Hand and wrist pain can make it challenging to complete even the simplest daily tasks. Whether the pain is a result of arthritis, a jammed finger, or numbness from carpal tunnel, it can be difficult to complete important tasks in work or play. Often, physical therapy can be the difference between having a nagging hand injury that lasts for months and being pain-free. With 27 bones and 34 muscles, plus all of their associated ligaments, joints, and tendons, there are a lot of structures in your hand and wrist to sprain or tear.
Common Causes of Hand or Wrist Pain:
