Hand Arthritis Treatment in Phoenix

If you’re experiencing limited mobility, swelling, pain, and/or tenderness in your hands and fingers, you should see a hand arthritis specialist. Treating the condition early on can greatly improve the issue before it has a long-term effect on the functionality of your hands. 

What is finger arthritis?

Finger and hand arthritis is characterized by pain and stiffness (especially in the morning), tenderness, loss of hand function, and in more severe cases, pain even when the hands are at rest. If you think you may have finger or hand arthritis and you’re in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, or the nearby areas, our specialists at Regency can diagnose and treat you. We want to help keep your hands and fingers moving. 

What causes finger and hand arthritis?

When the cartilage that protects our joint surfaces begins to break down due to age or excessive repetitive movements from jobs, sports, or hobbies, the protection starts to disappear and the joints begin to rub together upon movement. This can cause pain that can vary from a dull ache to stabbing throbs. 

Who is most at risk for hand arthritis?

About 1 in 4 adults have arthritis, and finger and hand arthritis most commonly afflicts women during middle age. It can also affect men, but typically for males, the condition occurs later. Smoking also increases the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, which can cause arthritis in the fingers and hands.

How is finger arthritis treated?

Finger and hand arthritis can be treated with non-surgical methods before surgery is considered. Non-surgical treatment options include measuring your activity, lifestyle changes, splints and/or gloves, physical therapy and exercises, anti-inflammatory medication, and/or steroid injections. If none of these treatments help the condition to improve, surgery may be recommended. 

Finding an experienced specialist

The tasks our hands do during any given day are countless, and they are an invaluable part of our lives. This is why it’s absolutely important to treat arthritis before it gets out of control — and why selecting the right medical professional is critical.

Not only should you choose a specialist who focuses on the hands; you should also ensure that they are experienced and will offer you with every option available. 

When it comes to finger and hand arthritis, treatment should only be performed by a qualified hand surgeon who has been trained to understand the complexities of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, nerves, skin, joints, and blood vessels of the hands, and who has plenty of experience in this area. At Regency Specialties, we are extremely proud to have the best hand arthritis specialists in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, and the surrounding areas.
