Hand/Finger Arthritis and Osteoarthritis Kennesaw, GA

Hand/Finger Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

There are 29 different bones in the hands, with many of them converging at joints in the fingers and thumbs. Arthritis, or inflammation of the joints, is common in the fingers and hands, causing chronic pain and limiting mobility. There is not a cure for rheumatoid or osteoarthritis, but there are treatments that can relieve inflammation for decreased pain and improved joint function. Our pain experts at Medici Spine & Pain can create a treatment plan to help manage hand and finger arthritis pain to improve the quality of life for our patients.

Causes and Symptoms of Finger/Thumb Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. When the cartilage that protects the bones deteriorates, joint movement can cause friction and inflammation. Injuries, aging and other factors increase the risk of arthritis. The joints become stiff and painful, limiting movement. In the hand and fingers, arthritis is most common in the joint at the base of the thumb and in the middle and top joints of the fingers. Thumb and finger arthritis make it difficult to grip or pinch, limiting the ability to open containers, write or make precise movements with the hand.

Pain Relief for Hand Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is a progressive and degenerative disease. Symptoms become worse over time. A slight stiffness and dull ache in the fingers and thumb can become worse over time. Controlling inflammation and reducing cartilage deterioration can help slow down degeneration and improve symptoms. Treatments can include physical therapy, hand massage, medication management and injection therapy. Our pain doctors at Medici Spine & Pain can create a comprehensive treatment plan for patients with hand arthritis to give them relief.

You do not need to live with the pain of arthritis. Come see us at Medici Spine & Pain to begin treatment to control arthritis pain and improve your hand function. We have clinics in the greater Atlanta area for arthritis pain management.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
