Wrist pain is often caused by sprains or fractures from sudden injuries, but can also result from long-term problems, such as repetitive stress, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Because so many factors can lead to wrist pain, diagnosing the exact cause can be difficult, yet an accurate diagnosis is essential for proper treatment and healing.
Hand pain can be caused by a disease or an injury affecting any of the structures in the hand, including bones, muscles, joints, tendons, blood vessels, or connective tissues. It is one feature of joint inflammation (arthritis). Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the two most common types of arthritis in the hand. Hand pain may also be caused by repetitive motion injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
