Wrist and Shoulder Pain: Common Causes and Treatment Options

For athletes, wrist and shoulder pain can be more than just a nuisance—it can hinder performance and sideline them from the sports they love. Understanding the root causes and effective treatment options for wrist and shoulder pain is essential for getting back into the game promptly. Our physical therapy and sports medicine experts can offer specialized treatments for athletes needing rehabilitative support and advice on preventing future sports injuries.

Common Causes of Wrist and Shoulder Pain in Athletes:

  • Intense training regimens, repetitive motions, and the demands of athletic competition can strain the wrists and shoulders, leading to overuse injuries (tendonitis, rotator cuff strains, etc.)
  • High-impact sports or contact sports increase the risk of traumatic injuries, including wrist sprains, shoulder dislocations, or labrum tears.
  • Incorrect form or improper technique during athletic activities can contribute to wrist and shoulder pain, as muscles and joints suffer from undue stress.
  • Muscle imbalances around the shoulder and wrist joints can lead to instability and pain during athletic movements.
