When spinal bones are misaligned, pain and dysfunction are often the result. The tiny bones of our hands and wrists are no different. When they are out of place, the results are often uncomfortable and painful—and often misdiagnosed. Many people end up relying on painkillers for immediate relief, but that does not solve the cause of the problem. There are many issues that originate in the hands and wrists that can be avoided or resolved with proper chiropractic adjustment.
To help eliminate wrist and hand pain, request an appointment at Myshka Chiropractic for expert chiropractic care!
What Causes Hand and Wrist Pain?
There are 26 little bones in every hand. Every day, we put a tremendous amount of stress on these extremities, from carrying heavy things, to typing on our phones and computers for hours at a time. It’s no wonder that sometimes they are pushed and pulled out of their natural position. Along with overuse and strain, other common causes of hand and wrist pain include injuries like fractures, dislocation, broken bones, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Osteoarthritis.
Relief for Hand and Wrist Pain with Chiropractic Care
Though most people think of spinal adjustments when they consider chiropractic care, joints in the hands, elbows, shoulders, wrists, knees, and ankles are often a source of pain. In fact, it is not uncommon for misaligned bones in the extremities to be the source of back pain and other discomforts.
Gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments to the wrists and hands can make a world of difference when it comes to alleviating pain and helping your body to function properly. Dr. Susan Myshka provides hand and wrist adjustments that restore function, provide relief, and address the cause, not the symptoms, of the problem. By adjusting the bones in the hands and wrists, the joints are able to move in their full range of motion, pain is alleviated, and inflammation is reduced or eliminated in the surrounding tissues.
Dr. Myshka also uses cold laser treatments, which can help accelerate the body’s healing process and alleviate pain.
Some common symptoms of hand and wrist pain include:
- Twinges of pain
- Burning in the joints
- Difficulty moving/stiffness
- Limited range of motion
You do not have to deal with ongoing pain and discomfort. Our experienced, local Jonesboro chiropractor can work with your body and make the necessary chiropractic adjustments that can relieve your pain. Unlike pain relief drug medications that simply mask the pain and can be extremely addictive, chiropractic care is a non-addictive treatment that heals the body from within.
Chiropractor for Hands
Sometimes problems with the hands start slowly—stiff, sore hands with painful twinges can come and go and slow you down but you may shrug them off. If the issue becomes constant, threatening normal functioning with an ongoing current of pain, you should see a chiropractor as soon as possible. Chiropractic care can treat pain associated with common hand, wrist, and thumb problems.
When hand bones are out of place, the following conditions can occur:
- Median Nerve Entrapment
- Ulnar Nerve Entrapment
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Trigger Finger
- Ganglion Cysts
- De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
- Shoulder Pain
