Nowadays, wrist pain is a common disorder. The wrist joint plays an important role to perform the basic activities of daily life, from writing to texting. This pain can even hamper a person’s quality of life.
SYMPTOMS OF WRIST PAIN:
The symptoms of wrist pain can be different depending upon its cause. Some people may have dull pain while the others may have sharp one.
There may be other symptoms also except pain: –
- Symptoms of an injury like wrist sprain can be swelling or bruising.
- When the pain is due to carpal tunnel syndrome, the symptoms can be numbness, weakness and tingling.
Some people may have the following symptom: –
- Trouble in gripping objects: Grasping or holding the objects may be difficult or uncomfortable.
- Stiffness: Stiffness in the wrist or the fingers can also be one of the symptoms.
- A clicking sound while moving the wrists: This can be more problematic after the long periods of rest.
With the time, these symptoms may become worse. At first, the pain might only occur while doing activities but with time it can occur even at the position of rest. The numbness can also reach to a point when a person cannot feel heat or cold and may also drop things.
The repetitive use of ligaments or tendons surrounding a human’s wrist could result in the pinching of a nerve or inflammation around the wrist joint. These two symptoms are known as carpal tunnel or wrist tendonitis.
Wrist tendonitis is known as tenosynovitis and is characterized by the inflammation and irritation of tendons surrounding the wrist joint. The tendons of wrist cross each other and the bone. When those tendons thicken and constrict from overuse, it makes their movement difficult and painful and many times the result is tendonitis.
The treatment for both overuse injuries are almost same. First, the most conservative treatment options are attempted, but if those prove unsuccessful then the surgical options are considered.
The following are the both conservative and treatment options for these conditions: –
Conservative Treatment options are:
- Cortisone Injections
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Wrist braces
Surgical Treatment options are:
- Carpal tunnel release
- Endoscopic carpal tunnel release (using an instrument with a small camera to view the inside of the wrist)
- Removal of inflamed tissue (tendonitis)
