Hand and Wrist Pain

Hand & Wrist Pain

Hand and wrist pain can be caused by anything from a trapped nerve to an underlying disease such as arthritis. Pain can sometimes be relieved by gentle manual treatment depending on the cause.

Common causes of hand or wrist pain are:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Ganglion
  • Fractures

X-rays, scans and other tests are sometimes required to make a diagnosis and your practitioner may refer to your GP or a specialist for any additional investigations or treatment.
