RSD Hand Injury
Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
When nerves malfunction, an RSD hand injury can result, causing swelling, burning or aching pain. Problems with sympathetic nerve activity following an injury or trauma are commonly identified as being responsible for this condition. The syndrome can occur in the hands, fingers or other extremities. The intermittent or constant pain is often severe in relation to the injury that led to it, such as a sprain. RSD can also result from a nerve injury, surgery or significant trauma, with sufferers experiencing:
- Swelling in the affected area or entire hand
- Changes in skin color, temperature and sweating
- Limited hand function
- Abnormal hair and fingernail growth
Physical and occupational therapy for the hand is often beneficial to reducing discomfort and improving mobility.
