Hand problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis (tendonitis), and epicondylitis (tennis or golfer's elbow) are some of the most commonly occurring work-related injuries. A severe injury can impact job, leisure, and self-care function and cause debilitating pain. One in ten of us will be affected.
At Hand Health Resources you will find the ideas and tools necessary to prevent hand & arm pain or to help you recover from an injury.
As you browse the site, you will find information on injuries and injury prevention, ergonomics, exercise and personal wellness that you can implement immediately and at no cost. These are the pearls of wisdom collected over the years from clinical experience and client suggestions. Any equipment, product, or treatment recommendations made are those that have been tried and approved by clients recovering from hand injuries.
We are currently expanding our sections on traumatic and arthritic hand conditions. In the next few weeks, you will notice a new look with easier navigation that puts the information you need at your fingertips.
The internet provides a tremendous amount of information and misinformation. Our goal is to consolidate and provide quality information, product suggestions and links to helpful sites for those dealing with hand injuries. This information is not a substitute for professional medical care. Please do not use it as such.
