Our Clinical Team work in our specialist rehabilitation clinic with hand pain and hand function in Cambridge, with hand pain management treatment and rehabilitation therapy, for hand and associated wrist pain, and other arm pain conditions. Working with a vast range of physical capabilities, allows us to have very positive contact with such pain symptom sufferers. This is why we provide some of the most effective Cambridge treatments and Sports Injury Clinical care.

In fact, Hand pain (including hand muscle pain, tendon pain, or similar pain syndromes and muscle strains) and other common musculoskeletal disorders and their burdens, are most likely underestimated. The ‘physical and personal impact’ of musculoskeletal illnesses are believed to generate some of the highest costs to society, by threatening ‘efforts to support healthy ageing’. Hand pain seems to have large effects on disability levels and quality of life.
For hand pain suffers, the most cost effective therapy options includes manual therapies and rehabilitation exercise therapy, to improve physical function.

Diagnosis

Some of the most commonly ‘diagnosed’ issues leading to an episode (acute), or multiple episodes (chronic), of hand pain, with or without ‘swelling’ (filling of the joints of the hand and capsule or fluid around the joint area) are:-

Joint subluxation, Joint Dislocation, Nerve Damage, De Quervain’s Tendinitis, Referral pain, Metacarpal dysfunction, Muscle cramp, Inter, Ligament sprain, Capsular sprain, First metacarpal joint, Mallet finger, Proximal interphalangeal joint sprain, Overuse of the hand, Overuse of the finger, Interossei strain, Collateral ligament sprain, Volar plate injury, Lumbrical muscle strain, Muscular trigger point, thumb hypermobility, finger hypermobility….The list goes on!

The quality of some of these diagnosis concepts, and the actual correlation to your pain, are even more fascinating!

How This May Affect People

When this doesn’t go well, it often leads to a very dissatisfying outcome. This can manifest itself as: deconditioning, disability development, depression, loss of confidence in yourself and your body, which ultimately often leads to a dependency on pain altering medications, and poorer physical health.

So, what are we to do? Are we to:- be immobile?, be mobile?, be active?, or minimally active?, train into pain (‘no pain no gain’)?, or train avoiding pain?, stretch the hand and fingers?, or no stretching of the knuckles?, knuckle cracking and cracking finger?, or no cracking?, use medication management?, topical or oral?, use massage?, use mobilisation?, Osteopathy or chiropractic or physiotherapy?, use prescriptive exercise?, regular treatments or minimal treatments?, have imaging or not to have imaging?, surgery?, should we focus on structure or function?, or is it just age?!!!
