The joints and nerves of the hand are susceptible to issues that may produce chronic pain, and the discomfort can diminish a person’s quality of life and capacity to follow primary treatment recommendations, such as physical therapy. At Texas Pain Institute, we offer interventional pain management services for residents of Fort Worth, Denton, Southlake, and the nearby areas of Texas who live with chronic hand pain.
What is Chronic Hand Pain?
Chronic hand pain is a type of discomfort that is long-term and significantly reduces the ability to use your hands. Arthritis is a chronic pain condition that involves the joints, and chronic pain may also be related to inflammation around the nerves of the wrist and hand.
Do I Have Chronic Hand Pain?
The most common symptoms of chronic hand pain are:
- Inability to use the hand
- Disfigured fingers due to compensating for the pain
- Sharp, shooting pains when performing certain tasks
- Dull aching
- Pain that radiates into the fingers or wrist
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Hand Pain?
Working with Texas Pain Institute to resolve your chronic pain helps you focus on physical therapy and other treatments that address the underlying cause of your pain. We may recommend services that help with inflammation or decrease the level of pain signals that are sent by the nerves.
How is Hand Pain Treated?
- Pharmaceuticals that may be used in conjunction with or instead of your current medications
- Injections that contain medications to numb the affected area and reduce inflammation
- Nerve blocks that stop the nerves from sending constant pain signals to the brain
What Should I Expect After Treatment for Hand Pain?
Many of our treatment modalities provide immediate relief from chronic pain, while others may take a few days or weeks to work. We will explain what to expect from your interventional pain management treatments at the time of your consultation. Some patients only require one treatment, while others require additional treatments.
