Wrist pain may seem like a small problem, but it can be detrimental to your career.
As well as your quality of life. It can interfere with daily activities such as driving, working, caring for
children, personal hygiene, and even keep you from getting a good night’s sleep. Wrist pain is
increasingly common, and traditional treatment for wrist pain might mean slow recovery, or
resorting to managing the pain and not treating the cause. Here are just a few reasons you

Who is at Risk?
Almost everyone. Wrist pain is not common to athletes, but to any professional in today’s
society. With modern advancements in technology, the medical industry, and computers, more
and more adults are spending the majority of their professional career behind a computer or on
a smartphone or tablet or operating equipment. Often, during the career of an athlete, they will
find themselves faced with debilitating pain which can affect their athletic performance. We live
in a world where there are sports activities for all ages, from children to senior citizens.

Will the Pain Just Go Away?
The answer is maybe, and probably not. Seek treatment at the earliest possible onset of your
symptoms. Your doctor will consult with you and determine the cause of your pain. The
treatment options would be determined by whether the pain is a result of trauma, such as a
severe twist of the wrist causing sprain, or simply from constant repetitive motions. Possible
options could include hot and/or cold compresses or perhaps immobilizing the wrist to give the
area time to heal, thus avoiding further injury.
Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
Hand or wrist injuries and pain are common not only in baseball, golf, or tennis, but also in
gymnastics and even weight lifting, wrestling and cheerleading. All of the above involve
repetitive motions and strain of the wrist. When the issue is addressed early, management is
more successful without requiring invasive surgical procedures.
Chiropractic care can be extremely successful in treatment of these injuries, and in avoiding
surgery. If you are suffering from wrist pain, make an appointment with your chiropractor as
soon as possible.
