Hand, Wrist & Elbow Pain/Arthritis
Wrist and elbow pain can range from inconvenient and uncomfortable to extreme pain and lack of mobility. Full recovery can take months and require medical attention, depending on the severity of the condition.
Repetitive movement, overuse, stress, and trauma to the tendons near the elbow joint and wrist can overload these tissues. The area where the tendon anchors to the bone is particularly susceptible to injury.
Activities and situations contributing to wrist and elbow pain include:
- Ongoing overloading of muscles and joints
- Repetitive motions that strain or overuse the tendons
- Lack of strength
- Lack of flexibility
- Poor technique with sports like tennis and golf
Signs and Symptoms
- Pain, particularly when opening fingers or making a fist
- Weakness or a weak grip
- Dull ache, even when at rest
Seek treatment options for wrist and elbow pain if you feel you have symptoms matching the above described if it does not immediately resolve.
