 A Few Common Hand Problems
Hand Arthritis
Arthritis is a general word used to describe inflammation ("itis") of a joint ("arthr"). Of all joints in the human body, arthritis of the hand is one of the most common locations.
Hand Fracture
The hand skeleton is made up of many bones that form its supporting framework. This frame acts as a point of attachment for the muscles that make the wrist and fingers move. A fracture occurs when force is applied to a bone that is enough to break it.
