Intersection Syndrome

Intersection syndrome leads to pain, swelling and occasionally ‘squeaking’ on the back (dorsum) of the wrist. The pain is worse with gripping or lifting. Intersection syndrome is usually due to overuse from activities that require repetitive wrist extension, such as raking leaves, shoveling, rowing, weight lifting or skiing.
