Wrist Pain

Wrist Pain Relief and Injury Treatment

Wrist pain, tingling, numbness and weakness can keep you from working and enjoying our life completely until you get pain relief. Common relief options such as over-the-counter painkillers and injections only mask the discomfort, however. And getting the right kind of treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis of an underlying neck condition or wrist injury. While carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common types of wrist pain, there are many others. Our chiropractors can accurately diagnose and successfully treat the vast majority of the underlying causes for lasting relief.

Chiropractic Care for Causes of Wrist Pain and Injury

The following types of wrist pain and injury respond very well to chiropractic care and therapeutic exercises our chiropractors offer. These are the most common types of wrist pain that our chiropractor regularly treats:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Inflammation of the tissues inside of the bony carpal tunnel compresses the median nerve, causing shooting pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the wrist and hands. Gripping objects can be difficult; often results from overuse injury, a subluxation in the neck, particularly poor ergonomics at your desk or while using mobile devices.

Strained or Sprained Wrist

These wrist injuries commonly happen when you fall and bend your wrist back suddenly, causing sudden torque. A sprain is a ligament injury, while a strain is an injury of the muscles and tendons. Chiropractic and physiotherapy provide successful treatment of both types of injury.


Tendons in the wrist can become chronically inflamed after injury or overuse. Instead of tendons sliding past each other smoothly, the inflammation causes pain and stiffness.


The fluid-filled sacs (bursa) that enable fluid movement of wrist tissues can become inflamed from excess pressure, overuse and injury. Our chiropractors can provide excellent natural treatment for pain relief, healing and wellness.

Wrist Pain Chiropractic Treatments

A combination of these natural, drug-free, non-invasive techniques usually resolve wrist pain entirely, improve range of motion and help you get back to an active, wellness-focused lifestyle.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our doctors gentle, precise spinal adjustments realign vertebrae to remove pressure from discs, which relieves nerve pressure and pain.

Therapeutic exercises

Our chiropractor will teach you stretches and exercises to help you support proper neck posture and improve range of motion through the upper back, shoulders and arms. They can also advise you on better ergonomics at work or write a letter of recommendation to have your work station assessed.
