Understanding Hand Pain Causes
Hand conditions may be congenital (present at birth), a work related injury or overuse caused by repetitive activity and aging. Hand pain that is not a result of an injury is most commonly caused by joint inflammation also known as arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are two of the most common types of arthritis affecting the hand. However, other conditions such as diabetes can cause damage to the nerves in the hand resulting in pain, numbness or tingling of the arms and legs.
