Common conditions of the hand and upper extremity
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on a nerve called the “median nerve” at the wrist by a band of tissue called the “transverse carpal ligament.” This band of tissue is thicker and tighter in some people than it is in others and when it becomes too thick or too tight it can put pressure on the median nerve.​​ Patients may experience numbness and tingling in their fingers and pain in the palm of the hand. Some people have a sensation of sand on their hands or a burning sensation. You may also experience weakness in the hand.

Trigger Finger

Trigger Finger is also known as Stenosing Tenosynovitis. It occurs when the tendons that help bend, or “flex”, a finger get inflamed or thickened leading to scar tissue build up surrounding the tendon. This causes the tendon to get stuck or “trigger” as it passes through smooth tunnel systems called “pulleys”. As a result, the finger can become painful and cause a locking or clicking sensation. Some people also report being unable to fully straighten the finger. 

Ganglion Cyst

A ganglion cyst is a lump or bump on the fingers, hand, or wrist. They form when irritation or inflammation of a tendon or joint causes a pouch of fluid to bulge out. Ganglion cysts are most commonly found on the back of the wrists, but they can be found anywhere on the hands or wrists. These cysts can sometimes increase or decrease in size and often cause pain or discomfort. 

Mallet Finger​

Mallet finger occurs when the tendon that helps straighten out the finger tip ruptures or breaks. This causes the finger tip to be in a “flexed” or bent position with an inability to straighten the finger tip. 

De Quervain's Tenosynovitis

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is an irritation and inflammation of the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. This often causes pain and difficulty with gripping and lifting. 

Dupuytren's Disease

Dupuytren’s Disease is also known as “Viking’s disease” and is common in people with northern European ancestry. This condition causes hard nodules and cords to form over the tendons of the hand and fingers underneath the skin. These can sometimes be tender and cause pain with gripping. Some may develop tight contractures of the hand and fingers, causing the fingers to be stuck in a bent or “flexed” position. The feet or genitals may also be involved with this condition.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is caused by either stretching or pressure of the ulnar nerve. This nerve is more commonly known as the “funny bone”, however the shocks and zings you feel from hitting your “funny bone” are actually from putting pressure on this nerve. Many patients with cubital tunnel syndrome experience numbness and tingling in the small finger and ring fingers and some people may also experience weakness in the hand. Often times, symptoms are first noticed when waking up in the morning.
