Painful, numb or tingling fingers......underlying causes and and possible solutions
Updated: Jun 4, 2018
Many people suffer from pain in the hands.
Often there are a number of underlying causes which can include:
An Office Job or a very Physically Active Job (possibly combined with improper ergonomics).
An event that aggravated the pain. This can be an current or previous injury or a sudden stressful and/or physically active period (like a move of residence).
Nutrition (sensitivities to gluten or milk can cause pain in the hands for some people).
A pinched nerve.
Sometimes pain in the fingers is accompanied by pain in the shoulders, elbows or wrist.
A Manual Osteopath can be very effective in relieving pain in hands/fingers by:
Mobilizing the pinched nerve. The increased Range of Motion eases the pain in the fingers.
Giving advise on ergonomics (setup of office) .
Pain, numbness or tingling in the fingers is often related to posture and therefore an Osteopathy Treatment involves treating the entire body.
