Wrist Pain

When the tissue around the carpal tunnel is swollen, it can put pressure on the median nerve. This pressure irritates the nerve and causes tingling and numbness in the thumb, index, and middle fingers. This condition is called carpal tunnel syndrome. 





  • Headaches usually feel throbbing, pounding, or pulsating
  • Chills
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness 
  • Problems concentrating, trouble to find words 
  • Sensitivity to light or sound 
  • Sweating 
  • Feeling mentally dull, like your thinking is not clear or sharp 
  • Increased need for sleep 
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness and tingling of the hand in the distribution of the median nerve (the thumb, index, middle, and part of the fourth fingers). 
  • Burning sensation 
  • Cramping and weakness of the hand.
  • Decreased grip strength can lead to frequent dropping of objects from the hand.
  • Chronic carpal tunnel syndrome can also lead to wasting (atrophy) of the hand muscles, particularly those near the base of the thumb in the palm of the hand.

There are a few things you can do to proactively avoid wrist pain, rather than waiting for it to happen and then trying to react.

  • Practice proper ergonomics in common spaces. This means ensuring that desks, chairs, and other surfaces are not contributing to overuse or stress of the wrist area.
  • Fix your posture. Poor posture puts unnecessary strain on the wrists, so make sure you are sitting and standing tall.
  • Change positions often. Don’t stay in the same position for too long, as this can also lead to strain.
  • Stay hydrated. Proper hydration helps keep the joints healthy and can prevent pain.
  • Finally, try some simple exercises like upside down hand stretches, fist to fan stretches, and thumb touches. These exercises can help keep the wrists flexible and strong, reducing the risk of pain.

I have been visiting the clinic for the past two years and my experience has been great. Dr. Kant is very knowledgeable and he treats his patients with full dedication and patience. I underwent treatment for my neck and back pain and I got relief after just a few sessions of dry needling. So, I would recommend everyone to visit KALP HEALTH CARE for any kind of physiotherapy treatment.

At the age of 53, a back problem is scary when a doctor tells you that you need 10 days of bed rest or surgery! I went to Kalp expecting the usual steps of physiotherapy, but I couldn't even stand up straight or get out of bed without shooting pain. This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. Dr. Kant is a simple man but a magician when it comes to his treatment. He is passionate and positive about his treatment and knows the human body like the back of his hand. A dedicated team with Dr. Monika and Dr. Rakesh got me on my feet in just 3 days. This is the best treatment I could have asked for!

Vivek Goyal

Dr. Kant and his clinic are excellent in treating muscular and spinal issues - it's very clean and hygienic. Dr. Kant has great understanding and knowledge, quickly reaching to the root of what's wrong and able to provide Relief within a few sessions. I found a solution to my spine problem after seeking treatment from Dr. Kant - I had tried all kinds of treatments before but hadn't been able to find any relief.

Frequently Asked Questions

In the wrist. Carpus is a word derived from the Greek word karpos, which means “wrist.” The carpal tunnel is the passageway in the wrist that is made up of the arching carpal bones and the ligament connecting the pillars of the arch. The median nerve and the tendons that connect the fingers to the muscles of the forearm pass through the narrow tunnel.

True. For most patients, the cause of their carpal tunnel syndrome is unknown. Any condition that exerts pressure on the median nerve at the wrist can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Common conditions that lead to carpal tunnel syndrome can include obesity, pregnancy, hypothyroidism, arthritis, diabetes, trauma, and tendon inflammation. Some rare diseases can cause deposition of abnormal substances in and around the carpal tunnel, leading to nerve irritation. These diseases include amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.

Decreased grip and decreased hand strength, burning, cramping, weakness, and wasting of the hand and shooting pains in the forearm. Note: Carpal tunnel syndrome may be a temporary condition that completely resolves or it can persist and progress. As carpal tunnel syndrome progresses, patients can develop a burning sensation, and/or cramping and weakness of the hand. Decreased grip strength can lead to frequent dropping of objects from the hand. Additionally, sharp, shooting pains can sometimes be felt in the forearm. Chronic carpal tunnel syndrome can also lead to wasting (atrophy) of the hand muscles, particularly those in the palm of the hand near the base of the thumb.

At night. Carpal tunnel syndrome typically affects the thumb, index, and middle fingers and is often particularly troublesome at night. Additionally, it affects almost 5% of the population and is most common in middle-aged women.

False. Despite the common belief that frequent typing can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, the relationship between heavy typing and carpal tunnel syndrome is unclear. Actually, carpal tunnel syndrome is three times more common among assembly line workers than it is among data-entry personnel — and frequent use of vibrating hand tools increases the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. A 2001 study found that even heavy computer use — up to seven hours a day — did not make people more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome
