Common Conditions of the Hand, Wrist & Forearm

The hands and wrists are supported and held in place by soft tissue, including tendons, ligaments, muscles, and cartilage. It is very common to experience pain or minor injuries to the hand and wrist throughout life. Common wrist problems include carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, ganglion cysts, tendonitis, fractures and osteoarthritis. These conditions, along with overuse, trauma, and compressed nerves, can cause pain that extends into the forearm restricting movement, dexterity and activities of daily living.
