Wrist pain may arise for a variety of reasons, some of which include wrist tendinitis, over-use, arthritis, or from a traumatic injury. In most cases, Physical Therapy provides a non-surgical and effective treatment method to significantly improve mobility and decrease pain.
For whatever reason, sometimes the wrist develops disabling pain and using the wrist only makes this pain worse without giving it the chance to heal. The most common injuries of the wrist include tendinitis, a sprain, and arthritis. Using physical therapy, it is possible to strengthen the wrist and alleviate wrist pain.
