Ulnar Wrist Pain

Ulnar Wrist Pain

Ulnar wrist pain occurs on the pinkie side of your wrist. It is named after the ulna bone, which lies on the pinkie side of the forearm. Ulnar wrist pain can have several causes. It can also lead to other symptoms, such as popping or clicking of the joints, numbness, and swelling. The exact cause can be difficult to diagnose because of the variety of possible reasons. However, we can analyze and treat your ulnar wrist pain. 

Symptoms and Causes of Ulnar Wrist Pain

Ulnar wrist pain can be more than just pain on the pinkie side of the wrist. It can be accompanied or preceded by other symptoms. This can include popping at the joint with excessive movement or pressure, losing grip strength on the pinkie side, or losing movement in the wrist. 

There can be several reasons for ulnar wrist pain. These include:

  • Arthritis
  • Wrist fracture
  • Infection
  • Nerve compression
  • Nerve injury
  • Cartilage damage
  • Ulnar impaction syndrome
