Hand & Wrist Pain

Hand & Wrist Pain

Hand and wrist pain is generally caused by overuse, injury, or an underlying condition like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Depending on the exact cause, a patient may suffer from radiating pain, numbness, tingling, swelling, or muscle weakness. Similar to foot and ankle pain, hand and wrist pain can negatively impact a patient's quality of life. Therefore, it's imperative for patients suffering from this condition to undergo a thorough physical examination to rule out any serious health issues. Injuries or conditions that are left untreated can result in chronic, debilitating pain, and a loss of hand or wrist function. The team at AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Centers may recommend a comprehensive physical therapy regimen to improve range of motion and reduce hand and wrist pain. In addition to physical therapy, our specialists may implement a nutrition plan to reduce inflammation in the muscles and ligaments surrounding the hand and wrist joints.
