Wrist Pain Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for wrist pain. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "wrist pain" is rarely designed with the resulting "wrist pain" exclusively in mind.
