Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
One of the more common causes of wrist pain is carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition affects millions of Americans by causing numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and wrist area. It is typically caused by repetitive wrist motions. The carpal ligament gets compressed and pinches the median nerve.

- Pain from your wrist to your arm
