If your job involves working with your hands or if you have a hobby that requires your hand’s attention at all times, this could lead to chronic pain in your hands if you don’t take care of yourself. We need our hands every day and just like the rest of our body, the function of our wrists and hands are connected to your spine. The nerves that leave the spine travel down the arms to the hands. What’s great about a sports chiropractor is they not only treat the alignment of the spine but can address extremity injuries like hand pain. Here are some common reasons why people get hand pain.
Common Causes of Hand Pain
- Injury – Accidents happen but those accidents can cause injuries like fractures, dislocation, and broken bones.
- De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis- affects the tendons of the thumb from overuse. ART and IASTM work great to treat the condition.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – This involves the compression of the nerve that delivers messages for movement to the hand. People often pair chiropractic visits and use a brace for support and pain relief.
- Osteoarthritis – This pain stems from inflammation and swelling of the joints caused by degeneration.
