Dealing with Arthritis
05 Apr 2015 Dealing with Arthritis
The hand and wrist have many small joints that work together to produce motion. As we age, the protective surface of our bones, called cartilage, begins to wear out. As it wears out, this causes bone to glide on bone during motion and creates pain, stiffness and many other discomforts.
Arthritis may occur in various areas of the hand and wrist. If this goes untreated, bones can lose their normal shape which causes more pain and limits motion of your joints.
