I came across a tweet the other day saying “the wrist pain, it’s either a trapped nerve or carpal tunnel”. This got me thinking:
- Do most people with wrist pain think a trapped nerve is different from carpal tunnel syndrome?
- Do they know that in a way these two situations are different, but also not?
Does that sounds confusing to read? Sorry, let me explain my thinking to you.
Today I want to look at wrist pain from the angle of a trapped nerve being the source of pain. Below I will discuss the difference between a trapped nerve in wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. I will then show you how ultimately they are related and how to treat your wrist pain.
