When to Receive Hand Surgery
Injuries happen frequently and can occur in the workplace, at home or during physical activity. Your hands can easily bruise, sprain or break if pushed too hard and can also become prone to stress if they make repetitive motions.
With continued strain, your hands may lose their strength and flexibility, resulting in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis and Dupuytren’s contracture as well as trigger finger, tendon and nerve damage, a loss of circulation and basal joint arthritis.
It’s possible for these condition to occur due to a sudden accident or injury or from stress over time. Eventually, they can impair your functionality during your everyday life. No matter the cause, your pain warrants surgery, which will help you regain a sense of freedom and normalcy.
