Elbow Wrist & Hand Pain Relief
Doctor Brent Wild, DPT. IS THE BEST Physical therapist. Very nice, professional, and kind. I have had therapy on my broken wrist and arm. Therapy here is the highlight of my day. The most pleasant, professional & nice smiles. Thank goodness.
Physical therapy with Dr. Eric and his staff was my favorite part of recovery. They helped me through back to back surgeries for both of my hands for a work comp injury. I've been back at work for 3 weeks now and the pain has not returned.

What is the root of my pain?
Most injuries to the elbow, wrist, or hand will result in short-term pain. However, if the pain becomes chronic (lasting longer than three months) you may be dealing with a deeper problem.
The pain you experience may vary from mild to severe, and intermittent. Other symptoms associated with elbow, wrist, and hand pain is a tingling or numbness felt in the upper extremities. This symptom can cause numbness in the fingers making it difficult to perform daily tasks at home or work.
If your pain is affecting your daily life, it is important to schedule an appointment with one of our Riverside, Corona, Chino, Redlands, and Beaumont, CA physical therapists.
What’s causing my elbow, wrist, and hand pain?
Your upper extremities are comprised of numerous joints, bones, muscles, and tendons. Due to the complexity of the upper extremities, it can sometimes be difficult to determine where the pain is originating. A few of the most common conditions resulting in elbow, wrist, and hand pain include:
At the end of everyone’s elbow is a fluid-filled sac called the “bursa.” The “bursa serves as a cushion to the elbow bone, also known as the “ulna.” Bursitis occurs when the bursa is compressed due to an injury or repetitive motion, resulting in pain and swelling. Because of this, it is common to see this condition in athletes and students.
- A tennis player may refer to their pain as “tennis elbow.”
- A golfer may call their elbow pain “golfer’s elbow.”
- And a student may say they have “student’s elbow.”
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS):
The American Physical Therapy Association states that carpal tunnel syndrome impacts approximately 5% of all Americans. The main job of the carpal tunnel is to protect the median nerve on the inside of your wrist, as well as the tendons you use to bend your fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the carpal tunnel becomes constricted or pinched, which can result in pain within the nerve that can stretch throughout your entire arm. A constricted carpal tunnel is typically caused by an injury or by repetitive job-related use, such as assembly-line work, keyboard-heavy work, or driving heavy machinery.
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome:
Much like carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome is another common form of nerve damage that can lead to elbow, wrist, and hand pain. Repetitive pressure on the ulnar nerve causes carpal tunnel. Pressure on the cubital tunnel and surrounding nerves also causes tingling, numbness, and pain.
Arthritis affects approximately 53 million Americans. In fact, according to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis is the most common form of disability in the United States. There are many causes for Arthritis, but the common cause is by repetitive motions or an injury that impacts the cartilage within the joints of your elbow, wrist, or hand.
Sprains and strains to the elbow, wrist, or hand can also result in pain.
