Our hands are the tools that link us to the objects and people that enrich our lives every day. As with any tool, our hands can be overused and strained to the point of injury. Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI’s) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and De Quervain’s Tendinitis can make us less efficient at work, or worse, prevent us from doing daily tasks all together.
In a time of continuous e-mailing, clicking, and texting, we are all at risk of developing a hand injury. It is important to understand the signs of an oncoming sign of RSI to take action before it impacts our lives. The first step to prevention is understanding the prevalence of hand disabilities and the early signs of their development. Maintaining healthy hands can be as a simple as a few daily hand exercises, but if you believe there may already be an issue, performing a Finkelstein Test can help you decide if it is time to reach out to a specialist and discuss the future of your hands.
