Sometimes wrist and hand pain come from thoracic outlet syndrome.  We can test for it with a nerve tension test (shown in this graphic). If you want to learn how to evaluate the nerves, this DVD Nerve Mobilization teaches that. http://www.realbodywork.com/nerve/nerve.htm

median nerve in the forearm, distal to the elbow joint, branches to the muscles in the superficial and intermediate layers of the forearm. Anterior interosseous nerve innervates the muscles in the deep layer. Palmar branch innervates the skin over the base and central palm. Injury of median nerve leads to Ape Hand/Thumb Deformity.

ULNAR NERVE (aka musician nerve) is CHIEF MUSCLE of HAND - RADIAL NERVE is CHIEF MUSCLE of BACK OF FOREARM -   MEDIAN NERVE (laborers nerve) is CHIEF MUSCLE of FRONT OF FOREARM.  Ring Finger tip is supplied by Median nerve and Ulnar Nerve.   Dorsum of middle finger is supplied by radial nerve and ulnar nerve and median nerve.

View of the wrist showing the flexor retinaculum at the wrist and the carpal tunnel where the median nerve passes and subsequently can become compressed resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed in the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel has rigid, unyielding boundaries and controls the group of muscles at the base of the thumb.
