Wrist pain can be the result of a condition that has transpired over time or from overuse injuries like tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis), carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis, or as the result of an injury from an accidental fall or recent sports injury, such as a fracture or sprain.
In some circumstances, and if not identified early on, conditions such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel may create extreme bone, joint, and tendon discomfort, making wrist surgery a possible treatment option to relieving your wrist pain.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of wrist pain, it may be time to see a wrist doctor before your symptoms worsen:
- Increased joint pain, thumb pain, and tingling or numbness in the hand and forearm
- Swelling or significant bruising in the wrist, around the joint, or over the forearm
- Inability to carry, open, or twist objects
- Difficulty straightening your wrist
