    Hand Conditions Directory

    Hand conditions are typically part of a larger syndrome or disease -- such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes -- but they can stand alone. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the result of a pinched nerve near the wrist that causes a loss of feeling in the hand, Raynaud's disease is the constriction of blood vessels in the hand, and Dupuytren's disease is a thickening of the skin on the palm that eventually cuts off hand mobility. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about various hand conditions, how they are diagnosed, how they are treated, and much more.
