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.
