It’s likely you don’t even realize how often you use your hands; writing, typing, driving, reading, cooking, exercising — the daily list goes on and on. Your hands and wrists contain various bones, cartilage, and joints that work together so you can perform your usual activities comfortably. However, wrist pain, stiffness, and swelling can hinder the use of your hands and result in discomfort.

Such pain can be caused by a number of injuries or ailments:

  • Broken Wrist
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ganglion Cyst
  • Hand Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A.)
