Arthritis is a degenerative condition that affects the joints of the hand, wrist or even the entire body. It is the most common form of osteoarthritis and is caused by the wear and tear of joint cartilage. This condition may affect people of all ages, and therefore, is considered a common problem. If your hands have become severely degraded due to arthritis, you must undergo surgery. Reconstructive surgery could help in removing the damaged tissue and cartilage, thus restoring pain- free functions. Wrist and Hand Arthritis Wrist and Hand Arthritis http:.au/

People whose lifestyle and activities cause an overuse of the wrist and exert excess pressure on the hands and wrists are prone to carpal tunnel syndrome. The condition causes inflammation and pressure in the nerve within the carpal tunnel of the wrist. The normal symptoms of these conditions are chronic pain, numbness and weakness of hand movement. Treating such a condition by surgery would reduce the pressure on the median nerve. The process of surgery cuts the ligament that is present at the top of the tunnel, increasing the tunnel's size and relieving the pressure. Carpal T unnel S yndrome http:.au/

Fracture is the most common injury for your hands and wrists. The distal radius bone which extends into the wrist is one of the most frequently broken bones in the body. Broken wrists could be effectively treated with non-surgical methods such as casts and braces. If the bone fragments break the skin surface and get exposed, surgery is essential. Consulting an expert like Dr. David Graham for your condition is very important. Hand injuries and conditions are very complicated and must be seriously acknowledged by the patient. These are the some of the most common conditions when your hand requires surgery. Ignoring your hand injuries could be very harmful, which is why you must consult the best hand and wrist surgeons .
