Chiropractic for Wrist Pains

What does a chiropractor do to treat carpal tunnel syndrome and relieve symptoms?

Chiropractors have considerable experience in treating nerve-related injuries. Using special techniques like deep tissue manipulation, therapeutic massage, gentle stretching exercises are usually part of an effective treatment plan for carpal tunnel syndrome. Bracing, use of ice packs and ultrasound treatments may also be prescribed. Often, there are additional nerve-related issues further along the arm and even into the cervical spine (the portion of the spine located in the neck).

Some of the common symptoms of wrist pain include:

  •  Numbness
  •  Swelling    
  •  Tingling
  •  Stiffness

While the minor sprains will respond to over-the-counter medication, there will be instances where the expertise of a qualified doctor will be needed. If untreated, the wrists are likely to become inflamed and there will be an increase in pain intensity. You can use a wrist brace to help in providing support and keeping the wrist in a neutral and pain-free position. How the problem came about will play a significant role in providing chiropractic treatment. Depending on our findings, it could be more appropriate to refer you to another medical practitioner who is able to handle the problem better. This is because not all wrist pain patients can benefit from a chiropractic adjustment.

When you arrive at our office for wrist pain treatment, our focus will be on getting to the bottom of the cause. We will first examine if there is a misaligned vertebra in the neck. The next step will be to check for the range of motion as the vertebrae could be affecting the nerve root, therefore deflecting the pain to the arm and hand. We will then continue to do the evaluation on the wrist itself in order to test the integrity and flexibility of the joints. There could be a handful of common causes of wrist pain but you can be sure that we will get to the root cause before providing a remedy. You could be experiencing tingling sensations when the pressure is applied to your wrist during treatment. In such cases, we’ll use an instrument so that there is little force with the adjustment. You need to get an accurate diagnosis for wrist pain from a qualified medical professional if you’re to see any kind of relief. If you’re experiencing any kind of a pain in the wrist, it is important that you’re getting in touch with a chiropractor as soon as possible.

We can help with pain relief so that you’re getting back to your normal routine as the functioning of the wrist will be restored. We not only address the symptoms but the root cause of the problem. It is crucial that you’re not delaying another minute as the pain could manifest itself to other parts of the body. The affected joint will be corrected so that proper body functionality is being restored.

Using hands-on evaluation methods, a chiropractor can also determine if additional issues are present so symptoms can be treated and corrected at their source for long-lasting relief.
