A Complete Guide On Wrist Pain Physiotherapy
Understanding Wrist Pain
Wrist pain is a common problem that can be caused by many different things. The most common type of wrist pain is called carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a condition where the median nerve, which runs from your shoulder to your hand, gets squeezed or compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel in your wrist.
This is a pain that can come and go, or it can be a constant pain. It may get worse when you use your hand or wrist in certain ways. You may also have numbness or tingling in your hand or arm.
This pain means that the median nerve is getting squeezed or compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel in your wrist.
Types of Wrist Pain
There are many different types of wrist pain. Here are just a few:
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
This type of wrist pain is caused by a pinched nerve. It causes numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand or arm.
This type of wrist pain is caused by inflammation of the tendon sheath that surrounds tendons in your hand and wrist. It causes swelling on top of your wrist and can be very painful to use your hands for tasks such as typing on a keyboard or holding utensils while eating.
Arthritis is a condition where there are changes in joints due to wear-and-tear over time (such as osteoarthritis). This can cause pain when you move your fingers around too much or put weight on them during activities like lifting weights at the gym! Arthritis can also affect other joints in your body such as your knees, hips, and spine.
This is a condition where the bursa (a fluid-filled sac that helps reduce friction between tissues) becomes inflamed. This causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the wrist.
A ganglion cyst is a type of lump or mass that forms on or around a joint. These are often found on the back of the hand next to the wrist, but they can form anywhere on your arm or hand. Ganglion cysts are usually benign (not cancerous), but they can be very painful and may need to be surgically removed if they don’t go away on their own.
Signs of Wrist Pain
There are many signs of wrist pain. These include:
- Pain in your wrist when you use it (such as typing on a keyboard), especially at night or when it is cold outside. You may also feel burning, stabbing, or electric sensations in your hand and fingers.
- Weakness in your grip strength due to the weakness caused by carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Numbness or tingling in your hand, arm, thumb, or index finger. This may be worse at night.
- Swelling on the top of your wrist.
- Changes in the shape of your palm (such as it becoming flatter than normal).
- wrist pain can be caused by many things. For example, it could be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon sheath). Both of these conditions are common and very treatable.
Causes of Wrist Pain
There are many different causes of wrist pain. The most common ones are:
Stress can cause tension and tightness in the muscles and ligaments of your hand and wrist, which can lead to pain.
If you do a lot of activities that use the same motion over and over again (like typing on a keyboard), this can cause inflammation in the tendons of your hands and wrists. This is called tendonitis.
Bad posture when sitting or standing can put a lot of stress on your wrists, leading to pain. This is especially common if you have a job that requires you to sit at a desk all day long.
If you fall on your outstretched hand, this can cause damage to the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons in your wrist and lead to pain.
Medical conditions like arthritis, tendinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome can also cause wrist pain. Arthritis is a condition where the cartilage in between your bones wears down over time due to wear and tear (this happens naturally as we age). Tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendon sheath that surrounds tendons in your hand and wrist. Carpel Tunnel Syndrome occurs when there’s pressure on one nerve at its base near your elbow or shoulder blade which causes numbness and tingling sensations along with weakness throughout all parts of both arms including fingers!
Treatment of Foot Pain
There are many different treatments for wrist pain. The most common ones are:
If your wrist is hurting, give it a break! Reduce the amount of time you spend doing activities that cause pain and allow yourself some time to heal. This may mean taking a few days off from work or skipping your favorite workout class.
Applying ice to your wrist can help reduce swelling and inflammation. Do this for 15-20 minutes every few hours as needed. It also feels really good!
Wearing a brace or wrap around your wrist can help compress the area and reduce swelling.
If you can, try to keep your wrist elevated above the level of your heart as often as possible. This will also help with reducing swelling.
Physical Therapy/Manual Therapy
Physical therapy or manual therapy may be recommended if you have chronic wrist pain that doesn’t go away with other treatments. These therapies involve working with a physical therapist who will give you exercises and stretches to do at home to help improve flexibility and strength in your wrist.
If the pain is severe and other treatments haven’t worked, surgery may be an option. This usually involves repairing or removing the damaged tissue in your wrist.
Physiotherapy For Wrist pain
Physiotherapy is sometimes recommended for wrist pain. This is a type of physical therapy that focuses on restoring movement and strength in the wrist. It may involve exercises and stretches to do at home, as well as manual therapy from a therapist. If you’re experiencing wrist pain, talk to your doctor about whether physiotherapy is right for you.

Different Types of Physiotherapy For Wrist Pain
There are different types of physiotherapy that can be used to treat wrist pain. Some of the most common ones are:
Compression therapy involves applying pressure on the wrist area to reduce swelling. This is done with a wrap or brace and may be used for chronic pain that doesn’t go away with other treatments.
This type of physiotherapy uses hands-on techniques such as massage and stretching exercises on your wrist joint in order to improve mobility and flexibility in that part of the body.
Exercise/Stretching Exercises For Wrist Pain
These types involve doing targeted movements or stretching at home, which aim to strengthen muscles around where it hurts so they can better support joints when you’re moving about during daily activities like typing on keyboards at work all day long.
Gently move your hand and fingers in all directions (up, down, side to side), hold each stretch for about 20 seconds. You can also do these exercises lying down or sitting up:
- Flexion: Bend your hand at the wrist until you feel a comfortable stretch. Hold for 15-20 seconds then relax. Repeat three times.
- Extension: Straighten your hand and arm out in front of you until you feel a comfortable stretch. Hold for 15-20 seconds then relax. Repeat three times.
- Circumduction: Rotate your hand in circles for 15-20 seconds. Repeat three times.
