Watch the McCains discuss the injury at a press conference Wednesday.
(CNN) - Cindy McCain visited a Michigan hospital after a campaign event Wednesday, complaining of pain in her hand.
"At some point during the rope line an enthusiastic supporter shook Mrs. McCain’s hand and exacerbated an existing carpal tunnel condition,” said spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. “Out of an abundance of caution, she decided to leave the event and visit the local hospital for x-rays where she was treated for a minor sprain."
UPDATE: The campaign reports that Cindy McCain will return to active campaigning on Thursday.
Cindy McCain, who has a brace on her right arm, told reporters she was "fine." Her husband said Wednesday afternoon that someone shook her hand "too vigorously."
Guys, we're too vicious. Leave her alone. This isn't news and it doesn't warrant hateful comments. Let's rise above it.
I'm not a fan of McCain's, but Cindy's done some good things... she's a lot better than her husband, so I'm sorry she got a sore hand from this, and hope she gets better soon.
Hey, at least it happened before her husband could get in there and destroy the nation's health care system!
I'm sure it was an Obama supporter who tried to do her bodily harm by squeezing her hand too hard.
