With the many uses that the hand and wrist have in our lives, it should be no surprise that the hand is the second most commonplace on the body (besides the knee), where osteoarthritis is more likely to develop.
The hand consists of 27 bones, and the wrist has eight bones that seem to be in constant motion throughout the day, which makes injuries to the hand or wrist easy to acquire. As people age, the ligaments in hand and wrists will naturally wear away, presenting problems for most people over 40 years old. Consequently, as the hand’s ligaments, bones, and muscles become weaker with age, tears and other injuries will become more prevalent. Age also presents further increased stiffness, pain, and deformity in the hand and wrist.
With age, wrist and hand pain may be attributed to arthritis, which may have developed in the hand or fingers. Arthritis in hand and fingers are prevalent conditions that can affect people of various ages compared to arthritis in larger joints. Also, injuries to hands and fingers are common among athletes. These conditions and injuries can have a massive impact on everyday activities.
