Wrist Pain Physiotherapy Treatment in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton

The wrist, also known as the carpus, is a complex joint that connects the hand’s five metacarpal bones to the forearm’s wrist area. It consists of the radiocarpal joint, which connects the radius (the shorter forearm bone on the thumb side) and the ulna (the longer forearm bone on the thumb side).

Causes Of Wrist Pain

Wrist pain can occur due to sprains or fractures resulting from sudden falls or injuries. It can also be caused by chronic conditions like repetitive stress, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Ulnar wrist pain and radial wrist pain are typically the result of a sprained scapholunate ligament, a partial tear, or a complete tear, often caused by Falling On an Outstretched Hand (FOOSH).

Other common factors contributing to wrist pain include:

  • Tumors such as Glomus Tumors, Ganglion Cysts, and Osteochondroma
  • Carpal instability
  • Distal Radius Fracture (fracture at the end of the radius bone near the wrist joint)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Thumb pain or tendinitis
  • Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
