The wrist is a small joint of the upper limb and is vital for hand movements and daily activities. A wrist injury can potentially affect a large part of life, causing pain with writing, sports, pushing up from your seat, or anything which requires the use of your hands. Sometimes compression can occur in the wrist joint, leading to tingling, numbness and weakness of the muscles of the hands.

Common wrist injuries include:

Carpal tunnel syndrome – Repetitive strain or overuse injury. Impingement of the median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel.

Fractures – Falling on outstretched arm, sport or work related injury.

Muscle strained / ligament sprain Stressed over deviation from normal range of motion causing micro tears in muscles/ligaments around the wrist.
