The value that your hands provide is unmeasurable considering the long list of actions they allow us to follow through with on a daily basis. From the moment you step out of bed to the time that you close your car door when you arrive home from work, your hands serve as one of the most important resources you have. Unfortunately, despite the value that both extremities provide, the thought of protecting these areas of your body is often overlooked or ignored until some type of accident takes place or painful condition develops.
If you have recently been involved in some type of accident that has damaged your hands, or have suffered from acute pain for some time now, make sure you give our office a call as soon as possible. Allowing these particular areas of your body to go without treatment will only increase your risk of developing some type of debilitating, painful condition later in life that may not be treatable.
Finger, hand, or wrist injuries most commonly occur during:
Due to how versatile your hands are and the fact that they are used on a constant, daily basis, it’s easy for stress to build up around the joints and ligaments that run through both physical extensions. Excessive stress that’s placed on your joints, wrists, and knuckles can create a significant amount of pain over time, while also influencing the onset of other conditions such as arthritis. Basic activities such as:
All have the potential to wear down your hands over time, especially if you are not actively working with medical professionals to eliminate this tension or relieve your chronic pain.
The reason why your hands are so sensitive to everyday, seemingly trivial activities is because of how both extremities consist of small bones and muscles that are extremely fragile.
That’s why those who work in some type of office environment and type on a computer visit a chiropractor to treat arthritis more often than other professions. The stress that this type of occupation places on your ligaments and soft tissue causes pain, weakness, immobility, and significant irritation or inflammation.
Our Jonesboro Chiropractors specialize in treating hand and foot pain and can pinpoint the precise source of your discomfort, offering appropriate treatment that realigns your bones and allows for proper circulation.<
Pain Located Within Your Hands
If you’re feeling pain, tingling, numbness or a weakening of your hands and wrists, you may be facing a health problem. The most important thing that you can do is to make an appointment with a chiropractor who specializes in hand health restoration – also known as a hand adjustment.
The form of the hand is obviously of a different character than the spine, but the concept of its adjustment is similar. Treatment pinpoints the misalignment that is causing pain, irritation, and stress on surrounding nerves with the aim of restoring the normal functioning of the hand.
For the typists, you may be reading this because you’ve been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. If you’re feeling tingles and burning in your ring finger, index finger and thumb, it may indicate you have carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a common misalignment, or cave in of the bones that surround the carpal tunnel, which connects your hand and wrist.
Arthritis is the painful and eventually chronic condition of stress between the knuckles in the hands. Chiropractic techniques on the fingers and hands may help to alleviate symptoms and bring back joint function.
Pain Located Within Your Wrists
Any repetitive motion in the hands is also going to affect the wrists, which act as the fulcrum to whatever weight the hands are carrying. If there is pain toward the inner side of the wrist that faces the thumb, that could mean harm was done to the tendon because of the surrounding wrist bones. Moving those bones can help bring relief.
Pain Located Within Your Thumbs
Because of the stress, a thumb is under as it grips and presses – closing and tightening your hand – it’s often the first to feel the degenerative effects of arthritis. Once you’ve begun to feel the pain, it’s time to get to a chiropractor who specializes in hand treatment.
If you are currently in pain, then the time to schedule an examination with one of our experienced doctors is now. There is no reason you should allow yourself to live with pain, especially if it’s preventing you from following through with your responsibilities and goals.
