Hand Pain Treatment

With hand pain, tingling or numbness the first thing that comes to mind for most people is carpal tunnel syndrome.

Classic symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness and tingling sensations in the thumb and the first two or three fingers. In chronic cases patients will experience a loss in their grip strength and an inability to carry and handle various objects. Although carpal tunnel syndrome is very common, there are many other hand conditions that produce pain, numbness and tingling.

Hand Pain Treatment in Springfield MO

There are 27 small bones in the wrist and hand which are all held together by tiny ligaments and controlled by a series of small to medium sized muscles. Think about how many different ways you use your hands on a daily basis. The majority of activities include gripping, pinching, pulling, pushing or twisting. Thus, the hand is a strong yet delicate part of the body.

Due to repetitive activities and other stress or injuries, these small bones may lose their normal alignment. This can cause irritation and swelling throughout the wrist and hand. Nearby nerves become pinched and irritated and as a result you may begin to experience symptoms of pain, numbness or tingling sensations in the wrist or hand.

Chiropractic adjustments to the hands, wrists and possibly even the elbows, shoulders and spine, will restore healthy alignment which will allow them to function properly. Pressure will then be removed from the nerves. Our hand pain treatments are very effective in relieving hand symptoms and correcting the underlying cause of the problem.
