Try to avoid hand and wrist movements that can cause pain
and other symptoms.
If you suspect that your hand or wrist pain is work-related, you may
need to talk with your workplace safety officer about changes in equipment or
rotating some of your duties. Make sure that new work changes don't cause other
wrist problems or make your condition worse.
