Don’t Ignore Your Hand and Wrist Health.
Hand and wrist conditions are the second-most common work-related injury in the U.S., behind back problems. Most are caused by repetitive stress, not trauma. Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger occur more frequently than you may think. Degenerative conditions, such as arthritis of the hands, affect about half of all women and one-quarter of all men by the time they are in their 80s.
