arm pain

The cause of arm pain is highly variable and likely from multiple sources. As physical therapists, we are challenged with determining whether arm, wrist, or hand pain is coming from the neck, upper back, or within the structures themselves. Often, it may be a combination of all the above. For example, decreased activation and control of muscles between your upper back and shoulder blade may be contributing to that nagging elbow pain. Pain in your hand, such as symptoms consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome, may actually be coming from anywhere between your neck and wrist. A Move Physical Therapy, we take a closer look at all the regions that may be playing a role in your arm, wrist, or hand pain.
