A wide range of ligaments to ensure adequate movements and stability stabilizes the carpal bones.
The wrist joint is prone to injury either through trauma or overusage.
The most common trauma that affects the wrist is FOOSH (Fallen On Outstretched Hand) injury. This can result in sprain/ strain of the supporting structures or potentially fracture of the carpal bones.
Wrist pains typically present as:
- Stiffness in the wrist joint.
- Clicking of the wrist joint with movements.
- Pain at end range of wrist movements.
Wrist pains should not be taken lightly as the risks of deterioration are high. Chiropractic treatments can manage wrist pain in a drug-free and effective manner. Our chiropractor would focus on treating the root cause of the wrist pain. Treatments would usually involve joint manipulation/mobilisation, trigger point therapy, home stretches and kinesiotaping.
At Spearwood Chiropractic, our chiropractors are trained to identify the root cause of the problem. We will go through a detailed assessment with our patient before formulating a personalised treatment and rehab plan to eliminate the root cause of the problem. No individual is the same! Our goal is to help our patients achieve long-term relieve and wellbeing.
