Common symptoms of elbow, wrist, and hand pain
Short-term pain in the elbow, wrist or hand is often the result of injury, but chronic pain can indicate illness or other causes.
You may feel that your pain level is mild or severe, and it may also stop, which means it comes and goes at different times.
Other pain-related symptoms may include urinary incontinence or stiffness, especially on the fingers.
This can make it difficult for you to physically perform in a normal range, creating issues with work or completing everyday tasks, depending on the seriousness of your condition.
Common causes of elbow, wrist, or hand pain
Below are some of the most common pain conditions you may experience:
A bag is filled with a fluid called “bursa” that acts as an elbow bone or “ulna” at the end of the elbow. If the bursa is narrowed due to injury or repeated movements, it can cause pain and inflammation. For this reason, it is common to see situations among athletes and students.
Arthritis is a prevalent condition, and, according to the Arthritis Foundation, it is the most common form of disability in the country. Arthritis is present in many forms but is usually caused by repeated movements or injuries affecting the joints of the elbows, hands or arms. Team Trinity helps you to improve joint movement, reduce inflammation, and strengthen the surrounding supportive muscles.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
Carpal tunnel syndrome impacts most hard-working Canadians every year, according to research. The primary function of the carpal tunnel is not only to protect the neck used to bend the fingers but also the fingers. However, this tunnel can become constricted, and when it does, nerve compression can result, leading to a variety of symptoms, such as numbness and tingling to the thumb, 1st, and 2nd fingers. In addition, pain to the wrist, hand, and swelling to the hand and fingers is even possible. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) can be caused by injuries or repeated tasks, such as working on an assembly line, a heavy keyboard or heavy machinery.
Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow
Tennis elbow refers to pain on the lateral or outside of the elbow, while golfer’s elbow refers to pain inside or medial of the elbow. Both of these injuries result from repetitive use injuries and can be attributed to various tasks, not just the sports they are named after. Physical therapy treatment is the best treatment for these diseases, as it restores the boundaries of the root system and soft tissue, causing the strain to constrict and quickly reduce inflammation.
Sprains and strains on the elbows, arms or wrist can cause pain. Disorders refer to injuries to muscles or tendons, while displacement refers to ligaments that connect bones to bones. These injuries are often caused by a rapidly stretching bandage or tendon, such as falling with an outstretched hand or grabbing a heavy object.
