Treatment for Hand & Arm Pain in Santa Clarita
Why Is Hand and Arm Pain So Common?
While technology is constantly being updated, our body structure is not, which explains why we’ve seen an uptick in cases of hand, arm, and wrist pain in recent years. Many of us need to be at our computers in order to make a living, but those who spend twelve hours or more a day on their computers are five times more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the leading causes of hand and wrist pain. Carpal tunnel occurs when there is increased pressure in the wrist on a nerve called the median nerve, and although it affects 3-6% of adults in the general population, it is not the only cause of hand and arm pain.
These are some other potential causes of hand and arm pain:
- Rotator cuff injury
- Autoimmune disease
- Broken bones
- Strain or sprain; overuse
- Pinched nerve
- Herniated disk
- Brachial plexopathy
- Tennis or golf elbow
- Ganglion cyst
- Trigger finger
- Raynaud’s phenomenon
- De Quervain’s disease
- A fracture
