Elbow, Hand and Wrist Pain

Elbow, hand, and wrist pain are common health problems that can have a significant impact on an individual's quality of life. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, such as overuse, injury, and underlying medical conditions.

Elbow pain is often caused by conditions such as tennis elbow, which is a type of overuse injury that occurs when the tendons in the elbow are strained or damaged. Symptoms of tennis elbow may include pain, stiffness, and weakness in the elbow and forearm.

Hand and wrist pain may be caused by conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, which occurs when the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers.

Elbow, hand, and wrist pain can also be caused by underlying medical conditions such as arthritis, which is a condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints. Symptoms of arthritis may include stiffness, swelling, and difficulty moving the affected joints.
