Common Types and Causes of Wrist Pain

The wrist is a very delicate area where nerves and blood vessels surrounding the bone, tendons, and ligaments meet. Stress or injury to your wrist can inhibit the full activity of your hand and arm–necessary body parts to enjoy daily routine activities. Wrist pain can also reduce productivity in job performance and detracts from your quality and enjoyment of life.

Common causes of wrist pain can include:

  • Sports injuries due to torn ligaments
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Fractures
  • Impact injuries, such as bracing oneself from a fall
  • Injuries resulting from repetitive movements, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Tendonitis
  • Long amounts of time spent on computers or electronic devices.

Wrist pain can feel like dull ache when associated with arthritis, or it can be a sharp, stabbing pain when tendonitis is the cause. Some wrist pain causes numbness and tingling to occur which can radiate up the arm and down into the hand.

If you hurt your wrist in a car accident or you are experiencing wrist pain longer than a few days Getting appropriate chiropractic care will be important for you to make a full recovery.

How Can Wrist Pain Affect Your Life? 

Short Term Impact of wrist Pain

Because our arms, hands, and wrists are used in so many daily activities, having your wrist significantly affected by injury or pain can greatly reduce your productivity and your quality of life. If you are experiencing discomfort for longer than a couple of days we encourage you to visit a Chiropractor to prevent long-term or chronic wrist pain. 

Long Term Impact of wrist Pain

If your wrist pain is interfering with your everyday life and activities, we strongly encourage you to see a chiropractor. Symptoms like numbness or tingling are a sign of a bigger problem particularly if basic hand movement is limited. Regardless of the cause of your wrist pain, if you leave it unresolved for long periods of time it will only increase your risk for chronic pain and disease. 

Lasting Relief From Pain or Discomfort

Chiropractic Care Focused on Bringing You Lasting Relief from Wrist Pain

When a bone is out of place these connective tissues can become inflamed as your wrist tries to overcompensate for the misalignment.

Our team of chiropractors can realign and manipulate the bones in your wrist putting them back into its proper aligned state. After a chiropractic adjustment, your wrist will experience less tension on your ligaments, tendons, and muscles. This will increase blood flow and relieve any added stress on your nerves, and it will improve range of motion and increase your ability to have a speedy recovery.

Through quality chiropractic care, our team can help your wrist feel better. We will do everything we can and are trained to do to resolve your pain and help you gain full use of your wrist. With severe wrist injuries, chiropractic care may not be enough, and we will always be sure to refer you to a certified and trustworthy specialist who can help you make a full recovery.
