Wrist pain is any discomfort in the wrist.
Although small, the human wrist is made up of eight bones, alongside, ligaments, tendons and tissue.
Your wrists play a central part in most daily activities and because of this, they can be subject to injury or repetitive stress.
If your symptoms are not improving within six weeks of starting exercises, please contact Physio Advice Line on 0300 555 0210.
It is important to see your GP if:
- Your wrist pain came on following a fall or trauma.
- Your think you may have broken your wrist.
- You have pins and needles, numbness or weakness in your hand.
- You have swollen or stiff fingers.
Often, wrist pain improves with rest, ice and changes in activities but if this isn’t working, we recommend trying the exercises listed in our leaflet.
