The wrist is the joint where the lower arm meets the hand. But what we refer to as one joint is actually comprised of many joints (two arm bones meeting four hand bones) so there are many factors that need to be considered when diagnosing a wrist injury. Pain in the wrist is often the result of repetitive stress injuries, like Carpel Tunnel Syndrome or ganglion cysts. Compression of nerves in the neck (cervical spine) can also cause pain that radiates into the wrist and hand. It is imperative to get proper treatment for wrist injuries promptly as the development of scar tissue and injuries left untreated can lead to chronic, painful conditions that are less responsive to treatment.
