do it. Now, my pain is gone, and with the help of an ergonomic keyboard at work to keep my hands in the correct position, I am virtually pain free. The therapy strengthened my wrists and shoulders, and built more flexibility into my wrists.
