Wrist pain, tingling, numbness and weakness can keep you from working and enjoying a wellness-filled life until you get pain relief. Over-the-counter painkillers only mask the discomfort, however. And getting the right kind of treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis of the wrist injury. While carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common types of wrist pain, there are many others. Your Irvine chiropractor Dr. John Lee can accurately diagnose and successfully treat the vast majority of the underlying causes for lasting relief.
The following types of wrist pain and injury respond very well to chiropractic care, physiotherapy, therapeutic exercises, massage therapy and the ergonomics treatment Dr. Lee provides. A combination of these natural, drug-free, non-invasive techniques usually resolve wrist pain entirely, improve range of motion and help you get back to an active, wellness-focused lifestyle. These are the most common types of wrist pain that our chiropractor regularly treats:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome—Inflammation of the tissues inside of the bony carpal tunnel compresses the median nerve, causing shooting pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the wrist and hands. Gripping objects can be difficult; often results from overuse injury, a subluxation in the neck, particularly poor ergonomics at your desk or while using mobile devices.
Strained or Sprained Wrist—These wrist injuries commonly happen when you fall and bend your wrist back suddenly, causing sudden torque. A sprain is a ligament injury, while a strain is an injury of the muscles and tendons. Chiropractic, massage and physiotherapy provide successful treatment of both types of injury.
Tendonitis—Tendons in the wrist can become chronically inflamed after injury or overuse. Instead of tendons sliding past each other smoothly, the inflammation causes pain and stiffness. Dr. Lee successfully treats many patients with this condition.
Bursitis—The fluid-filled sacs (bursa) that enable fluid movement of wrist tissues can become inflamed from excess pressure, overuse and injury. Our chiropractor can provide excellent natural treatment for pain relief, healing and wellness.
Don’t let wrist pain interrupt your work, exercise and lifestyle. Usually, a conservative course of chiropractic care, massage therapy, therapeutic exercise and ergonomics adjustments at home or at work can resolve wrist pain naturally.
