We have been treating hand pain in San Francisco for over 22 years.
Every week, many people come to our clinic with hand pain that has no apparent cause. Some say they woke up with it…others say it just came on while they were performing normal work or household duties. For some, the hand pain comes and goes and may be getting progressively worse.
The obvious place to look is the hands themselves. Are they being overworked? This day and age most of us spend a good amount of time sitting at a desk in front of a computer doing repetitive motions with the arms and hands. This alone without adequate breaks or proper ergonomics and posture can lead to hand pain, numbness, tingling, burning and weakness.
There is a not so obvious place to look as well that could well be the primary contributor to your arm or hand pain. The neck or cervical spine. This is where all the nerves that innervate or control the arm and hands (upper extremities) originate and they are very vulnerable to pressure or interference as they exit the spine.
Some of the conditions in the neck that can pinch the nerves and cause hand pain and related disorders are as follows:
- Herniated or bulging discs in the neck
- Facet Syndrome
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Vertebral Subluxation
- Bone spurs
- Spinal Stenosis
Here are some of the potential symptoms from these conditions:
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Arm pain
- Elbow Pain
- Hand Pain
- Numbness and Tingling
- Weakness of Grip
- Night Pain
These are also the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). In fact, many patients are misdiagnosed with CTS when the problem is actually in the neck. It’s easy to do since the symptoms are the same. This is why it’s so important to See a doctor who spends the majority of their day managing cases of hand pain and related disorders and knows how to treat them naturally. There are many chiropractors that specialize in this like we do.
The last thing you ant is unnecessary drugs or surgeries.
Patients come to our San Francisco Chiropractic and medical center because they know we are hand pain and carpal tunnel experts. We have medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, trainers, massage therapists, and nurses, that routinely treat hand pain, naturally.
