We use our hands and wrists for everything we do. Therefore, wrist pain has a drastic effect on your ability to do even the simplest of daily tasks. If wrist pain goes untreated, it can cause long term injury because your wrist cannot heal on its own. Read on to find out how a chiropractic wrist adjustment might help.
We use our hands and wrist every day. Therefore, having wrist pain or wrist weakness can drastically effect day to day like. Even the simplest of daily tasks e.g. opening a jar of food, can be challenging. If wrist pain foes untreated, it can cause chronic injury which makes it difficult to heal on its own. Although our hands and wrists seem strong, they are incredibly delicate.
The cause of wrist pain can be something as simple as repeated movement of your wrist, a common error that is easy to miss until it’s too late. Other causes may include:
- chronic diseases like diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis.
Symptoms of wrist pain include burning, numbness, stiffness, tingling, and soreness. When sharp pain and stress worsen, ice and pain relievers are no longer an option, it might be time for a chiropractic wrist adjustment.
How can a chiropractic wrist adjustment help with wrist pain?
The most common chiropractic treatments for wrist pain are adjustment of the joints and physical therapy. As with all chiropractic treatment, the focus is on your individual needs and goals. For your first consultation, the chiropractor will talk to you about your symptoms and follow up with a physical exam. This will allow the chiropractor to identify the problem, then develop an idea of the treatment needed and create a strategy for your care.
Dr. Anika, who is based at our chiropractic clinic in central London, and is considered one of the best chiropractors in London, has told us about two therapies (see below) that are both going to help your wrist restore its strength, and relieve your pain.
Chiropractic wrist adjustment
By manipulating the bones of the wrist to put them back into the correct place, the physician sets the healing process into motion. If a bone is out of place in your wrist, inflammation can build up and create a lot of pressure that can quickly spread to your hands or arms. This swelling heavily restricts the movement of your upper body.
The realigning of bones during chiropractic care acts as a catalyst in your healing– as your bones realign, inflammation in the soft tissue of your wrist is dramatically reduced. As tension releases in your wrist, you can not only get back to feeling better but back to feeling like your normal self again.
Besides manipulating the bones, chiropractors may also use stretching techniques to help release tension in your wrist in order to ease pain and reduce the tightness in inflamed ligaments. Some examples include a wrist rotation, hand clenching, wrist flexion, and finger flexion. These all involve the tightening and releasing of your muscles and tendons.
The best part about these techniques is that they not only improve your health but can actually make you stronger by restoring muscle flow. This kind of therapy can improve your grip strength.
Another benefit of chiropractic is that the strengthening of your wrists reduces the likelihood of injury in the future. This is just another reason why athletes swear by chiropractic practice. They stay healthy and get stronger through this simple but effective healing process.
