What causes wrist pain?
Chronic wrist pain can become extremely discomforting after a while. Everyday activities that you took for granted—such as moving your computer mouse, carrying shopping bags or playing tennis—can now become a challenge. In general, there are three main causes:
- Repetitive movement. The most common reason for chronic wrist pain is natural wear and tear. If you spend a lot of time working with your hands and moving your wrist around—for example, painting on canvas or cutting hair—this is the most likely cause for your pain.
- Sports activities. While wrist-intensive sports (such as golf and tennis) are the primary candidates to cause wrist pain, minor strains and sprains can occur during any high-intensity workout.
- Medical conditions. Wrist pain is a primary symptom of a number of diseases, such as forms of arthritis and diabetes. Conditions such as pregnancy and obesity can also lead to wrist pain.
Dr. Otten Explains How Wrist Pain Treatment
Anyone who has ever dealt with wrist pain can testify how uncomfortable daily life can get. They will also probably tell you that whenever they go to a doctor, the solutions offered are limited to physical therapy and surgery. In this interview with Dr. Otten, we found there’s a third option: orthobiologic, naturally regenerative treatment.

“Wrist pain is a serious problem, but surgery isn’t the answer.”
It has long been believed that wrist pain is most effectively addressed via surgical measures. The latest evidence, however, suggests, that not only wrist surgeries are risky, but they lack effectiveness, too:
- According to a 2014 study, out of 340 patients with nerve injury 16.5% of those injuries were caused by a surgical wrist or ankle procedure
- More than 60% of 328 patients have reported experiencing wrist pain, that interferes with daily activities 1 year after a wrist surgery in this 2016 study
- In 2004, a study of 211 wrist joint arthroscopy patients has been conducted. 5.2% of those patients experienced major and minor complications after the surgery
CELLAXYS Wrist Therapy® employs only non-invasive treatments that enhance your body’s ability to heal itself—like stem cell therapy. Instead of risking a complication by performing surgery, our doctors use stem cells—the natural building block of our bodies—to naturally regenerate the damaged knee area.
Stem Cell Therapy Powering Top Athletes
For years now, forms of stem cell therapy have been used by top athletes in adjunction to traditional orthopaedic measures—such as surgery and injections—to heal quicker and grow stronger. Since the late 1990s, a number of leading athletes, including Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriguez, have publically lead the transition away from traditional orthopaedic alternatives such as cortisone (which reduces pain quickly, but damages the joint tissue irreversibly.) With high complication risk and long recovery times of surgery, stem cell therapy has become one of the go-to therapy methods for the sports elite.
With roots in top-level athletics, stem cell therapy focuses on safety and efficiency. Since stem cells are the natural building blocks of our body, there is virtually no risk of rejection; and, since the method is non-invasive, the recovery time is minimal (4-6 weeks).
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Human bodies are made out of small particles called cells—nerve cells, bone cells, blood cells, muscle cells, and so on.
Stem cells are the natural ‘repair’ cells of our bodies. Their ‘job’ is to morph into a type of cell that is damaged and replace it. For example, when you suffer an injury, it is your stem cells that are trying to regenerate the damaged tissue. Stem cells are involved at every stage of human life—right from the conception.
During CELLAXYS Wrist Therapy®, stem cells are harvested from your body, processed into a more concentrated form, and re-injected precisely into the location of the injury (to repair the damage).
This way, your body’s natural healing resources are right where they’re needed most.
Heal, not operate.
