Wrist Pain

Wrist Pain

Wrist pain is a common condition that can be caused by a variety of factors, including sudden injury, overuse, or underlying medical conditions. The wrist is a complex joint that is made up of several bones, ligaments, and tendons, which work together to provide support and mobility to the hand. When any of these structures are affected, it can lead to pain and limited function in the wrist.

At NJ Sports Spine & Wellness we understand that wrist pain can be a frustrating and debilitating condition that can impact your daily activities. Whether it’s caused by a sudden injury or a chronic condition, wrist pain can greatly affect your quality of life 

  • Manual therapy: our therapists use a variety of manual techniques to help alleviate pain and improve wrist range of motion. This may include massage, joint mobilization, and soft tissue mobilization.
  • Strengthening exercises: our therapists will develop an exercise program that is designed to strengthen the muscles and improve wrist stability. This may include resistance training, stretching, and range of motion exercises.
  • Ergonomic assessments: we’ll evaluate your work environment and daily activities to identify any factors that may be contributing to your wrist pain. We’ll provide you with guidance on how to adjust your workspace and improve your posture to help prevent future pain.
  • Modalities: we offer a range of modalities to help relieve pain and promote healing. This may include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and hot/cold therapy.
  • Patient education: we believe in empowering our patients with knowledge about their condition and the tools they need to manage it. We’ll provide you with education on proper body mechanics, self-care techniques, and strategies for preventing future pain.

Causes Of Wrist Pain

Wrist pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Repetitive strain injury: this occurs when the same motion is repeated over and over, causing strain on the muscles and tendons in the wrist.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: this is a common condition that occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and wrist.
  • Arthritis: arthritis is a chronic condition that can affect any joint in the body, including the wrist. It can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in the wrist.
  • Fractures and sprains: sudden injuries, such as a fall or impact to the wrist, can result in fractures and sprains that cause pain and limited function in the wrist.
  • Tendonitis: this occurs when the tendons in the wrist become inflamed, causing pain and limited mobility.

Treatment For Wrist Pain

Treatment for wrist pain depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. Here are some common treatment options:

  • Occupational therapy: our skilled occupational therapists can help improve your wrists’ daily performance and functionality so that you can get back to doing the things you love.
  • Physical therapy: our physical therapist can develop a personalized exercise program that is designed to improve wrist strength and mobility.
  • Medication: pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, may be recommended to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Brace or splint: wearing a brace or splint can help support the wrist and reduce strain on the affected structures.
  • Surgery: in severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair damaged structures in the wrist.

Wrist pain can be a frustrating and debilitating condition, but with proper treatment and prevention, you can manage and even overcome it. If you’re experiencing wrist pain, don’t let it hold you back. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and start your journey towards pain-free living.

I’ve been coming in for a few years on and off to see the chiropractors for management of neck and back pain…The maintenance appointments have been greatly helping me manage my back pain and I can tell that my mobility has greatly improved. My back doesn’t hurt nearly as much when walking like it used too. I’ve also come here to rehab my shoulder, which feels tremendous…This is a wonderful clinic and you are making a mistake if you go somewhere else.
