Our Approach To Wrist & Hand Repetitive Use Injuries

What Sets Us Apart

NYU Langone orthopedists frequently treat people who have a repetitive use injury to the hand and wrist. These injuries are often the result of participation in sports, such as tennis, golf, or baseball, that require the repetition of a specific movement. However, they may occur in anyone who performs a repetitive movement daily, such as typing, knitting, or lifting a baby.

Our orthopedists diagnose and treat people with many types of overuse injuries to the hand and wrist, including tendinitis, de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, stenosing tenosynovitis, capsulitis, and muscle or tendon strains

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment may include resting the injured hand or wrist and taking over-the-counter pain medications. Our doctors may also recommend a corticosteroid injection to reduce inflammation. Physical and occupational therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation can help you to regain use of your hand or wrist and return to your daily activities without pain.
