What Is Hand and Wrist Pain?
When you have pain that affects your hands or wrists, it can be a bit complicated to find the cause. After all, both the hands and wrists consist of an intricate network of parts working together harmoniously. Delicate bones, small joints, muscles and connective tissue all make the thousands of tasks we do with our hands and wrists every day possible. When you add in the blood vessels and nerves, many things can go wrong.
If any of these components experiences an issue, pain in your hands or wrists is usually the result.
