Common Work-Related Wrist Injuries

Wrist problems at work are more common than people realize. Just like other areas of your body, it’s essential to take good care of your wrists, hands, and fingers to avoid a painful injury at work.

Repetitive motions lead to carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis that cause pain in your wrist and fingers. Overusing your fingers and hands during the 40-hour work week causes flare-ups that can lead to tendonitis.  

Tripping or falling can cause a wrist injury that leaves you wearing a brace. 

Carpal Tunnel

Your carpal tunnel is the passageway between your palm and your wrist. It’s made up of different bones, ligaments, and a median nerve. This nerve controls sensation in movement in your thumb and first three fingers.

Carpel tunnel syndrome occurs when your median nerve is pinched. It causes numbness, tingling, and weakness that spreads from your wrist to your fingers. Many people describe the pain as a “pins-and-needles” sensation.

Carpel tunnel syndrome is most common in people who use their hands for work. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome makes your wrist and fingers weak. The condition makes it difficult to type, write, hold things, and drive. 

With regular sport massage therapy for Carpel Tunnel symptoms, the deep tissue massage will release the tension, adhesion and trigger points of the soft tissues of the shoulder, full arm and hand.
