Hand and wrist injuries are often overshadowed by other types of musculoskeletal pain, but the truth is that millions of people suffer from hand and wrist discomfort every day. Symptoms may develop gradually – such as in the case of a repetitive use injury, or they may develop suddenly – such as with an acute injury. Regardless of how or why hand and wrist pain develop, chiropractic treatment can be an influential tool in managing discomfort and preventing symptoms from worsening over time.
Chiropractic Treatment for Wrist and Hand Pain
The initial goal of chiropractic treatment is to determine the source of pain. Among patients with hand and wrist pain, many suffer from a condition known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Widely recognized as an occupational disease, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can occur as a result of repetitive motions or certain diseases like arthritis or multiple myeloma. The most common symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include tingling, numbness, swelling, and intense pain.
At our office, we believe that the overall health of the spine and musculoskeletal system can contribute to the development of hand and wrist pain. By using chiropractic adjustments to facilitate good posture and joint alignment, we can help reduce stress on the nerves that are responsible for discomfort.
