Wrist Pain Treatment
The first step toward figuring out your ideal course of wrist pain treatment is to determine what is at the root of your symptoms. There are several medical conditions and lifestyle factors that could be to blame.
Wrist Pain Treatment: What Are My Options?
There are several medical conditions and lifestyle factors that could be to blame, including:
- A sprain
- Stress fractures
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- A ganglion cyst
- Playing sports, particularly golf, tennis, gymnastics, bowling, and basketball
- Having a job that places frequent strain on your wrists, such as cutting hair or painting
If you frequently experience wrist pain, it’s important to promptly seek medical care. Only a medical professional can determine what is causing your wrist pain and administer appropriate treatment.
Many wrist conditions can be managed or resolved with conservative measures like medication, bracing, and physical therapy. Less commonly, surgery may be recommended to stabilize broken bones, address carpal tunnel syndrome or repair damaged tissues like tendons and ligaments.
