Hand, Wrist & Elbow Q & A

What are some common causes of hand, wrist, and elbow pain?

A number of conditions can cause hand, wrist or elbow pain, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Trigger finger
  • Sprains 
  • Ganglion cyst
  • Tendinitis
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • De Quervain syndrome
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Symptoms of hand, wrist, or elbow pain may include weakness, tingling, numbness, or swelling. Certain hand, wrist, and elbow conditions like tendinitis and De Quervain syndrome are caused by repetitive stress and overuse that damages your tendons, muscles, and other tissues over time. 

Most of these conditions can bring about ongoing pain that can limit your activities and disrupt your normal routine. Fortunately, 360 Orthopedics offers a wide range of conservative treatments to relieve your pain and restore your health without the need for surgery.  

How is hand, wrist, and elbow pain diagnosed?

Your hand, wrist, or elbow pain can come from a wide range of injuries and diseases, so an accurate diagnosis is essential. 360 Orthopedics offers a number of advanced diagnostics to determine the underlying cause of your pain. 

To begin your diagnosis, your doctor performs an in-depth physical exam to check for tenderness, inflammation, and other abnormalities. You and your doctor also discuss your symptoms, medical history, and any recent injuries. 

Depending on your condition, your doctor may conduct imaging tests like an X-ray or MRI. 360 Orthopedics also offers electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS), which measure the health and function of your nerves and muscles. 

After your diagnosis, your doctor determines the best treatments for your condition and works with you to develop your individualized treatment plan.
