The wrist joint contains the ends of the radius, ulna, and eight carpal bones. This joint was designed to help the hand be capable of moving with a wide range of motion and flexibility. The wrist joint is surrounded by two individual bursa. A bursa is a fluid-filled sack that serves to reduce friction in the joint. The two major bursae of the wrist are the radial and the ulnar.

For some, the problem may be due to a lack of strength in supporting muscles or poor form. The experienced specialists at Redefine Healthcare will use the most advanced diagnostic equipment to identify the exact cause of your symptoms and develop a treatment plan to help you regain strength and range of motion.
Stiffness in the wrist joints, the formation of a small lump on the top of the wrist, and pain in the hand can also occur as a result of an inflammation of a bursa.
In severe cases when the bursa is inflamed and does not respond to conservative treatment, surgery may be necessary. However, bursitis typically subsides after a week or so if the affected bursa is left to recover.
