Wrist/Hand Pain

Autoimmune maladies can present a daunting task in terms of their identification and treatment. Such disorders arise when the immune system erroneously assaults healthy cells within the body, which results in inflammation and the detriment of tissue and organs. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, and psoriatic arthritis.

RA is a persistent autoimmune disease that predominantly targets the joints. Its symptoms include agony, rigidity, and swelling within the joints, particularly those in the hands, wrists, and feet. RA can also prompt weariness, fever, and a loss of weight.

Lupus is yet another autoimmune malady that can afflict diverse bodily systems, including the skin, joints, and organs. Its symptoms may encompass a rash on the face, joint pain, weariness, and fever.

Psoriatic arthritis is a class of arthritis that can develop in certain individuals who have psoriasis, a skin disorder that causes red, scaly patches. Psoriatic arthritis symptoms may include joint pain, rigidity, and swelling, as well as nail alterations and weariness.

At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating autoimmune disorders.  We work in tandem with each patient to formulate an individualized treatment plan that caters to their specific requirements and objectives. Autoimmune issues can be difficult to manage, but with the right therapy and support, one can control their symptoms and improve their quality of life. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are committed to helping our patients with autoimmune disorders attain optimal health and well-being.

Welcome to Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center! Lets talk about the most common issues with wrist and hand pain. Wrist and hand pain can be a frustrating and debilitating condition that can interfere with daily activities. But don't worry, with the right treatment, you can find relief. The most common causes of wrist and hand pain:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist and hand. Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome may include wrist splints, medication, and in some cases, surgery.
  • Arthritis: Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints. The wrist and hand joints can be affected by different types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Treatment for arthritis may include medication, physical therapy, and joint injections.
  • Tendinitis: Tendinitis is a condition that occurs when the tendons, which connect the muscles to the bones, become inflamed. This can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the wrist and hand. Treatment for tendinitis may include rest, ice, physical therapy, and medication.
  • Trigger finger: Trigger finger is a condition that occurs when the finger becomes stuck in a bent position, making it difficult to straighten. This can cause pain and stiffness in the finger. Treatment for trigger finger may include medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery.
