Chiropractor for Wrist Pain Treatment and Relief
Are you experiencing wrist pain that won’t go away?
Pain and numbness in the hand or wrist are often diagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition occurs when the nerve and tendons that pass through the wrist are irritated or compressed due to a lack of space or overuse.
Did you know that you can experience pain or numbness in the wrists or hands without having a problem in the carpal tunnel? Often times, these symptoms are a result of problems in other areas of the arm, such as the elbow or shoulder. Most commonly, however, the problem exists in the neck. When the nerves in the neck are pinched due to spinal misalignments, they can refer pain or numbness down the arm into the wrist or hand. If you experience these symptoms, it is important to determine what is causing the problem.
Treat the cause, not the symptoms
A thorough evaluation by Dr. Pettis can determine where the problem is located and whether chiropractic care can help, or if referral to an appropriate specialist is necessary.
