Wrist Pain: Carpal Tunnel and Other Syndromes
Wrist pain and forearm injuries are common and have increased in recent years as a result of the sedentary style of our society and job market. In both our personal and professional lives, we are al spending more time than ever in front of a computer. That results in more repetitive use of our wrist and forearm musculature. The pain that comes from overuse is often compounded by poor ergonomics.
These conditions can be quite disabling. Fortunately, conservative care from a chiropractor or physical therapist trained in myofascial release and Graston Technique can resolve most of these issues.
Some conditions that can be helped with conservative care are:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Numbness, tingling on palm, in thumb, and three fingers.
- Intersection Syndrome: Pain and popping two inches above the back of the wrist.
- Tendinopathies/Tendonitis: Several overuse syndromes causing pain in the forearm.
- Pronator Syndrome: Anterior forearm pain with history of repetitive occupation.
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: Medial forearm pain and tingling to ring and little finger.
- Radial Tunnel Syndrome: Dull aching pain over the lateral (outside) of the forearm.
- Anterior Interosseus Syndrome: anterior forearm pain causing pinch grip weakness.
- Wartenberg’s Syndrome: Numbness tingling over the back and thumb side of hand.
- Trigger Finger: Catching or “triggering” of a finger when moving.
