Persistent or intermittent hand or wrist pain, ranging from dull aches to sharp, shooting sensations, often worsened with movement or specific activities.

Pain Management Treatment Options

At Kennedy Health, we offer a range of treatment options to effectively manage hand and wrist pain:

Medication Management

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), pain medications, corticosteroids, or disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) may be prescribed to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and improve hand and wrist function.

Physical Therapy

Our experienced physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to improve hand and wrist strength, flexibility, and coordination, reducing pain and enhancing mobility.

Splinting or Bracing

Custom splints or braces can provide support, immobilization, and pain relief for certain hand or wrist conditions.


Intra-articular injections, such as corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid, may be recommended to provide localized pain relief, reduce inflammation, and improve joint function.

Lifestyle Modifications

Our medical professionals provide guidance on modifying activities, ergonomic adjustments, and techniques to avoid repetitive stress on the elbow joint.

Surgical Intervention

In severe cases where conservative treatments are ineffective, surgical options, such as carpal tunnel release, joint fusion, or joint replacement, may be considered to alleviate pain and restore function.

Our medical professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a review of your medical history and diagnostic tests (such as X-rays, MRI, or ultrasound), to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific type and severity of hand and wrist pain. We prioritize personalized care and work closely with you to develop a comprehensive approach to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
