Is Your Job Causing Wrist Pain?

By Donna Stark

Are you an athlete, writer, mechanic, hairdresser, or keyboard superstar? Do you rely on your hands to "get the job" done? If so, you may want to keep reading, because it's jobs like these that could be the culprit to the pain in your wrists. And even though you may believe there is little you can do about that pain you are feeling, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic beg to differ.

Two Common Causes of Wrist Pain

When most people think about wrist pain, their first assumption is that carpal tunnel syndrome has invaded their peaceful lives, but that isn't always the case. There are other conditions that share similar symptoms, which is why it is so important to get an accurate diagnosis from the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Treating your pain correctly and from the start is vital if you want to find a successful and long-lasting solution. Let's take a look at two common conditions that can cause wrist pain and how regular chiropractic adjustments can help.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The nerve that runs down your forearm, through your wrist, and into your hand is called the median nerve, and if this nerve is compressed, you may end up feeling numbness, tingling, and pain. These sensations can then lead to muscle weakness, decreased grip strength, and clumsiness.


When the tendons within your wrist become inflamed, it's not because they are filled with joy and happiness, it's because they have been overused and are a bit irritated and angry. This condition is called tendinitis (or tendonitis) and it can lead to stiffness, pain, a decreased range of motion, muscle weakness, and numbness.

How Routine Chiropractic Care can Help

The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic will identify the underlying source of your wrist pain and effectively treat it with safe, gentle, and precise adjustments. These adjustments help encourage an immediate start to the healing process by reducing inflammation, soothing irritated nerves, and increasing circulation. Your chiropractor will also share plenty of tips on how you can minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of future pain and injury yourself at home and work.
