Causes of Elbow, Wrist, and Hand Pain

There may be various conditions causing pain in these areas and affecting people of different ages. Sometimes individuals are not even aware that they have injured themselves.

  • Arthritis occurs when recurring motions or injuries damage the cartilage in the joint.
  • Fractures in the upper extremities due to falls can lead to a variety of diseases.
  • The cause of sprains and strains is sudden over-stretching, usually from a fall or lifting a heavy object. These may be a result of athletic activities. The term “Strains” is used when describing the above effect on muscles and tendons. “Sprains” is used when speaking about ligaments connecting bone to bone. 
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome is a nerve compression damage that can cause significant pain. 
  • Elbow bursitis occurs when the bursa at the end of the elbow is compressed due to an injury to the joint or repetitive actions. 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the carpal tunnel (narrow compartment on the palm side of the hand) placing pressure on the median nerve. 
  • Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow result from repetitive motions (gripping hammer or paintbrush), not necessarily sport.

Physical and massage therapy are all excellent treatments for these conditions, as they can help restore your range of motion and relieve your elbow, wrist, and hand pain without surgery. Depending on the cause of the pain, lifestyle habits may also need to be adapted to reduce the degree of pain and symptoms. Our specialists will give you detailed instructions if required by your case.
