Types of Hand Pain


Early Trauma Catches Up


As the sliding gate caught my finger and wedged it into the latch with a loud thud, I knew it would be trouble. My mind teleported me to my 18-year-old self considering Lloyd’s of London coverage of my artistic hands. The mental pendulum then swung to the future when this injury develops into osteoarthritis. I am now catching up to the future.

Yes, it hurt to slam my finger within a metal gate! Though it did not break the skin, range of motion was reduced to 30 percent of normal. After a few years, I happily regained 90 percent functionality. Now the finger is a little wider than others and mobility is diminishing again.
