You depend on your hands and arms every day. When issues arise, it can make even simple tasks painful and difficult. This can lead to time off of work, avoidance of painful activities and significant stress. Often the problem may be minor and can be successfully treated with a course of rest, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy. However, in some cases, the underlying cause of pain may be more serious. Regardless of age or activity level, persistent hand, wrist, or elbow pain should be evaluated.
