Elbow, Hand & Wrist

Pain in the elbow, hand, and wrist can be sharp and acute, or dull and chronic. Often, it can impair a person’s ability to perform activities like driving, cooking, or writing. When the pain persists, a visit to a medical professional may become necessary. Physical therapy is a non-invasive approach, supporting the body’s healing process. Our team offers tailored treatment programs to reduce discomfort, and improve range of motion in the elbow, hand, and wrist. Learn more about physical therapy for the elbow, hand, and wrist today.

What Causes Elbow, Hand, and Wrist Pain?

The elbow is a frequently used joint. Pain in this area is often a result of overuse. Repetitive stress injuries like tennis elbow result from injury to surrounding elbow tendons due to repeated movements. Such pain may also be due to sprains, arthritis, or bursitis.

The structure of the hand is complex. People that tend to clench or grip a lot can develop trigger finger. This condition may be painful. With trigger finger, there is inflammation of the tendon sheath of the first finger. Those who do not seek treatment may see their finger assume a bent position. Hand pain may also result from entrapped nerves, a sprain, or arthritis. 

One leading cause of wrist pain is carpal tunnel syndrome. In such an instance, the carpal tunnel narrows, placing extra pressure on the highly-specialized median nerve. People who develop this condition can experience tingling, numbness, or pain. This feeling may not only be felt at the wrist, but also along the first two fingers, thumb, and forearm. Discomfort in this area may also be from pinched nerves, a strain or sprain, or arthritis. 

Physical Therapy for Elbow, Hand, and Wrist Pain

Every case is unique, and symptoms may present differently with elbow, hand, and wrist pain.  Physical therapy can be used in a treatment program for carpal tunnel, trigger finger, and tennis elbow. Treatment is tailored to the needs of each patient after a thorough assessment.  Physical therapy has been known to reduce inflammation, improve nerve function, and increase mobility for those experiencing pain in the elbow, hand, and wrist.
