    Wrist pain only sounds minor until you have to live with it. Your wrist is both compact and complicated. There are many tiny, intricate joints that join your hand to your arm. Since virtually every movement of your hand and fingers involves your wrist in some way, this part of your body endures a ton of wear-and-tear.

    There are nearly as many types of wrist pain as there are causes. While age and activity can harm your wrist, impact and injury can also damage the bone, cartilage, veins, nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments that make up or flow through your wrist. Successful treatment for wrist pain depends largely on accurately diagnosing the problem. The pain management doctors in New York can get to the bottom of your wrist pain.

    Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome has come a long way over the years and ranges from rest to surgical options. Your top-rated pain management doctor in New York helps you decide on the treatment that’s best for your condition and lifestyle.

    How Is Wrist Pain Diagnosis

    Our expert doctor has a few methods to diagnose you wrist pain, depending on the suspected cause of your wrist pain. The wrist pain specialist first performs a physical exam. During the exam, the doctor manually bends your wrist to test for numbness or asks you to hold objects to test your grip.

    In most cases of wrist injury, the doctor will order an X-ray to see the bone and diagnose for osteoarthritis. In cases where carpal tunnel is suspected, the wrist specialist orders an electromyography. This tests the nerves in your wrist. It is usually done if you experience numbness or tingling in your wrist, burning pain that travels up your arm, or weakness in the hand.

    If these tests are inconclusive, the specialist then does an arthroscopy. This is a test in which a small incision is made in your wrist and a tiny camera is inserted. This test allows the wrist injury specialist to see inside your wrist and is the best test for diagnosing long term wrist pain.

    Treatment for Wrist Pain

    You should never simply ignore a pain in your wrist. Leaving your problem untreated allows it to get worse. Appropriate wrist pain treatment drastically improves your overall quality of life. Physical therapy is often the recommended course of treatment, and that’s where a wrist injection can help. Once your pain is eliminated, you can work through the physical therapy exercises.
