Wrist Pain Specialist
The Wrist is the joint between the bones of the forearm (Radius and Ulna) and the metacarpal bones of the hand. It is composed of 8 bones situated together by a complex configuration of ligaments. Ailments of the wrist may be due to direct injury (causing ligament sprains) or chronic inflammatory or arthritic conditions. Localized pain may be aching, but other symptoms may involve tingling or even numbness of the 1st to 3rd fingers.
Some of the more common causes of wrist pain include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Surgery may be necessary in some cases for carpal tunnel syndrome, if other treatments fail.
Various regenerative therapies utilized include:
