One of the most common reasons patients come see us in Greenbelt, MD is forwrist pain. This is because wrist pain can be caused by so many different things, ranging from medical conditions and injuries to simply using the hands or wrists regularly for work or sports.
At Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we start with minimally invasive treatments for wrist pain, such as cortisone injections, exercise, massage, and encouraging more rest. Surgery is only recommended in severe cases. The treatment also depends on the cause of the wrist pain, as well as the severity.
Some of the common causes of wrist pain include:
- Overexertion or overuse
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ganglion cyst
Patients should visit us for wrist pain if they are having trouble carrying objects, see a deformity of their joint, cannot flex or straighten the wrist joint, have pain that is worse at night, experience numbness, tingling, or burning, or notice swelling, warmth, redness, or inflammation in the wrist area.
