One of the most frequent causes of pain in the hands are caused by those traumatic events that generate fracture in the wrists or fingers of the hands, ligament injuries or tendon injuries, but in this article we are going to talk about the causes of pain in the hands due to tendon inflammation, joint wear, problems around the nerves of the hand, the appearance of masses in the wrist area, among others.

Trigger Finger can manifest itself, many times, by pain in the fingers. This pain occurs when the pulley at the base of the fingers thickens, compressing the tendon, thus making mobility difficult.

The pain from a Contracture or Dupurytren’s Disease is caused by the appearance of a nodule or lump in the palm of the hand, which over time progresses to what is known as a cord, which causes loss of mobility of the fingers, being most common the loss of mobility in the fourth toe.
