and why this wrist pain causes so much distress?

Our wrist is primarily made up of a collection of small bones and is wrapped around in very little protective tissue. It’s not a surprise that many people complain about wrist pain because any problem with any of the small structures can cause pain!

Wrist pain should not be ignored, because there could be an underlying issue causing it, and the more you ignore it, the more likely it might get worse.

There are so many factors that can lead to wrist pain, and because of that, diagnosing the exact cause of your wrist pain can be difficult. To get relief from wrist pain, you’ll need to see your friendly neighbourhood doctor to determine what is causing it and take steps to prevent it from happening again.
