It is very difficult to imagine a life without hands or hands that has been deformed or has been contracted by a disease. Being one of the most necessary parts of our body, we should go through medication, or if it worsens go for a surgery, if the doctor suggests so. Hand surgery hospitals may seem to be not that expensive but if compare the prices of the international hospitals with India, you will find a vast difference.
Apart from fractures, our hands also get contracted by a lot of diseases, the most common being rheumatoid arthritis. It is painful, you won’t be able to move your fingers and gradually your hand will undergo a terrible reshaping.
Other diseases include:
Ganglia (swellings on hand, preferably at the back of the wrist or the front or on fingers, which contains jelly like fluids, not so painful but causes discomfort)
Swan-neck deformity (mostly caused by rheumatoid arthritis, as the middle joints straightens out, the base joint of the finger bends in but it does effect the thumb)
Boutonniere deformity (like swan-neck, it is also a deformity that in which the joint of the middle fingers bents in and the outermost finger joint is bent excessively outward. Other than rheumatoid arthritis, it is also caused by cuts, fractures, dislocations or osteoarthritis)
Osteoarthritis (overgrowth of bones in the middle and the outermost joints of the fingers causing swelling, pain and seldom formation of finger joints)
Dupuytren contracture (it is a common hereditary disorder in men and in patients who are diabetic, alcoholic and epileptic. The deformity involves a gradual tightening of the bands of the fibrous tissue inside the palms making the fingers curl that looks like a claw)
Trigger finger (one of the fingers becomes locked in bent position because of the inflammation of its tendons)
Carpal tunnel syndrome (a painful compression of the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel of the wrist)
Cubital tunnel syndrome (compression of ulnar nerve of the elbow)
Kienbock disease (it is the death of bone tissue due to impaired blood supply).
Infections of the hand include hand infection caused by bites, felon, herpetic whitlow, hand abscess and infection of tendon sheath.
