Chiropractic and A.R.T.® Combine to Treat Elbow, Wrist and Hand Discomfort
Pain in the elbow, wrist and/or hand can be debilitating. Many of these injuries are a result of repetitive strain or a movement you do over and over again. It may be a task at work or it may be doing a hobby you really enjoy.
Chiropractors are “bone and joint doctors” and injuries to the elbow, wrist and hand can be caused by lack of mobility in these joints too.
Just like adjusting the joints of the spine to restore mobility, we also provide relief by adjusting the joints of the elbow, wrist and hand.
Often the pain can be alleviated through treatment of the muscles of the forearm. One technique that works especially well is ART® and the Chiropractors at Kamloops Active Health are trained in this technique. They are able to break apart the adhesions and scar tissue that has built up in your soft tissues and may be causing your pain or injury to keep coming back. After these soft tissues have been stripped and loosened, prescribed stretches and exercises are an integral part of the recovery process.
Through follow-up strengthening exercises we ease any residual pain left after treatment and help prevent your injury from re-occurring. For many, the chiropractic approach replaces the need for surgery often associated with pain in the elbow, wrist and hand.
Conditions that may benefit from this type of chiropractic care include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis and golfers elbow (epichondylitis)
