Hand therapy!: The causes of hand joint pain are multifactorial. For aches and pains related to arthritis, hand therapy can be beneficial, usually with some combination of splinting and range of motion exercises. Don't overlook the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications to help with generalized hand pain.
