Common Causes and Symptoms of Wrist Pain​​

Wrist pain can stem from various causes, including repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, acute injuries like fractures or sprains, and chronic conditions such as arthritis or tendinitis. Symptoms often include pain, swelling, stiffness, numbness, and a decreased range of motion. Individuals may experience difficulty performing everyday tasks like typing, gripping objects, or lifting. Identifying the underlying cause of wrist pain is crucial for effective treatment and to prevent further complications. Some of the most common reasons for wrist pain are listed below:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This is one of the most common causes of wrist pain. The carpal tunnel is a small area in the wrist bordered by a layer of fascia. Sometimes, this fascia can become inflamed due to overuse, such as typing for long hours. When this happens, the median nerve passing through the carpal tunnel gets compressed, leading to shooting pains that travel down the wrist into the hand, accompanied by numbness and tingling.


Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that degrades the cartilage cushioning the bones of the hand and wrist. Without this cartilage, the bones rub against each other, causing wrist pain and making it difficult to move the hand and wrist from side to side.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Similar to carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the cubital tunnel in the wrist becomes inflamed, compressing the ulnar nerve. This condition often develops in sports like tennis, golf, and baseball. Symptoms include pain and numbness, usually on the back of the hand rather than the palmar side.


Tendinitis is the inflammation of the tendons around the wrist, typically due to repetitive motion or overuse. This condition often results in pain, swelling, and tenderness, making it difficult to perform everyday activities.
