Common Wrist Pain Diagnosis

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Normally felt as numbness and tingling in the hand and arm, carpal tunnel syndrome is a medical condition that occurs by the pressure on the median nerve (pinched nerve) narrowing the carpal tunnel.
  • Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the world and it is commonly referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis and degenerative joint disease.
  • Wrist Tendonitis: Wrist tendonitis means inflammation of the tendons in the wrist. Mild pain is typical for this condition and is considered localized pain in or around the tendon.
  • Wrist Fracture: A wrist fracture can occur in any of the 10 bones surrounding it. Although any of the ten bones can break, the most common wrist fracture is in the radius.
  • Ganglion cysts: Ganglion cysts typically develop along the tendons or joints of your wrist or hands. These particular cysts are noncancerous and are usually painless.
  • Kienbock’s Disease: This disorder typically affects young adults. Kienbocks disease involves the progressive collapse of small bones in the wrist. It occurs when the blood supply to the bone is in jeopardy.
