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.
