Physical Therapy for Hand Pain, Wrist Pain, & Elbow Pain

You constantly use your hands, wrists, and elbows throughout the day, but nothing makes you realize how much you use them until you start to experience aches and pains. Unfortunately, hand pain, wrist pain, and elbow pain can dramatically impact your quality of life.

Whether you’re experiencing discomfort due to an injury, ailment, or an underlying health condition, the pain can keep you from going to work, participating in sports, or performing everyday activities. Physical therapy can provide relief or help you recover from hand pain, wrist pain, or elbow pain.

What are the Most Common Causes of Hand Pain,
Wrist Pain, and Elbow Pain

Your hands, wrists, and elbows are made up of many tendons, muscles, bones, and joints, so it can be challenging to diagnose the underlying cause. Short-term pain usually results from an injury, while long-term pain can be from overuse or other factors.

Common causes of hand pain, wrist pain, and elbow pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Elbow Bursitis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Strains and Sprains
  • Tendon Injury
  • Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow
  • Wrist Tendonitis
