Wrist and Hand Injuries

Wrist Injuries

The hand is made up of 27 bones, 8 of which are carpals or wrist bones, 5 are metacarpals, and 14 are phalanges also known as the fingers. The fingers are separated into 3 sections, proximal, intermediate and distal, except for the thumb which is only the proximal and distal. The three sections helps us to move our fingers and to grasp objects.

The wrist is made up of eight tiny bones that are positioned in two rows of four. These bones slide and move against each other. There is a tube that runs down the wrist called the carpal tunnel, which incases the tendons and nerves of the hands. This is a common site of injury and is most common with
jobs that require repetitive typing. Most wrist injuries are caused from repetition
such as, typing, racquet sports and sewing.

Other Wrist and Hand injuries could include:Wrist Pain

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Wrist and hand injuries are often treated with ultrasound, mobilizations, massage, and often strengthening and stretching muscles. Parafin wax can also be used to help relieve pain as well as anti-inflammatory medications
