Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist Pain Relief
Shoulder, elbow, and wrist pain are all common conditions that result from a variety of causes. To treat pain, doctors at Astra Performance Health always start with an assessment of your motion and your spine, to identify the underlying cause of the pain and treat it to prevent further injury, inflammation, or arthritis. We often see patients at our office who have been referred for shoulder surgery, however, we are oftentimes able to use far less invasive therapies such as Active Release Therapy or Graston Technique to successfully treat shoulder, elbow, and wrist/hand problems.
Shoulder, elbow, and wrist or hand pain is generally caused by injury, overuse, or referred pain, which means that the pain originates in a different location, such as the back or neck.
Like the hip, the shoulder is a ball and socket joint that has a wide and versatile range of motion when healthy. When injured or restricted, it impedes your ability to move freely and can cause pain, discomfort, and referred pain.
In addition to injuries, other common causes of shoulder pain include arthritis, torn cartilage, or a torn rotator cuff.
Elbows are also complex joints, and pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, including tendinitis, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, sprains, and strains.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is very common, with over three million new cases every year in the U.S. Carpal tunnel is characterized by a numbness and tingling in the hand and arm caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist. Chiropractic treatment usually can relieve the tingling and numbness and restore wrist and hand function.
