Hand Numbness and Tingling?

carpal tunnel treatment san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for the neck, shoulders and hands in downtown San Francisco for over 23 years now.

Most of the patients we treat in the SF Financial District spend the majority of their day sitting in front of a computer doing repetitive motions. This activity can put a lot of stress on the bones of the spine in the neck and well as the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the shoulders, arms and hands.

The nerves that control the arms and hands exit from in between the bones of the spine in the neck. These nerves can become compromised with abnormal wear and tear leading to numbness and tingling in the hands. The problem can be in the neck, shoulders, elbows, or wrists.  All must be checked.

In most cases there is joint dysfunction and muscle imbalances, and even nerve pressure in multiple locations. The good news is that these sorts of problems tend to respond favorably to chiropractic and favorable outcomes are the norm.

The standard treatment for hand pain and numbness at our clinic is chiropractic adjustments to the neck, shoulder, elbow, wrists and fingers, massage or ART, low tech exercises in office and at home, deep tissue laser if needed, and ice or heat. Most cases respond in short order. Chronic long standing cases can take longer to treat.

We also have a team of medical doctors and physical therapists that specialize in sports medicine at our primary clinic, Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. which is a few blocks away from our Embarcadero Center walk-in clinic.

Hand Pain Treatment in San Francisco

Hand Pain Treatment in San Francisco Downtown

We have been providing natural hand pain treatment in downtown San Francisco for 22 years now in the Financial District. 

Most of our patients spend the majority of their day sitting in front of a computer doing repetitive movements with their arms and hands.  In addition, they are mostly under the stress of meeting deadlines and are expected to perform at a very high level.

On top of this, many of our patients are actively involved in sports and hobbies that require repetitive use of the upper extremities like weight lifting, cross-fit, cycling, and tennis.

This is the reason hand pain is so common with office workers and urbanites. Not to mention the fact that most of us then go home and spend more time on the computer. In fact, many are connected on the way to and from work. OUCH!

In my experience, the source of the hand pain is typically a combination of pressure on the nerves in the neck that innervate (connect to) and control the hand, and pressure in the wrist on the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. This is called “Double Crush Syndrome” and is one of the more common conditions we treat.

Many doctors and physical therapist have a good understanding of this condition but lack the ability to successfully treat it. In my opinion…and I have treated provided hand pain treatment to over 5000 patients, treatment must include the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers on both sides. It is also important to make sure the rest of the spine is in proper alignment and the legs are even. A short leg can cause muscle tension in the neck and lead to pinched nerves.

Our hand pain treatment will usually include chiropractic adjustments to the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands, as well as myofascial release, cervical traction, custom exercises, and ergonomic instruction. We will also address sleeping postures and nutrition. It all matters.

A hand pain treatment visit at our chiropractic center takes about 30 minutes. In the event of severe hand pain or injury from trauma, we may refer you to one of our physical therapist or medical doctors , either onsite or at another location. We also may need to take x-rays or perform diagnostic tests to quantify your problem.

The bottom line is this…when it comes to hand pain treatment not all chiropractors, medical doctors or physical therapist are equal…experience matters!
