Chronic Wrist Pain

I.C.E. DOWN Ice Wraps

Chronic wrist pain is very common, and is often the result of everyday activities. When early wrist pain is ignored the injury can progress to the point that it is very difficult to treat and there may be permanent damage causing chronic pain. Chronic wrist pain can interfere with your daily activities, hobbies, and sports. I.C.E. DOWN can give you relief from chronic wrist pain.

Weakened Ligaments

The wrist is a very complex joint, and the ligaments hold it all together and control the way the bones work together. If one or more of the ligaments are weak instability in the wrist and chronic pain can result. Ligaments can be loose or weak after injury, or you can be born with weak ligaments.

Untreated Injury

If an important ligament is torn or there is a fracture in the wrist, early treatment can correct the problem. However, if the severity of the injury is not known at the time, and the injury is not treated properly it may not heal properly and can cause more serious problems and chronic pain.

Late treatment for these wrist injuries can be far more extensive than what would have been required if the injury had been treated immediately. Unfortunately, treatment at this late stage is not consistently successful in resolving chronic pain.


Osteoarthritis is rare in the wrists unless there has been a prior injury. In osteoarthritis the cartilage which cushions the ends of the bones breaks down, causing inflammation and pain. Osteoarthritis is a progressive degenerative condition.

Autoimmune Conditions

Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which your body starts mistakenly attacking itself. Rheumatoid arthritis is much more common in the wrists than osteoarthritis. It will typically affect both wrists. Fibromyalgia causes inflammation and pain throughout the body. Fibromyalgia can cause pain in your wrists and greatly increases your likelihood of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chronic Tendonitis

Tendonitis can become a chronic condition if the tendon is never allowed to fully heal and there is constant re-injury. Wrist tendonitis is often caused by common, everyday activities, such as computer use, and may even be mistaken for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Once wrist tendonitis sets in it can be difficult to resolve because it is not always realistic to stop the activity which is causing it.
