The common causes of pain include sudden injuries, repetitive stress, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It can also be caused by bone fractures, nerve damage, tendinitis, and ganglion cysts.
A healthcare professional will typically diagnose hand and wrist pain by performing a physical examination and may use imaging tests such as X-rays, MRIs, or ultrasounds to identify the underlying cause.
Some self-care techniques include resting the affected hand and wrist, applying ice packs or heat pads, performing gentle stretching exercises or using over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
You should see a doctor if the pain persists or gets worse, and is not relieved by self-care or home remedies, or if you experience other symptoms like numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected area.
Treatment options include rest and immobilisation, medications, physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, occupational therapy, and surgery (in severe cases).
Yes, physical therapy can be helpful for reducing hand and wrist pain. A physical therapist can develop a customised exercise program that targets specific areas of weakness or stiffness and can improve range of motion, strength, and flexibility in the hand and wrist.
Surgery is not usually a first-line treatment, but it may be necessary in cases of fractures, severe arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome that do not respond to conservative treatments.
The recovery time for hand and wrist surgery varies depending on the type and severity of the surgery performed, but may take several weeks or months of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
This pain can be prevented by avoiding activities that put stress on the area, maintaining good posture, taking frequent breaks from repetitive activities, using proper equipment and tools, and practising good ergonomics.
Some ergonomic strategies include maintaining good posture, taking frequent breaks, using a neutral hand position when typing or using a mouse, adjusting the height of your desk and chair, and using ergonomically designed equipment and tools.
