Hand Sprains and Pain
Pain in the region of the hand and wrist can come from problems in the joints or surrounding muscle and tendons. Pain in the hand or wrist region, pain with movement, weakness, numbness, stiffness, loss of motion or swelling, can all be related to hand and wrist pathology. Depending on the location and nature of the discomfort, as well as aggravating and relieving factors can help establish the diagnosis. Problems such as tendonitis, ligament tearing, and muscle strains, arthritis, and nerve compression are common in the hand and wrist.
Examination by the doctor and testing such as X-rays or MRI or nerve testing, may used to identify the problems. Treatments can include medications, therapy, injections, and even surgery.
