Treating Hand Injuries or Hand Swelling

How to treat hand or wrist injuries

There are many types of injuries that can affect your hands and wrists. Impact injuries are considered acute and can cause sudden pain. These include sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, and tendons or ligament injuries. These conditions require prompt treatment for the best recovery. 

Chronic hand conditions can result from repetitive motions and overuse. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinosis, and De Quervain’s tenosynovitis are caused by overuse damage to the nerves and tendons in the hand. 

Hand swelling

When hands swell, it can be uncomfortable, especially when it comes with hand pain. Hand swelling is often caused by fluid retention, arthritis, or even heat. While most cases of hand swelling will recover on their own, we recommend getting your hand swelling checked by one of our medical providers to rule out an underlying illness or injury.
