What is Wrist Pain?

Wrist pain refers to discomfort, pain, or inflammation in the wrist joint, which connects the hand to the forearm. This condition can result from various causes, ranging from minor injuries to underlying medical conditions.

Greenbell Medical Clinic is experienced in addressing wrist pain through physical therapy. Our approach incorporates therapeutic exercises, joint mobilization, and ergonomic advice to reduce pain and enhance overall wrist function.

Understanding the Condition

  • Prevalence: Wrist pain is prevalent, especially among individuals engaged in repetitive activities. Prevalence rates vary based on age, occupation, and lifestyle factors.
  • Signs and Symptoms: Pain may be sharp or dull, and individuals may experience stiffness, swelling, or a clicking sensation in the wrist joint. Wrist pain can significantly impact daily activities.
  • Complication: Untreated wrist pain can lead to chronic issues, reduced hand function, and potential complications such as carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis.

Etiology and Risk Factors

  • Strains or Sprains: Overuse or sudden impact can lead to strains or sprains in the ligaments and tendons around the wrist, causing pain and swelling.
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries: Continuous, repetitive motions, such as typing on a keyboard or using a mouse for extended periods, can contribute to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, leading to wrist pain.
  • Fractures: A break or fracture in any of the bones in the wrist, including the radius or ulna, can cause significant pain and swelling.
  • Arthritis: Conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the joints, leading to inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the wrist.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist can result in pain, numbness, and tingling.
  • Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons around the wrist, often due to repetitive motions or overuse, can cause pain and discomfort.
  • Ganglion Cysts: Fluid-filled sacs that develop near the joints or tendons can lead to wrist pain.
  • Ligament Injuries: Tears or injuries to the ligaments that support the wrist joint can cause pain and instability.
  • De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis: Inflammation of the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist can result in pain, especially with thumb and wrist movement.
  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae (fluid-filled sacs that cushion joints) in the wrist can cause pain and swelling.
  • Nerve Compression: Pressure on nerves in the wrist, such as the ulnar or radial nerves, can lead to pain, numbness, and tingling.
  • Infections or Abscesses: Infections in the wrist joint or surrounding tissues can cause pain, swelling, and redness.
  • Gout: The accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints can lead to sudden and severe pain, including in the wrist.
  • Trauma or Injury: Falls, accidents, or direct impact on the wrist can result in bruising, swelling, and pain.
