Hand and Wrist Pain

What is hand and wrist pain?

Hand and wrist pain is discomfort in any part of your hand or wrist or the joint that connects your hand to your forearm. Pain intensity can range from mild to severe. You might also experience redness, swelling, numbness, tingling, or shooting, stabbing pain. Treatment with the experts at Feel Good Therapy can offer relief.

What causes hand and wrist pain?

If you experience hand and wrist pain, it might be due to one or more of the following:

  • Sprains 
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Other injuries
  • Repetitive stress
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Cysts

You might experience severe or long-lasting hand and wrist pain after a fall, sports injury, or work-related injury.

How does my provider diagnose hand or wrist injuries?

To find the root cause of hand or wrist pain, your Feel Good Physical Therapy provider reviews your symptoms and medical history. They examine your hand, wrist, and arm, and might recommend blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to diagnose your condition and create a personalized treatment plan.

What are my hand and wrist pain treatment options?

The Feel Good Physical Therapy team might recommend the following noninvasive treatments to relieve hand and wrist pain:

Casting or bracing

If you have a fracture or soft tissue injury, wearing a cast or brace helps restrict your range of motion to optimize healing.

RICE therapy

Resting your hand and wrist, ice, elevation, and compression can enhance healing and alleviate discomfort. 

Physical therapy

Your physical therapist helps you strengthen and stretch your hand and wrist to stimulate healing naturally and strengthen surrounding musculoskeletal tissues. 

Osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT)

During OMT, Dr. Trakhtenberg manually manipulates soft tissues in your hand and wrist to stimulate healing, relieve muscle tension, and diminish pain.

Therapeutic ultrasound

During a noninvasive therapeutic ultrasound, your therapist uses ultrasound energy to accelerate cell regeneration and healing naturally.

Cold laser therapy

Your provider offers cold laser therapy, or low-intensity light therapy, to increase your body’s natural healing ability. 

Kinesio® Taping

Your therapist can wrap Kinesio tape at targeted areas to support injured tissues without restricting movement, promote healing, stimulate healthy circulation, and prevent reinjury.
