At Weiss Chiropractic, there are numerous reasons why individuals and families in the local Golden and Denver areas have come to rely on us for their healthcare needs. One of the most common reasons why people call us to make an appointment has to do with pain. Pain can show up anywhere throughout the body. Some of the most common locations in which we treat pain include the head, back, neck, knees, and wrists. If someone has wrist pain, this can make it hard to type, eat, read, and write. For this reason, our wrist pain doctor provides a number of treatment options, including chiropractic care, to those in need.

Common Causes and Symptoms of Wrist Pain

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:  Without a doubt, this is one of the most common causes of wrist pain. The carpal tunnel is a small area in the wrist that is bordered by a layer of fascia. Sometimes, this layer of fascia can become inflamed. This often develops due to overuse of the wrist, such as in typing for hours on end. When this happens, the median nerve that passes through the carpal tunnel can get compressed. This leads to shooting pains that travel down the wrist into the hand. It can also lead to numbness and tingling.

Arthritis: Arthritis is another common cause of wrist pain. Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that leads to the degradation of cartilage that usually cushions the bones of the hand and wrist. When this happens, the bones start to rub up against each other. The end result is wrist pain that might make it hard to move the hand and wrist from side to side.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: Finally, this condition is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome develops when the cubital tunnel in the wrist becomes inflamed, compressing the ulnar nerve. This condition often develops in sports such as tennis, golf, and baseball. The symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome are similar to those of carpal tunnel; however, they tend to show up on the back of the hand instead of the palmar side.

These are only a few of the many reasons why someone might have wrist pain. Fortunately, there are a number of possible wrist pain treatment options a chiropractor can provide.

Wrist Pain Relief & Treatment 

A chiropractor can provide a number of treatment and wrist pain relief options. A chiropractor can take a look at the alignment of someone’s wrist, hand, shoulder, and spine. Then, if any of these joints are out of alignment, a chiropractor can make adjustments to improve someone’s alignment. This can help someone recover. In addition, there are a number of other non-surgical and drug-free treatment options available near you.
