Elbow, Wrist, & Hand Pain Relief
Nothing can disrupt your day to day life like pain or inability to use your elbows, wrists, and hands. Imagine trying to brush your teeth, shower, brush your hair, trim your beard, cook, drive to work, hold a cup of coffee, and type throughout the day with constant pain in any one of these areas.
Whether you’re experiencing pain due to an injury, ailment, or some other underlying condition, it can greatly impact your quality of life. Luckily, you can find relief and recovery for your elbow, wrist or hand aches and pains by working closely with a licensed physical therapist.
Is your job causing your pain?
Given the posture of your hands and repeated movements, it’s no wonder that regular computer users develop hand and wrist issues over time. Overuse and poor mechanics are generally the culprit for these conditions.
The repetitive motion in the fingers and bending of the hand and wrist (such as jobs that require a lot of typing) can cause the tendons in your hand to swell, putting pressure on the nerves in your hands. This overuse can affect the fingers, wrist, hand and forearm, causing symptoms including tingling, numbness and pain.
