Wrist and hand overuse syndromes.

Overuse syndromes in the wrist or hand can occur from repetitive use of the wrist and hand or from recurrent direct trauma to the hand area. Tendinitis syndromes due to overstretching or shear stress are seen commonly on both the extensor and flexor sides of the wrist. Overuse syndromes also can take the form of neurovascular syndromes, resulting in compression syndromes of the median, ulnar, and superficial branch of the radial nerve in the wrist area and trauma to the ulnar and digital vessels supplying the hand. Treatment in most cases involves rest with splinting, icing, and NSAIDs in acute cases, although surgical decompression is indicated in chronic or recurrent cases.
