Common Causes of Wrist and Hand Pain

Underlying medical problems causing wrist and hand pain:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome . Pressure on the wrist’s median nerve causing tingling, numbness, weakness, and pain of the fingers and hand.
  • Dupuytren’s Disease . A thickening of the tissue beneath the skin in the palm of the hand. Palmar fascia – the thickened skin and tendons – limit hand movement or prevent the fingers from straightening.
  • Ganglion Cysts . Small sacs filled with clear, jellylike fluid and appearing as bumps on the wrists and hands.
  • Tendon Pain . Tendinosis – small tears in the tissue around the tendon – decreasing strength and movement in the wrist and hand.
  • Repetitive Motion Syndrome . Pain, swelling, tenderness resulting from repeating the same movement over and over. Also known as writer’s cramp . Pain caused by repeated hand or finger motion – writing or typing.
