Your hand is made up of multiple small joints that all work together to perform movement. When hand arthritis occurs, simple activities and repetitive tasks such as typing on a keyboard, tying your shoe, gripping utensils, or fastening buttons become much more difficult. Arthritis is defined by inflammation of one or more of those joints. Hand arthritis wears away at the cartilage of the joints which is the cushioning material between the bones and can cause symptoms including joint pain, joint stiffness, a grinding feeling, swelling, warmth, and changes in your surrounding joints. Hand arthritis has many different causes including disease and trauma.
