Find Out What’s Causing Numbness in Your Hands

February 11, 2020

The human hand has 27 bones that move in almost as many joints, making it one of the most flexible parts of the body. Such small bones and joints – and the amount of tasks we rely upon our hands to perform – also result in many aches, strains and breaks.

If you are experiencing numbness in one or both hands, Dr. Chris McCarthy, a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with the Hartford Healthcare Bone & Joint Institute, might have some relief for you.

Dr. McCarthy will offer the free talk called “Are Your Hands Numb?” on Tuesday, Feb. 18, from 5:30-7 p.m., at Gateway Medical Park, 305 Western Blvd., Suite C,  in Glastonbury.

The talk will address:

  • Possible causes for hand and arm numbness, including carpal tunnel, arthritis and other conditions.
  • Treatment options and associated recovery times.
  • When to consider surgery.

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session with Dr. McCarthy.
