We use our hands all the time to grab and hold things. As I am typing this blog, I use my hands and fingers. However, people sometimes may have difficulty using their hands. For example, you suddenly cannot straighten your fingers, and when you force yourself to do so, you usually hear a “pop” sound.
What has happened to your fingers?
Common Conditions Affecting the Hands and Fingers
One of the most common causes of hand immobility is tenosynovitis. When you have this condition, you may experience mild to severe pain when turning your wrist or bending your fingers and thumbs. You may also notice swelling at the joints.
Tenosynovitis is the inflammation of the synovial membrane, the protective sheath of the tendon. When you bend your hands and fingers for too long or too often, the tendon rubs against the membrane and becomes swollen and inflamed. Sometimes, infections can cause tenosynovitis too.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis. It usually causes pain, stiffness, and swelling at the joints, including finger joints. It may also lead to bone spurs, extra bits of bone forming around the affected joints.
In the joints, cartilage works as a cushion between bones. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage wears down, often due to overuse of certain joints. Blue-collar, especially heavy workers, often have this disease on their hands because they need to grab and lift heavy objects repetitively.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease. Its symptoms are very similar to OA’s, but the cause is completely different.
It damages the tissue in the joints and may affect any joint in your body, including hand joints. When it does, the synovial membrane will become inflamed and cause pain and swelling, and you cannot straighten your fingers.
