Our hands and wrists are so crucial. We use them for most of our daily tasks such as gripping items, shaking hands, writing, typing, and so much more! Our experts at Carle McLean County Orthopedics recognize the importance of hand and wrist health and are trained to treat a range of hand and wrist injuries or conditions. Every day, we use our hands to accomplish small to large tasks. Those who suffer from hand pain or wrist pain are constantly using their painful extremities. The hands and wrists are filled with so many small bones that can cause numerous injuries. All of these bones in the hands and wrists are all connected through muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Hand and wrist pain can affect people of all ages. Sports injuries, falls, and repetitive stress on the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are just a few accidents that can cause hand and wrist pain. Hand and wrist pain may include swelling, tenderness, loss of motion, weakness, or popping in the wrist.
