Wrist Pain

The wrist is a complex joint that is also subject to a variety of injuries. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common condition, which is usually treated with physical therapy, night splints, and injections. Sometimes the condition persists, and an EMG/Nerve conduction study is used to confirm the diagnosis. If nerve damage is present, a carpal tunnel release may be needed.

Other degenerative conditions can also affect the wrist. Whatever is causing your wrist pain we can diagnose and treat your condition.
