What Causes Hand and Wrist Pain?

Injury, overuse, and underlying medical conditions can all cause hand and wrist pain. The most common causes are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: a condition that occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, leading to pain, tingling, and weakness in the hand.
  • Tendinitis: inflammation of the tendons in the wrist can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.
  • Arthritis: a degenerative condition that can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints of the hand and wrist.
  • Repetitive strain injury: overuse of the hands and wrists can lead to pain and discomfort.
