When you consider the array of precise and specialized movements our hand and wrist allow us to perform on any given day, the intricacies of the joint and surrounding structures should come as no surprise. The hand and wrist are made up of several bones, muscles, and ligaments that work together, enabling us to carry out everyday tasks such as writing, playing an instrument, and even brushing your teeth. Though we often perform these tasks without a second thought, a closer look will reveal much more complexity than you may realize.
Carrying out any of these very precise movements requires the cooperation of numerous parts that make up the wrist and hand. Along with tendons that attach muscle to bone, ligaments that connect bones to one another, and cartilage that reduces friction, the complex joint is made up of a collection of small bones that allow a wide range of motion to take place. This extensive motion also occurs with the help of various muscles that keep the wrist and hand stable and aligned. The primary purpose of this complex joint is to link the hand and lower arm in a way that allows the joint to remain strong, steady, and functional.
Though the swiveling and pivoting capacity of the joint allows us a wider range of motion, the constant, repetitive movement and high level of involvement can lead to injury or normal wear and tear. The damage and pain that then ensue can make even the most seemingly simple tasks painful and difficult. Here at New You Stem Cell Center, we’re committed to increasing the functionality of the damaged joint. By working together with the body’s own natural resources and processes, we address wrist pain and hand pain at the source, providing long-term healing and repair.
Conditions of the Wrist and Hand That Can Cause Pain
As an extensively exercised part of the body, the hand and wrist are exposed to a number of internal as well as external factors that can lead to pain and degeneration. While its high level of involvement can lead to injury and the wearing down of the joint, internal factors such as time and aging can have an effect on the vitality of the joint. Below is a list of several internal and external-caused conditions that can lead to wrist pain and hand pain:
- Hand Arthritis
- Basal Joint Arthritis
- Carpometacarpal Arthritis
- TFCC Tear
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

How PRP Can Help with Wrist Pain and Hand Pain
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a treatment option that is gaining growing recognition for its capacity to heal damaged tissue. The regenerative injection treatment works closely with the body’s natural healing process to rebuild or repair what has been lost or broken due to injury or normal wear and tear surrounding the joint. Once a blood sample is taken from a patient, the platelet-rich portion of the blood is separated and injected into the damaged area of the joint. While the body’s natural response to damage is to flood the troubled area with new, healthy cells, the procedure does its part to accelerate the process. This happens because of the high concentration of healing proteins and growth factors that are found in the platelet-rich portion of the blood. Once injected, these potent proteins begin rebuilding, while signaling other base cells to do the same. For wrist pain and hand pain, as well as any other joint pain, PRP treatments increase the body’s effectiveness to rebuild tissue, eliminating pain in the process.
While other treatments are more traditionally utilized to address joint pain and weakness, they fail at attacking pain at the source. Platelet-rich plasma therapy continues to deliver results that correlate with long-term healing and increased function of the troubled joint.
