Who should I see for my wrist and hand pain?

This is a tough question most people face when trying to find a solution for their wrist and hand pain.

We take the think out of that question. Our team all works together under one roof, so it won’t matter who you begin with for your initial assessment. Our physiotherapists, chiropractors, and physicians are all experts at assessing your wrist and hand pain. Once accurately diagnosed, they will recommend the best care plan for you, and here is the best part: Because we are all under one roof, we can all talk to each other if your treatment plan requires more than one health practitioner to be involved.

You may require medication or injections from our physician, IMS, and rehab from our physiotherapists and adjustments and soft tissue therapy from our chiropractor. Wouldn’t it be nice if all of your health care team worked together to support you?

Most people recognize physiotherapy is an effective approach for the treatment of wrist and hand pain. Our physiotherapists certainly fit that description. They work closely with our sports medicine physicians to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment planning occurs.

A Chiropractor for my wrist and hand pain? I thought they only treated spines?

Most people don’t realize that chiropractors are fully trained in assessing and treating wrist and hand pain. There are numerous adjusting and manual therapy techniques that are often required to regain full joint mobility of these structures. Unfortunately, this is often overlooked in many clinical settings, which does not allow a full functional return to the affected extremity. Make sure to let us know if you have any wrist or hand pain issues.

How are they Adjusted/Treated?

Just like any other joint in the body, the wrist and hand have very specific functions and ranges of joint motion.  An assessment is made of the injured area, and very specific adjustments and other recommendations are applied to facilitate a full recovery.

Conservative manual therapy, including manipulation and soft tissue therapy, is first-line care for wrist and hand pain. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists have specialized training to effectively and efficiently do this form of treatment. This, combined with other interdisciplinary care if necessary, will be organized under one roof at National Spine Care to optimize your recovery.

Our Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, and Sports Medicine physicians can help you deal with your wrist and hand pain in Calgary.
