hand pain treatment in Charlotte and Fort Mill


Hand pain is a condition that affects many people worldwide. The pain can start gradually or suddenly depending on the nature and cause of the pain. Hand pain usually occurs as a result of arthritis, gamekeeper’s thumb, trigger finger, nerve injury, and more. Typical hand pain usually resolves on its own after a brief period of rest or over-the-counter medications. However, certain cases of hand pain require the intervention of a pain specialist to accurately diagnose and treat your condition.

We recommend that you seek immediate medical attention if your pain refuses to go away. We provide pain management in Charlotte and Fort Mill for hand pain using non-surgical, non-opioid treatments.

How it Works?

Regenerative Medicine for Hand Pain

We provide treatment for hand pain at Advanced Sports & Spine using regenerative medicine in Charlotte and Fort Mill. Regenerative medicine includes approaches that harness a body’s self-healing properties to repair, rebuild, and regenerate damaged tissues, tendons, and muscles that support the hand.

These regenerative procedures include stem cell therapy and PRP therapy. These procedures are able to heal hand pain and restore functionality to injured hands without the need for surgery. Additionally, these procedures make use of the patient’s cells, so there’s no risk of adverse events and unexpected reactions. The procedures are safe and effective and can get you back to the things you love as quickly as possible.

Regenerative Medicine - PRP Therapy for the Hand

PRP therapy is a regenerative procedure that utilizes platelet concentrates from the patient’s blood to facilitate the immediate healing and repair of injured hands. The goal of procedures involving PRP therapy is to initiate the rapid deployment of growth and healing factors in the body to the injured hand to quickly initiate a natural repair. Hence, pain, swelling, and inflammation are reduced immediately. With PRP therapy, recovery from several hand conditions, such as osteoarthritis of the hand and wrists, swelling, gamekeeper’s thumb,  and trigger finger, is fast and long-lasting.

Stem Cell Therapy for Hand Pain

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medicine procedure that harnesses the body’s healing properties by injecting specialized cells from the patient’s body. Hence, health is restored to injured tissues, muscles, and tendons of the hand through a natural initiation of regenerative repair of these tissues. Stem cell therapy is also effective for the treatment of several hand conditions such as trigger finger, osteoarthritis of the hand, ganglion cysts, and more.

Stem cell therapy is an innovative and revolutionary treatment procedure, and patients can benefit from it in the following ways:

  • Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure. Hence, patients are protected from the risk of highly invasive surgery which is often associated with complications such as bleeding at the surgery site, infections, and nerve damage.
  • Stem cell therapy treats pain by addressing the source of the problem rather than treating the symptoms as seen with traditional medications and other forms of therapies.
  • Stem cell therapy uses the patient’s cells to treat hand pain. Hence, therapy is safe and poses no risks of unexpected adverse reactions.

Trigger point injections in Charlotte and Fort Mill
Trigger Finger Injections

Trigger finger injections provide a safe and effective way to treat hand pain caused by trigger fingers. A trigger finger is a painful hand condition that causes one or more of your fingers or thumb to lock when you try to bend them. Typical symptoms usually include painful clicking or snapping when you bend or straighten the finger. Sometimes you may experience stiffness in your finger when you wake up in the morning, or even a locked finger that you find difficult to straighten.

Trigger finger injections provide a means to administer corticosteroid injections to target the trigger finger and relieve your pain. Trigger finger injections are very useful for the treatment of trigger fingers that do not respond to rest or over-the-counter medications.

Peripheral joint injections in Charlotte and Fort Mill
Peripheral Joint Injections

A peripheral joint injection is a minimally invasive procedure for delivering pain-numbing medications and a steroid to injured tissues and muscles of the hand. Typical injections commonly used for peripheral joint injections include cortisone and other corticosteroids which are delivered to the joints of the finger, wrists, and hands for targeted pain relief. Peripheral joint injections are effective for relieving hand pain because they target the source of the pain directly rather than manage symptoms with oral medications. Additionally, these injections have the longest duration and greatest potency in producing the desired anti-inflammatory effect and pain relief that will produce a fast and effective recovery from hand pain.

Peripheral nerve blocks in Charlotte and Fort Mill
Peripheral Nerve Block

A peripheral nerve block is a special type of regional anesthesia that is administered to target specific nerves or bundles of nerves that are implicated in hand pain. These nerve bundles function to process the pain signals, so a peripheral nerve block works to block the transmission of pain signals by the nerve bundles that innervate pain transmission in the hand. Compared to typical local anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks last longer with fewer side effects. Peripheral nerve blocks are commonly used to treat the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. These procedures have a high success rate and contribute to faster recovery in patients.

treatment for wrist injuries in Charlotte and Fort Mill

Hand pain can result from injury, overuse, or repetitive stress. Pain may also be caused by inflammation of the joints and muscles in the hand or due to common conditions such as

  • Gamekeeper’s thumb
  • Trigger finger
  • Nerve Injury

Most cases of hand pain usually resolve on their own after a short period of rest or over-the-counter medications. However, hand pain that lingers for weeks requires appropriate medical assessment.

Hand pain is caused by several factors that may manifest from mild to severe cases of hand pain. Depending on the cause of the pain and level of discomfort, mild cases can resolve with rest or the use of over-the-counter medications. However, more serious cases may require intervention by pain specialists. It is difficult to tell if a hand condition will resolve on its own or not, so it is advisable to consult with a pain specialist to evaluate your symptoms so you can know the next steps.


It is usually difficult to tell if hand pain is serious or not at the initial onset. However, hand pain that lingers and refuses to go away after rest or interventions with over-the-counter pain relief or ice or heat therapy may be severe. If you feel this way, it is the right time to contact a pain specialist to evaluate your symptoms, determine the source, and design a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.


The hand is connected to the wrist which is a mobile joint in the human body. This makes it prone to wear, tear, and injuries. A great way to keep your hands healthy is to avoid overstressing your hands and fingers and protecting them from accidents and falls.
