We rely on our hands to perform many of our tasks and duties on a daily basis. The optimal function of our wrists and hands is vital for fine motor strength, manipulation, and coordination in order to perform at a high level.

The wrist is surrounded by many structures crossing over from the forearm into the hand. Anatomically, these include tendons, connective tissue (fascia), ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. There are also 8 carpal bones about the wrist which can develop degenerative changes leading to arthritis or the development of cysts. Wrist and hand pain can be a manifestation of dysfunction involving one or more of these structures. 

Pain at the wrist and hand can also be misleading in that the pain source can actually be somewhere outside the region completely. Examples include a pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy), elbow, or forearm regions, or referred pain from a degenerated or inflamed tendon or ligament, to name a few. A thorough history of symptoms is very helpful to help determine the likely diagnosis and development of an effective treatment plan for wrist and hand pain.
