Arthritis is one of the most common conditions that affects the normal function of the hands. It is a degenerative condition that hinders the functionality of the joints in the hand and can cause progressive stiffness and pain in one or both hands.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis, but there are a number of treatments, medications, injections, and surgical procedures that can help to reduce and maintain the symptoms of arthritis.
Milder cases can be treated with the use of hand splints and anti-inflammatory medication. More severe cases may require the use of steroid injections. If the problem progresses further, surgical options may need to be discussed with a qualified professional.
