Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are felt in the lower arms and hands. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, pain that radiates along the nerve path, and a sensation of pins and needles. The longer the nerve remains compressed, the higher the chance that permanent damage may occur. Because of this, it is important to seek treatment as soon as the condition is diagnosed.
A wrist fracture is a medical term for a broken wrist. The wrist is comprised of eight bones which connect with two forearm bones (radius and ulna).
Joint Pain and Arthritis
Pain and stiffness are common symptoms that one can experience with arthritis. If you find that you are experiencing inflammation and pain in the small bones of the wrist, consult with your orthopedist
Tendon or Ligament Injury
Ligaments are the connective tissues that connect bones to other bones. A sprain is an injury to a ligament. The most common ligament that is injured in the wrist is the scapho-lunate ligament. If you feel that you have a sprain, it is important that your doctor helps you reduce the inflammation and ensure the sprain is healed properly.
A ganglion cyst is a tumor or sac of liquid (cyst) that appears on top of a joint or the covering of a tendon. Tendons are tissues that connect muscle to bone.
Wrist tendonitis (tenosynovitis), is a common condition characterized by irritation and inflammation of the tendons around the wrist joint. Repeated motions are a common cause of this condition, and while tendinitis usually affects one tendon, it can also affect 2 tendons.
