Wrist / Hand
The specialty-trained doctors at Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of wrist injuries and conditions.
The wrist is a highly complex structure made up of 10 different bones and more than 20 different tendons and ligaments that must work in synchronization for normal function. The tendons in the wrist control movement for the fingers, wrist, and even the elbow. Since nearly all activities require finger and hand involvement, the structures of the wrist are constantly working. As a result, the vast majority of wrist injuries and conditions are related to overuse and repetitive stress.
Symptoms of a wrist injury include:
- Pain in/around any portion of the wrist
- Numbness/tingling into the palm or fingers
- Limited movement of the wrist or fingers
- Pain into the forearm
- Loss of grip strength

This is a condition caused by inflammation of two tendons near the base of the thumb on the posterior or backside of the wrist. The two tendons affected are extensor pollicus brevis and abductor pollicus longus. This condition typically occurs from overuse of the thumb and wrist but may also occur following direct trauma to the region. Activities that require repetitive use of the thumb and wrist may lead to irritation of these tendons. Symptoms may include pain and swelling around the base of the thumb and difficulty with gripping and pinching.
