office worker with writst painAre you or someone you know experiencing wrist pain? It’s more common than you might think, and the causes can vary. At Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness, our team of experienced chiropractors understands the complexity of wrist pain and provides a comprehensive approach to care that sets us apart from other practices.

What’s Really Causing Your Wrist Pain?

Wrist pain is far from a one-size-fits-all condition. It may stem from various underlying causes, making obtaining an accurate diagnosis and tailored therapy imperative. At our practice, we’re skilled in the intricacies of wrist pain, addressing key factors to set us apart in delivering exceptional care. The most common issues are

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome—one of the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions is carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is a ligament in the wrist that can compress the median nerve, leading to hand problems. True carpal tunnel syndrome causes numbness in the four fingers, excluding the thumb. If you’re experiencing numbness or tingling in your thumb, it’s likely not carpal tunnel.
  • Pronator Teres Syndrome—many individuals suffer from pronator teres syndrome, where the median nerve gets irritated in the forearm. This often mimics carpal tunnel symptoms, especially when your hands are in a typing position. Our doctors are skilled at identifying and addressing this issue.
  • Double Crush Syndrome—some individuals may even have Double Crush Syndrome, where multiple areas along the median nerve’s path are compressed, further complicating the diagnosis and treatment.

When you suspect carpal tunnel syndrome or encounter symptoms such as numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation in your hand, it’s crucial to seek help promptly. Nerve issues left untreated for more than two months may lead to permanent damage, even after surgery. We strongly recommend exploring chiropractic care before considering surgical options.

Getting to the Source of Your Pain

At our practice, our highly experienced chiropractors employ a comprehensive diagnostic
process that sets us apart. Wrist pain isn’t confined to a single point; it may result from multiple areas of compression.

Our team conducts a thorough physical examination to pinpoint the source of your wrist pain. This involves pressing on specific areas, testing muscle strength, and evaluating sensitivity. Addressing all potential sources is essential for the successful resolution of your issue. Our commitment to accurate diagnosis ensures you receive the care you need.

Why Choose Us for Wrist Pain?

Our chiropractors have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating wrist pain. Many doctors may not fully comprehend the nuances of wrist conditions, leading to frequent misdiagnosis and improper treatment. We specialize in extremity adjustments and have developed unique wrist adjustment techniques that consistently yield remarkable results.

Another condition patients may experience is clicking and popping wrist joints. While not painful, they can certainly be annoying! This can happen in any joint and is caused by little tendons rolling over other tendons. As long as there’s no pain, this is normal, if it becomes painful, give us a call right away.

Beyond symptom relief, our focus is identifying and addressing the root cause of your wrist pain. Our team knows how to differentiate between various wrist issues, ensuring you receive the right care from the start.
