Wrist Pain Treatment

Wrist Pain Treatment

Wrist pain is more than just discomfort – it can profoundly impact your daily life, hindering simple tasks and diminishing your overall quality of life. Pain can be severe, caused by repetitive strain, injuries, or underlying medical disorders. At Aloha Sports Chiropractic, my team and I understand the importance of finding practical solutions to alleviate wrist pain and restore optimal function. Chiropractic treatment for wrist pain in Santa Cruz has emerged as a robust and comprehensive strategy to address the underlying reasons for wrist discomfort, encouraging healing and improving general well-being.

Symptoms of Wrist Pain

Wrist pain manifests in various ways, making recognizing its symptoms early on crucial. Common signs include:

1. Limited range of motion

One of the primary symptoms of wrist pain is limited range of motion. This means that movements such as bending, straightening, or rotating become difficult and uncomfortable – this restriction may make everyday tasks like typing difficult as well as opening jars impossible. Such restrictions could be due to inflammation, injury or arthritis affecting joints and tendons within the wrist area.

2. Persistent ache or throbbing sensation

Persistent wrist discomfort is another key indicator. This pain may be continuous or intermittent, worsening with use and alleviating with rest, with both dull and acute symptoms possible depending on its source; conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis or fractures are common culprits that contribute to this discomfort, making it hard to focus on tasks or recreational activities.

3. Swelling or tenderness

Individuals experiencing wrist pain often report swelling or tenderness around their wrist joint as symptoms. Swelling may appear as visible puffiness or increase in size of wrist. Tenderness on the other hand is usually felt when touching or pressing on affected area; tenderness often indicates inflammation, injury such as a sprain or strain and can also occur from repetitive stress injuries or infections requiring medical care.

4. Numbness or tingling

Numbness or tingling in the wrist and hand, also referred to as a “pins and needles” sensation, is another symptom of wrist pain that needs immediate medical treatment. This phenomenon often results from nerve compression or irritation such as carpal tunnel syndrome where median nerve is compressed. Numbness and tingling often manifest themselves through decreased hand function and dexterity as fingers and thumb are affected. Furthermore, this sensation might indicate nerve damage or chronic conditions requiring prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Understanding these symptoms can assist in pinpointing the source of wrist pain and seeking necessary medical intervention to prevent further complications and increase quality of life.

Identifying these symptoms is an initial step toward receiving early and proper treatment.

How is wrist pain treated?

Rest: Take time off work, hobbies or sports that caused your wrist injury to allow it to heal properly.
Icing: Apply an ice pack or cold compress for 10-15 minutes several times each day for 10 to 15 minutes. The time for maximum benefit. When applying cold therapies directly onto your skin, take care to do it carefully!
Ergonomic adjustments: Shifting your hand’s position when performing repetitive motions can relieve strain on the wrist that’s causing pain.

Surgery: You may need surgery to remove a growth or repair nerve compression, tendon or ligament tears, fix fractures or treat arthritis. Wrist surgery can be open or arthroscopic.
