Pain in the wrist
Pain in the wrist can be caused by a sports injury or strain due to, for example, using a mouse incorrectly. It can cause pain or a feeling of immobility in the wrist. Sometimes it can be so bad that you just don’t know any more how to rest you wrist comfortably. This is tough because we need our wrist so much to type or play a musical instrument.
Pain in the hand
A hand injury is very inconvenient. We use our hands for so many things on a daily basis that we don’t even know how dependent we are on them. That makes it even more tricky when we can’t use them properly any more. Pain in your hands can have many reasons such as arthritis, tendinitis, trauma, fracture etc. You are in good hands with us!
Are you finding it difficult to find a comfortable position because everything hurts? This can be the consequence of having a sedentary job where you spend hours sitting at your desk or in the car. This puts too much fixed strain on the muscles so that too little movement takes place. The muscles can become numb and cause localized pain. As you keep changing position to ease the pain you end up in a viscous circle.
