Hand & Wrist Pain
How we Help

Wrist Sprain

Please watch this video to help you understand why the wrist can be sprained, which often involves trauma – for example, falling onto outstretched hand. When the ligaments supporting the small bones and joints of the hand get strained there is often pain on movement and swelling. Here taping / supports can be helpful as well and anti-inflammatory medication. Fractures of course should be ruled out, at whatever age, if there is a lot of pain and immobility.

Hand pain can be caused by disease or injury affecting any of the structures in the hand, including the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, blood vessels, or connective tissues.

Hand pain is one feature of joint inflammation (arthritis) that may be felt in the hand. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the two most common types of arthritis in the hand.

Repetitive motion injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, can cause pain in the wrist and hand. Tumours of the structures in the hand are a very rare cause of hand or finger pain. Certain conditions such as diabetes can cause damage to the nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, or tingling of the arms and legs. This phenomenon, known as peripheral neuropathy, can also sometimes cause hand pain.

DeQuervain’s disease is a swelling and inflammation of the tendon around the thumb, causing pain in the thumb and lower arm. Trauma or injury to any of the structures in the hand is another common cause of hand pain.

If your problem is due to simple overuse or tension in the joints and muscles then osteopathic manipulation of the joints of the hand and wrist can be very beneficial in sorting out some of these symptoms where there is no underlying disease. Also the use of taping and support systems while the joints and ligaments are healing is also important.

Sometimes pain in the hand can be due to being referred from the neck and so nothing to do with the hand or wrist proper. A working diagnosis can be made for your problem by the osteopath.
