Understanding Elbow, Wrist & Hand Pain

Elbow, wrist and hand pain is devastating due to its interference with daily activities. Finding a pain solution is a priority if any of them are fractured, swollen, sprained, or suffering from tendonitis or arthritis. Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to help relieve your elbow, wrist, and hand pain.

Introduction to Elbow, Wrist & Hand Pain

The elbow, wrist, and hand are essential for performing daily tasks with ease but are severely hampered when they suffer from any sort of pain.

 

The elbow acts as your arm’s hinge and is affected by inflammation in the tendons or bursa if there is an injury to the bone, joint, or from irritated nerves.

 

Wrist pain is often associated with carpal tunnel syndrome (occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed or pinched) as well as other symptoms:

 

  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Tingling near the thumb

Applying hot and cold compression, taking anti-inflammatories, or wearing a wrist brace can help ease the pain.
