Wrist Pain Q&A

What causes wrist pain?

Acute wrist pain is often the result of sprains or strains due to repetitive stress or overuse of your muscles. However, if you have persistent wrist pain that lasts for longer than six weeks, it may be due to an underlying condition like:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Tendon tears
  • Nerve compression
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome

You may also have chronic pain that radiates into your wrist from trigger finger. In this condition, inflammation in the tendons of the finger causes stiffness and makes it difficult for you to straighten the affected finger completely.

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation with the team at Premier Orthopedics if you have chronic wrist pain that isn’t getting better with over-the-counter medications and home care.

How is wrist pain diagnosed?

To pinpoint the root cause of your wrist pain, the physicians at Premier Orthopedics review your medical history, your lifestyle, and the location of your pain and other symptoms. Your provider also physically examines your wrist to identify areas of swelling or other abnormalities.

You may need X-rays or other imaging tests to confirm issues like nerve compression or fracture. Once your provider understands the nature of your condition, they customize a treatment plan to ease your pain and restore function in your wrist and arm.

What treatments are available for wrist pain?

If conservative therapies, like medication and physical therapy, isn’t enough to relieve chronic wrist pain, your Premier Orthopedics provider may recommend surgery.

The experienced surgeons offer several types of surgery that can address conditions affecting your wrist. Surgeries are available to repair:

  • Tendon tears
  • Trigger finger
  • Ligament damage
  • Nerve compression (in cubital and carpal tunnel syndrome)

The Premier Orthopedics team also offers reconstruction surgery to repair damaged structures in your wrist.

What can I expect during surgery for wrist pain?

All wrist surgeries are arthroscopic. This minimally invasive surgical technique requires only small incisions to make necessary repairs. Your surgeon inserts a scope through the incision. The scope has an attached camera that sends images of your inner wrist to a monitor. These images help your provider operate with a high level of precision without causing trauma to the surrounding tissue.

You can also receive comprehensive physical therapy services at Premier Orthopedics after surgery to restore your range of motion and rebuild the muscles that support your wrist joint.
