Hand pain is quite a common problem. The hand is built of many bones, joints, ligaments and muscles, so it is no surprise that so many people feel soreness in the hand. Sometimes aching can come and go quickly, while other times hand pain can linger for longer than expected, affecting your day to day living. We use our hands for many of our everyday activities, so when a problem occurs it can be debilitating as well as extremely frustrating.
The fingers, thumbs, and knuckles are all considered part of the hand. Sometimes it can be hard to determine where exactly pain in the hand is coming from as it can radiate throughout the fingers and even sometimes back up towards the wrist and forearm.
- Pain in the fingers that is dull, stabbing, sharp, or electrical in nature
- Numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand or fingers
- Pain or stiffness when using the fingers to pinch, or open something (such as a jar, a doorknob, or turning a key)
- Reduced ability to grip or hold objects
Discomfort felt in the joints of the finger can often be due to osteoarthritis. The thumb is the most common location of osteoarthritis in the hand. However, osteoarthritis can also occur at the base of the finger, the knuckle finger joint, or the joint closest to the end of the finger.

Internal Scar Tissue is a thick, tough, fibrous material that the body creates to quickly repair a damaged tissue such as muscles and tendons. It can build up in any area of the body where there has been internal and/or external damage. Internal Scar tissue is a very common cause of recurring or chronic pain after sport or work injuries, after surgery and it also often intermixes with Osteoarthritis.Visit our Internal Scar Tissue Page to learn more.
Trigger finger happens when the tendon sheath becomes inflamed and/or swollen. The tendon sheath acts as a tunnel that protects the tendon of the finger. Normally, the tendon slides in and out of the sheath as the finger bends and straightens; however, a tendon of a trigger finger will get stuck when moving out of the sheath while bending the finger.
Trigger finger can be very sore and painful in the base of the finger. It is typically caused by a finger injury or repetitive strain. It can also be caused by arthritis or gout.
Removes Internal Scar Tissue: Inhibits and removes Internal Scar Tissue that naturally forms from injury or repetitive strain, causing discomfort and a delay in healing.
Regenerates Muscle Tissue: Transfers light energy to the affected cells of muscle, regenerating and strengthening damaged muscle tissue to prevent future injury.
Activates Cartilage Production: Promotes the natural cartilage growth process by increasing the production of cellular energy (ATP).
Accelerates Bone Repair: Simulates the bone cells to replicate and produce new healthy bone tissue.
Nerve Regeneration: Helps damaged nerves to recover by growing the neural network and repairing vital insulation around the nerve.
Stimulates Blood Flow: Increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients required for healing of the affected cells.
