What are the common causes of hand and wrist pain?

Hand and wrist pain can stem from various factors, including:

Overuse or repetitive strain

Engaging in repetitive tasks or motions, such as typing or gripping tools, can strain the tendons and muscles in your hand and wrist.


Falls, sports-related incidents, or accidents may result in sprains, strains, fractures, or dislocations within your hand and wrist.


Conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can cause inflammation and degeneration of the joints in your hand and wrist, leading to pain and stiffness.

When should you see an orthopaedic doctor for hand and wrist pain?

It's advisable to seek medical attention if you experience the following:

Persistent pain

If hand and wrist pain persists beyond a few days or significantly impacts your daily activities, it's crucial to consult with an orthopaedic specialist.

Swelling or redness

Swelling, redness, or warmth in your hand or wrist may indicate an underlying issue that requires professional evaluation and treatment.

Limited range of motion

Difficulty moving your hand or wrist, accompanied by pain or stiffness, warrants a thorough examination to identify the root cause.
