Painful Wrist
Wrist Pain
Wrist Pain

What Is It?

Many individuals may experience general wrist pain, especially when participating in high intensity exercise that features barbell training and weight-bearing through the hands. It is common to have pain performing activities that place the wrists into prolonged or repetitive extension such as barbell overhead pressing, pushups and burpees. This type of pain tends to set in after the workout or activity, sometimes the following day or accumulating over weeks or months until symptoms are felt. Pain is most commonly felt along the dorsal side (back of the hand/wrist).

Many people complain of:

  • Pain or difficulty with the barbell front rack position
  • Discomfort with weight-bearing through the hands
  • Limited mobility in wrist extension
  • Decreased grip strength
Tennis Elbow

What Is It?

The medical term for tennis elbow is lateral epicondylalgia. It is described as an overuse syndrome of the extensor tendons that attach to the lateral (outside) aspect of the elbow. Tennis elbow occurs from repetitive activities or contractile overload of the extensor muscles of the forearm. Despite its name, people who play tennis make up a very small percentage of individuals with this issue. Lateral Epicondyglalgia is common among throwing athletes, weightlifters, and vocations that require single arm use such as electricians, carpenters, gardeners, and office workers. Many will try to rest and avoid the activities that provoke their pain, but ultimately this is not a good longterm solution. A treatment program that consists of manual therapy and gradual tendon strengthening exercises will help reduce pain and prevent recurrence.

Many people complain of:

  • Point tenderness and pain on the outside aspect of their elbow
  • Forearm muscle tightness and weakness
  • Pain that usually worsens during and lingers after activity
  • Discomfort and weakness with actions that involve lifting the wrist up or turning it over

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What Is It?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a very common nerve irritation that affects the wrist and hand. It can be a very painful and uncomfortable condition that persists and worsens over time, affecting daily and work activities. CTS is an irritation of the median nerve which originates from the spinal cord in the neck and branches down the entire arm and into the hand. It can become compressed as it travels through the carpal tunnel of the wrist into the hand. Individuals who are more at risk for developing CTS include: those with a genetic predisposition, those who perform repetitive wrist movements (like typing), and those who experience obesity, autoimmune disorders, and pregnancy.
