          Take-Away Points of the Presentation

          1. Conservative treatment is the mainstay of treatment for most arthritic conditions of the hand.

          2. Corticosteroid injections can be both diagnostic and therapeutic in cases of tendonopathy of the upper extremity with the exception of lateral epicondylitis.

          3. Ulnar nerve compression should be managed aggressively with early referral to a hand surgeon to prevent permanent disability.
