You rely heavily on your hands to perform routine tasks on a daily basis. From the tips of your fingers to the base of your palms, to the wrists and up into your arms, there are numerous bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons that work together to provide a wide range of motion and functionality. The sheer frequency with which you use your hands makes them more prone to injury – it also means that when you develop a painful condition or sustain an injury impacting one or more hands, getting treatment is crucial to restoring function and maintaining your everyday routine.
There’s a wide range of possible causes that can contribute to hand pain and hand-related problems. No matter what the cause of your hand pain, a consultation at Mirza Orthopedics is the first step to determining what’s causing this discomfort. We are dedicated to getting you back to your active life with better results and less downtime by using both nonsurgical and advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgeries.

What are the common causes of hand pain?
Hand pain and hand-related problems may result from a number of possible causes.
Potential causes of hand pain may include:
- Hand fractures, including finger fractures
- Locking fingers (trigger finger)
- Flexor tendon injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
- Arthritis of the hand
- Hand sprains and strains
- Nerve injuries
Some hand-related conditions or injuries may not produce painful symptoms, but they can effectively limit your range of motion and hand function. One such hand condition is called Dupuytren’s contracture, which can cause the fingers to take on a curled or bent position.
There are many things that can contribute to hand problems and create hand pain. It’s critical that you seek an evaluation from an experienced orthopedic hand specialist to get to the bottom of your particular symptoms and learn about your treatment options.
