Elbow, Hand & Wrist Pain

Home | Areas We Treat | Elbow, Hand & Wrist Pain

If you’re dealing with elbow, hand, and wrist pain, you’re not alone. Elbow, hand, and wrist pain affects people of all ages for numerous underlying reasons, such as injuries, bursitis, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and more. Marin Regenerative Health diagnoses and treats the root cause of your chronic pain using cutting-edge regenerative solutions — no drugs or surgeries.

No Surgeries, No Drugs

Everyone wants to lead a pain-free life. You want your body to perform optimally without relying on pain medications and opioids just to get through the day. Conventional medicine falls short when treating the root cause of chronic pain, relying primarily on medications or surgeries. We take an alternative, groundbreaking approach to pain management. We offer non-surgical treatments that stimulate natural cellular regeneration and healing to help you lead a pain-free life.

Causes of Elbow, Hand & Wrist Pain


Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. Bursitis often develops as a result of repetitive motions or positions that put pressure on the bursae.

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a condition in which the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow become damaged and painful. Tennis elbow is caused by repetitive motions of the arm and wrist, such as those often used in tennis.

Sprains & Strains

Sprains and strains are injuries to the muscles and tendons. Sprains occur when the ligaments that connect bones are stretched or torn. Strains occur when the muscles are stretched or torn. Both sprains and strains can be caused by sudden movements or overuse.


Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones begins to break down. When the elbow joint’s cartilage weakens, you may suffer from increased pain, stiffness, and swelling.

Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is a condition in which the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the inside of the elbow become damaged and painful. The condition is often seen in golfers, but it can affect anyone who performs repeated motions with their arms and elbows.

Wrist Tendonitis

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon, and the tendons in the wrist are often affected. This can be caused by repetitive motions of the wrist, such as typing or playing sports, or by an injury. The pain of wrist tendonitis is often worse with activity, and you may notice swelling and tenderness in the affected area.

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is an inflammation of the tendons in the thumb. This can be caused by repetitive motions of the thumb or by an injury. The pain is often worse with activity, and you may notice swelling and tenderness in the affected area.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel, a small space in the wrist. The median nerve controls movement and sensation in the thumb and first two fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by repetitive motions of the wrist, such as typing or texting.

Trigger Finger

A trigger finger is a condition in which the finger is locked in a bent position. The condition is caused by inflammation of the tendons that control the finger. Symptoms of a trigger finger include pain, stiffness, and a clicking or popping sensation when the finger is moved.

Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion cysts are benign (non-cancerous) growths that often develop on the back of the hand or wrist. Ganglion cysts are not cancerous, but they can be painful. Symptoms of ganglion cysts include a lump or mass on the hand or wrist, pain, and numbness.

Treatments for Elbow, Hand & Wrist Pain

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free solution for medical conditions including ED and musculoskeletal problems. It delivers high-energy sound waves to stimulate natural cellular regeneration, resulting in faster healing of injured tissues. Unlike traditional treatments, shockwave therapy is drug-free and offers a cutting-edge, natural way to treat medical conditions. Its non-invasive approach makes it a safer and more comfortable option for patients.

PRP Injections

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration of platelets derived from your own blood. These platelets contain high levels of growth factors that can help to promote healing. PRP injections can treat numerous conditions, including tendonitis, ligament sprains, and arthritis.

Treatment With Growth Factors

Treatment with growth factors is a type of cell with the ability to develop into other types of cells. This makes them ideal for treating injuries, as they can repair or replace damaged tissues. Treatment with growth factors can treat numerous conditions responsible for elbow, hand, or wrist pain, such as tendonitis, arthritis, and nerve damage.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are trained to identify and treat problems with the musculoskeletal system. They use various techniques, including adjustments, manipulation, electrical stimulation, and massage, to treat conditions such as tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis.


Orthobiologics is a groundbreaking field of medicine that uses biological therapies to treat orthopedic conditions. Orthobiologics uses naturally-derived substances, such as growth factors and proteins, to stimulate natural tissue healing and regeneration.
