Pain in the hand and wrist area may be a sign of degenerative and inflammatory processes involving the tendons and the sheath that covers them. In athletes, it may be a long-term symptom of overuse injury.
At your first visit, your chiropractic physician will go over your medical history, discuss your symptoms with you,and perform a physical examination. The doctor will then address not only the symptoms but the root cause of your wrist pain using one or more of the most appropriate chiropractic techniques available. This may include adjusting the affected joint to restore proper functionality, immobilization (i.e. a splint),and cold or heat.
