Elkhart Chiropractors Specialize in Treating Wrist Injuries.If the tendonitis continues after the first six months, then the condition is diagnosed as chronic and can be more difficult to treat. Our licensed chiropractor will evaluate the point of pain and help to figure out which muscle or tendon is attached at that painful site. With the build up of chronic problems, chiropractic treatments away from the painful site of the problem may be much more effective. This is due to the point of pain may be the body’s way of telling that an injury has occurred elsewhere in the body.
Any of the misaligned joints may be directly the cause the chiropractor wrist tendinitis and must be correctly realigned. When correcting the main problem, the symptoms in other areas of the body will often disappear. Then our chiropractor must understand the underlying cause of the muscle damage that has led to the joint imbalance or injury. The body must learn how to perform tasks without adding stress on those same painful joints. Our chiropractor will provide special exercises to help keep the affected area muscles strong and to prevent a recurring injury.
If our chiropractor locates a misaligned bone, a chiropractic wrist adjustment will be performed using either the chiropractor’s hands which is a manual adjustment or an Activator instrument used by the chiropractor. The manual adjustment is most preferable in many cases, and we can feel the bone settling back into place during the common chiropractic maneuver. The patient will find it more difficult for pressure to be applied to the painful wrist area. Our chiropractor will use the instrument to deliver a quick wrist adjustment that requires very little force. The chiropractor may apply kinesio tape to help provide support to the area or recommend a support brace or other support device to help protect the wrist area while it heals naturally.
Wrist self adjustment is not recommended unless you are experienced or skilled. Our chiropractor specializes in treating carpal tunnel as well.
