Your wrist is one of the most used joints on a daily basis. No matter what kind of job you have, or what your routine is, the wrist is put to the test every single day. Pain can occur more often for those who are athletes and put high levels of stress on their wrists compared to the average person. However, most people put cumulative stress on their wrists with desk work. If you don’t have your wrist in a neutral position while working then you are causing micro-trauma onto the ligaments, joints and bones. With time, this can lead to an RSI (repetitive stress injury). Sports Chiropractors are extremely valuable when it comes to injuries to your wrist. These professionals not only treat the spine, but can effectively treat wrist injuries by providing Active Release Technique ( ART) to the soft tissue and providing adjustments to the carpal bones of the wrist.
Wrist Injury Common Symptoms
It can be easy to ignore the signs of pain especially since you might still be able to carry on with your daily routine. Take some time and do yourself a favor and get your wrist pain checked out. Some common symptoms are listed below.
- Extremely Hot or Cold
- Swelling and hard to move
The biggest culprit of wrist pain is overuse. When the strained muscle goes untreated it gets inflamed and begins to cause pain. Repetitive gripping and twisting of the arm is one way to bring about a strain on your wrist. A wrist brace can be used to help support and keep your wrist in a pain free neutral position while you wait to see a chiropractor.
