When to see a wrist and hand specialist
It’s a good idea to consult with a specialist if you experience wrist or hand pain, which may come on suddenly after a traumatic injury or develop gradually through overuse. Other symptoms to watch for include swelling, numbness, tingling sensations, stiffness and muscle weakness. Even if the discomfort is mild or the issue seems trivial, early diagnosis and treatment may resolve it before it becomes a major problem – and possibly help you avoid surgery. This is especially important when you consider that your wrists and hands touch virtually every aspect of your life.
