The hand consists of 27 bones and the wrist has eight bones that seem to be in constant motion throughout the day, which makes injuries to the hand or wrist fairly easy to acquire. As people age, the ligaments in the hand and wrist will begin to naturally wear away, presenting problems for most people over 40 years old. Consequently, as the ligaments, bones, and muscles in the hand become weaker with age, tears and other injuries will become more prevalent with falls and trauma. Age also presents further situations of increased stiffness, pain, and deformity in the hand and wrist.
As people age, wrist and hand pain may be attributed to arthritis, which may have developed from arthritis in the hand and/ or thumb. Actually, arthritis in the hand and thumb are very common conditions that can affect people various ages when compared to people with arthritis in larger joints. Also, injuries to hands are very common among athletes.
