Today we are going to speak about Hand painful syndromes (- CTS and DeQuervain) If you feel pain of any kind, we have the first signal that something is wrong. A pain in the hand area shows that something is going on there, that there is a pathological, incipient or chronic process, more or less severe. Among the most common causes of the pain in the hand are nerve compressions. The most frequently we find the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Other common causes of pain located on the hand are the De Quervain’s disease and degenerative trapeziometacarpal arthritis. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be diagnosed quite easily because, among pain, it is associated with tingling and numbness in the fingers of the hand. De Quervain’s disease can be identified by having a specific pain located on the base of the thumb. This pain is exacerbated by the movement of the thumb. Often, the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and the De Quervain’s disease are misdiagnosed with rheumatic diseases. Therefore, these diseases should be clearly distinguished by a specialist in hand surgery and I strongly recommend that you come to the consultation if you have any symptoms. Both situations can be treated quickly and spectacularly.
