HAND/WRIST/ELBOW PAIN

Elbow pain is a common ailment that typically affects a person’s dominant arm due to the number of bones, muscles and tendons that meet in the area. The bicep and tricep flex and extend the elbow, while the humerus bone meets the ulna and radius bones at the elbow. Tendons on the outside of the elbow are commonly injured in what’s called “tennis elbow”, while injuries to tendons on the inside of the elbow are known as “golfers elbow.” Elbow bones may also fracture, sometimes causing intense pain due to the ulnar nerve, commonly known as the “funny bone”.

Hand/wrist pain is typically caused by the everyday wear and tear we put on our hands. The pain you experience may include a wide variety of sensations like soreness, numbness, tingling, and throbbing. This is due to a large number of acute and chronic conditions that can cause hand/wrist pain. For acute pain, you should rest your injured hand and use the other hand for all possible activities. In addition we suggest you avoid all activities that cause you to flex/extend your wrist. If the pain doesn’t subside in a week, we recommend you see a doctor to rule out a chronic condition such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, or Tendonitis.
