Hand & Wrist Pain Q & A

What causes hand and wrist pain?

Hand and wrist pain encompasses uncomfortable sensations in your hand or wrist, which is the joint that connects your lower forearm bone to your hand. You might have hand and wrist pain because of an injury, age-related wear, congenital hand differences, or disease.

Treatment for hand and wrist pain with the experts at Medicus Spine & Joint can provide long-lasting relief.

What does hand and wrist pain feel like?

Hand and wrist pain may appear as the following:

  • Sharp pain
  • Dull or aching discomfort
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Warmth
  • Burning
  • Bruising
  • Decreased range of motion

The pain could be mild, moderate, or severe and crippling in some cases. It could come and go or linger. Visit Medicus Spine & Joint if your pain starts suddenly (like after an accident), is severe, or doesn’t go away on its own.

How is hand and wrist pain diagnosed?

To find out what’s causing your discomfort, your Medicus Spine & Joint providers discuss your medical history and symptoms with you. They examine your hands and wrists to look for signs of disease and injury. 

Medicus Spine & Joint may recommend blood tests, X-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, CT, or other imaging procedures. You could need nerve conduction tests as well.

What are some treatments for hand and wrist pain?

Depending on the cause of your pain and how severe it is, Medicus Spine & Joint may recommend any combination of the following:

Immobilization

Wearing a splint, brace, or cast immobilizes your hand and wrist to reduce the risk of future injuries and maximize healing.

Home remedies

Using cold or hot packs and resting your hand and wrist can speed up your healing after injury.

Medication management

Taking over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help you manage mild-to-moderate hand and wrist pain.
