Wrist Problems

  • Wrist pain can be the result of ligament or cartilage injury; there is the a cartilage in the wrist called  the Triangular fibrocartilage that when injured causes wrist pain on the little finger side of the wrist. This can be treated with  wrist arthroscopy usually. This non invasive treatment  allows for early use and is very successful for this problem.
  •  Osteoarthritis of the wrist joint causes swelling, pain, limited motion, and weakness. These symptoms are usually limited to the wrist joint itself.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis of the wrist joint also  causes swelling, pain, limited motion, and weakness. However, in contrast to Osteoarthritis, wrist symptoms will usually be accompanied by pain, swelling and stiffness in the knuckle joints of the hand.
