Wrist and Hand Pain Relief in Greenville, SC

A chiropractor can offer wrist and hand pain relief with adjustments and soft tissue therapy. To most, it may not occur to them that chiropractors are fully trained in assessing and treating pain in the hands and wrists but- in fact- they offer numerous adjusting and manual therapy techniques that are often required to regain full joint mobility! Unfortunately many clinical settings do not recognize chiropractic care as an obvious option for rehabilitation for wrists and hands. Without chiropractic care, it will be more difficult for full functionality to return to the affected extremity. 

How is the wrist and hand pain treated/adjusted?

The wrist and the hand have very specific functions and ranges of joint motion. An assessment is made of the injured area and adjustments and other recommendations are utilized in order to assist with a full recovery. Depending on the condition, chiropractors can also give you muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and massage therapy to relieve the pressure in the hand and wrist. Manual therapy (Chiropractic care) is a first step in care for wrist and hand pain. If you are dealing with an injury or chronic pain in your arms and hands you should consider seeing a chiropractor. 

In a majority of cases, painkillers will provide immediate relief but will not solve the underlying condition causing the pain. Another option is surgery! Recent studies have shown that contrary to popular belief, this may not be in your best interest in the long run.
