INTRODUCTION

With more hours and use of computers and mobile phones, the incidence of wrist and hand pain increased threefold. This pain is the result of improper functioning and abuse of ligaments and muscles in the wrist and hand. At Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, we offer non-surgical options for the effective and safe management of wrist and hand pain. You will receive an individual treatment plan that aims to return you to the level of activity and lifestyle you are used to without having to deal with the pain. We will show you how to become free from pain, correct the cause, and eliminate symptoms.

We provide a very specific, individualized, and comprehensive approach that will determine the exact cause of the pain and treat it as such.

SYMPTONS/CAUSES

Pain in the wrist and hand can be very painful, sharp, and sore. Repeatedly, patients also have neurological symptoms that cause numbness and tingling in the hand and/or wrist area. At Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, we believe that wrist and hand pain is caused by the lack of instability, pain, and discomfort in the region.

CAUSES

There are many different causes of wrist and hand pain. This may be due to a functional or structural disorder; for example, trauma, improper development, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, work posture, and arthritis. Other reasons include, among others:

  • Developmental dysfunctions
  • Developmental imbalance with muscles
  • Muscular strains
  • Ligamentous sprains
  • Poor ergonomics

DIAGNOSIS

At Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, the doctor will start a comprehensive study that will deal with the beginning, cause, duration, severity, vectors, establish significant tasks and functional tasks that cause wrist and hand pain. At this point, the cause of the pain will be determined; however, diagnostic ultrasonography or magnetic resonance imaging are also very accurate and preferred in determining the extent and extent of wrist and hand discomfort - they will be performed if necessary.

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS:

  • De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Nerve Injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Trigger Finger
  • Gamekeep’s Thumb
  • Grip Weakness
  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

TREATMENT

At Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, we have extensive experience in the treatment of wrist and hand pain. Based on functional assessment, we create an individual treatment plan. The procedure will be a combination of manual therapy and physical therapy exercises.
