When Your Hands Let You Down, Chiropractic Can Help

By Sandy Schroeder

We have all had those moments when our hands stiffen up and slow down or completely lose their grip. We all use our hands morning through night to keep everything moving. At home we keep our family together. At work we keep the keys moving as we power through our deadlines. But what happens when our hands refuse to cooperate?
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may have the solutions that you need to get back on track. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors help people find the right health, wellness and fitness answers every day.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
When you come in, your chiropractor will want to talk about your hands, lifestyle, and health history.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be the first step to assess spinal health and help to create a new sense of well-being. Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may help to keep the benefits coming and create a platform to work on the hand issues.
At the same time, you may want to bring in your whole family to work on various issues. Chiropractic treatment may help to solve pain with lower and upper back pain, neck pain, migraine and tension headaches, shoulder or elbow pain, knee, foot and ankle pain, sciatica, and fibromyalgia.
Individual family issues may come up too with some special help.
  • Stress Relief - Spouses may seriously need some ways to siphon off stress
  • Digital Slouches - Teens may need to break away from their phones and try some posture exercises
  • Kids Corner - Kids may welcome some spring sports tips
Daily Hand Exercises
If you find daily tasks difficult to do because you suffer from stiffness, swelling, or pain in your hands, the right exercises may help.
HarvardHealth suggests simple range-of-motion hand exercises to hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Check with your doctor before beginning exercises that can be done in 10-repetition increments three times a day.
Extend and flex wrist - Put forearm on a rolled up towel on a table with the palm down. Move the hand up until you feel a gentle stretch. Then return to start.
Wrist supination/pronation - Sit or stand with your arm at the side with elbow bent 90 degrees, palm facing down. Rotate the forearm so the palm faces up and then back down.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find out more about their affordable personal healthcare plans that require no insurance, have weekend and evening hours, and walk-in visits. No appointments are needed.
