Understanding the Complex Issues of Wrist Pain

Your wrist is complex, composed of multiple bones and ligaments, each susceptible to various conditions and injuries. Arthritis (in its many forms), ligament tear, or even a broken bone triggered by a seemingly inconsequential fall are just a few possibilities. Dr. Ichtertz at one of our Nebraska locations can accurately diagnose and treat these concerns. 

Wrist Clots and Wrist Pressure

The frequent pounding of your hand may lead to a clot in the wrist's main artery, especially if you're a smoker. This condition, hypothenar hammer syndrome, can cause extreme pain and small ulcers on your fingertips. Meanwhile, median nerve pressure could result in carpal tunnel syndrome, characterized by pain, numbness, tingling, and clumsiness. By choosing the Omaha wrist specialists at Nebraska Hand & Shoulder, you can alleviate these issues.

Treatment for Preiser's Syndrome

Preiser's syndrome, triggered by blood supply loss to your wrist's main bone (scaphoid), causes significant pain on the thumb side of your wrist. Kienböck's "disease" arises from the loss of blood supply to the lunate on the pinky side of your wrist. The most frequently broken wrist bone–the scaphoid–often goes undiagnosed in the initial weeks following injury. Prompt attention from a wrist surgeon can identify and correct these issues.

Nerve Pain: Ganglion and Its Effects

A ganglion, or lump, on the top side of your wrist, may pinch the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN), leading to localized pain. A wrist doctor specializing in such conditions can help bring relief.
