Many of us fail to realize just how much we use our hands and wrists until they start to give us trouble. They support us in virtually every aspect of our lives. Despite how much we rely on them, however, our wrists are incredibly intricate and fragile systems. Left untreated, wrist pain can morph into a chronic condition, eventually leading to loss of function and potential surgery. Here at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle, your most trusted chiropractor in West Los Angeles and Brentwood area, we can help ensure it never comes to that.
Common Causes of Wrist Pain
As mentioned, the wrist is an intricate system, filled with bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues. Connected to the hand, fingers, elbow, lower and upper arm, and even the spine, it is expected to perform complex movements. As a result, pain in the wrist can stem from a number of different regions and for a variety of reasons, including:
- Natural aging process
- Wear and tear
- Nerve entrapment
- Systemic disease
Chiropractic Care and Wrist Pain
It is a common misconception that wrist pain inevitably leads to surgery. While it is true that it can turn even the simplest of daily tasks into a difficult ordeal, your chiropractor can help you heal holistically. After a thorough evaluation and review of your medical history, your chiropractor will create a treatment plan designed for your individual needs.
Your chiropractor will use a variety of standard chiropractic treatments to treat your wrist pain. This may include joint adjustment, stretching, physical therapy, cold/heat, and immobilization. Should your chiropractor feel an orthopedic evaluation is in order, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
