About the Wrist
The wrist contains eight small bones and the carpal tunnel. Tendons and nerves are inside of the carpal tunnel. The wrists are susceptible to overuse injuries or repetitive injuries, such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, as a result of certain motions during sports, job duties, and everyday activities.
Problems in the muscles and joints, such as arthritis, can cause pain and restrict motion. A broken wrist is one of the most common types of fall-related fractures. The orthopedic surgeons at Greater Chesapeake Hand Specialists in Maryland have expertise in diagnosing and treating wrist conditions with advanced nonsurgical techniques and state-of-the-art surgical care, including endoscopic release for carpal tunnel syndrome and wrist joint replacement.
