Hand and wrist pain are common conditions which may develop due to a sudden impact or injury. The wrist joint is made up of bones, ligaments, and connective tissue. As a result, any disease or injury, affecting any aspect of the hand and wrist, results in pain.
Sprains or fractures from unexpected traumas are frequent causes of wrist and hand pain. However, chronic issues, including carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and repetitive stress injuries can also cause wrist and hand pain. Finding the precise reason for wrist and hand pain can be challenging because there are so many possible causes; yet, a correct diagnosis is necessary for effective therapy and healing.
Our standards are unmatched and well-known worldwide at Medcare hospitals in Dubai and Sharjah. We have expended a lot of time and energy to make sure that you are receiving pre-, during, and post care at the top hospital for hand and wrist management.
Not all wrist discomfort needs to be treated by a hand and wrist doctor. Ice, rest, and over-the-counter pain relievers are typically effective treatments for minor sprains and strains. Visit your orthopedic doctor, however, if discomfort and swelling persist for more than a few days or get worse. Ineffective healing, a reduction in range of motion, and long-term impairment might result from delayed diagnosis and treatment.
Medcare’s hospitals in Dubai and Sharjah have qualified hand and wrist doctors who provide accurate and thorough wrist pain diagnosis. Since the wrist is made up of several bones, muscles, and tissues therefore, a comprehensive medical history and physical examination are needed.

Depending on whether your condition is the result of overuse or sports injuries, your hand and wrist doctor might suggest some activity changes. Physical therapy could be used as a result. Athletes may be assigned especial workouts. Wearing a cast or a splint is normally necessary for fractures. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are frequently recommended when the proper diagnosis has been obtained. Injections of cortisone can sometimes be effective anti-inflammatory drugs.
There may be more severe conditions that need surgical treatment. Minimally invasive procedures can be applied under ultrasound guidance (Ultra MIS) or arthroscopy. Surgery to put a small camera within the joint to repair or remove damaged components is called a wrist arthroscopy. Many ultrasound-guided procedures can be performed thru 1 mm incisions (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger digits, ganglions, Dupuytren’s disease, etc..).
