Hand Arthritis Can Affect Normal Function

By January 24, 2013

Normal hand function is essential to just about everything we do. We don't tend to think about how the bones, joints, muscles, and other structures of the hand work together to permit the movement, coordination and strength we tend to take for granted -- until something goes wrong.

Hand arthritis is among the conditions that can affect normal hand function. Hand arthritis is painful. It also is commonly associated with joint swelling, stiffness, and sometimes hand deformities. Hand arthritis can restrict range of motion and affect what we would consider normal use of the hand. Learn more about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment in Hand Arthritis - An Overview.
