Re: Pain in the HAND!.
Yes, an ortho can be just fine, if he/she will look at this possibility with you.
It would not be appropriate, in my opinion, to recommend exercises - that is, treatment - when the diagnosis is still not known. I think it is important to first know what is wrong, and then decide on the best way to treat it. I mentioned the ergonomic issue simply because it is simple, you had defined your long hours at the computer as possibly relevant, and it doesn't involve a formal treatment program. I think your best interests are served by first trying to know what specifically is wrong. Sometimes ill-advised treatments may make the problem worse.
