Often marked by overuse injuries, wrist and hand pain can arise in many different capacities, from injuries to the natural course of aging. With so many bones, connective tissues, tendons, blood vessels, muscles, and ligaments surrounding the wrist and hand, it is important to recognize symptoms early in order to address the injury or disease that is causing pain in these areas. Pain forming in the wrist and/or hand can indicate a wide range of medical issues, ranging significantly in severity.
Nevertheless, more serious issues such as disease, tumors, or injury can also cause this pain, typically requiring a much different medical approach to healing. Dependent upon the severity of the injury, medical professionals will create an action plan which addresses the pain and paves the way for recovery.
