Wrist pain can be complex and debilitating. If you are suffering from wrist pain and are seeking physical therapy in Massapequa, contact us at Park Physical Therapy today!
There are several injuries and diseases characterized by wrist pain. So, while overuse of the wrist may be the cause of your pain, a doctor will also investigate for symptoms of these conditions:
A sprain occurs when the wrist ligaments are stretched beyond their normal limits. In addition to the pain that often accompanies this injury, swelling, bruising, and discoloration are also common symptoms.
Wrist tendonitis develops when one or more of the tendons that stretch across the wrist become inflamed. Accompanying symptoms include dull, aching pain, swelling, stiffness, and a popping sensation when moving the wrist. If you suffer from tendonitis of the wrist, our expert physical therapy in Massapequa is trained to help our patients recover from this condition.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a disease resulting from a pinched nerve in the wrist. Besides wrist pain, someone with carpal tunnel syndrome may experience numbness and tingling in their palms, thumbs, index, or middle finger. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common wrist conditions, affecting nearly 7% of workers in the US. Our physical therapy in Massapequa will help you recover from symptoms of carpal tunnel.
Arthritis is a painful stiffness in the joints. A variety of types of arthritis may be the cause of wrist pain. Most commonly affecting the wrist, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition when the body’s immune system breaks down healthy tissue. Other types such as osteoarthritis (wearing away of cartilage causing joint inflammation) or septic bacterial arthritis may also be the culprit.
These benign cysts typically occur on the back of the hand or wrist and cause pain and/or swelling in the wrist.
Carpal boss is a small, firm sack of fluid that forms over a joint or tendon. If the cyst puts pressure on the joint’s nerves, you may experience tingling and muscle weakness in addition to pain.
No matter the cause of your wrist pain, physical therapy can be greatly helpful in providing you with relief. Visit Park Physical Therapy if you are looking for physical therapy in Massapequa to help relieve your wrist pain.
