The Causes Wrist Or Hand Pain

We use our wrists and hands a lot so when they hurt it can make life very difficult. Some of the things that cause pain here are

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome where the nerve supplying the thumb and first finger gets irritated as it passes through the wrist, it can be an overuse injury or because the tunnel where the nerve travels becomes narrowed.
  • Wrist pain where the small bones of the wrist don’t move freely, and the wrist can feel stuck or stiff.
  • Arthritis of the wrist, hand or thumb joints
  • Tenosynovitis, which is pain on the side of the wrist just above the thumb, is often an overuse injury
  • Dupuytren’s contracture, a thickening and shortening of the connective tissue on the palm of the hand. This is hereditary and can range from very mild to severe. Although there is no cure, there are many things we can do to reduce pain and discomfort.

We can treat many aches and pains in this area by working on the muscles, tendons, bones and joints.

Treatments may also involve…

  • Taping,
  • Acupuncture,
  • Ultrasound
  • Laser therapy

We also look at how you can make lifestyle changes to prevent the hand or wrist pain from returning.
