Dealing With Wrist Pain With The Help Of Chiropractic Care

Factors That Cause Wrist Pain

Your wrist is very complicated. It is made up of small bones with each bones attached to ligaments, tendons, and muscles that allows the wrist to move freely. Now, that becomes difficult and even painful if any of these happens:

-         Sports injuries due to torn ligaments

-         Sprains & Strains
-         Fractures
-         Impact injuries, such as bracing oneself from a fall
-         Injuries resulting from repetitive movements, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Tendonitis

Ways That It Can Affect Ones Daily Living

With all that, it’s not hard to imagine how it can directly affect anyone on their day to day living.

- It limits activity of the hands
Even things as simple as washing the dishes, doing your hair, or any household chores can be painful for you.

- Reduces productivity in the workplace

Whether you have an office job or not, since you rely on your hands mostly to do anything it can definitely slow you down at work if you suffer from wrist pain.  

- Keeps you from participating in any sports

If you like playing sports, that would have to take a back seat since it can make your condition worst.

- Affect an individual’s quality and enjoyment of life
Because everything you do gets limited in order to avoid aggravating your pain, you may feel left out in more ways than you can imagine. For some it can even feel like being a burden since family or friends would have to cover for the things you can’t do due to the condition you have.

Reasons To Consult A Chiropractor

Although some wrist pain gets better with ice, rest, and over-the-counter pain medications, you also have to be aware of the instances that call for a professional help. Delaying diagnosis and treatment can result to poor healing, reduced range of motion and long-term disability. Seek a chiropractor here in Singapore if:

-         Pain and swelling last longer than a few days
-         The tiniest movement brings pain
-         Or the condition becomes worst
-         Chiropractic care is an effective way to relieve pain
-         Chiropractic addresses the root cause of the problem and provide long-term solution

A chiropractor can administer manual adjustment to realign and manipulate the bones of the wrist back to its proper alignment. This lessens the tension on the surrounding ligaments, tendons, and muscles which causes the pain in the first place.

Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

Do you often feel burning or tingling sensation on one leg? Does the pain starts on your lower back and travels into your thigh, which sometimes travels further down the leg to the foot and toes? Or worst, numbness or weakness of the leg muscles is already present?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then it’s possible that you have sciatica. This pain in your leg, which is actually just a symptom of an underlying condition, is usually due to disc herniation, piriformis syndrome, trigger point referral, or trapped nerve.

So, with all the possible causes of sciatica, the question is, how do you treat this kind of pain? Well, most experts would recommend seeking chiropractic care. If you do, a chiropractor will review your medical history and put you under series of test to confirm if you do suffer from sciatica. Once you get diagnosed, the chiropractor will recommend a combination of chiropractic adjustments, massage, and ice/cold therapy to help your body heal. Here’s why com…

Causes Of Neck Pain

Being In One Position For Too LongIf you slump all day on the couch, sit all day at your desk job, or are doing any activity that makes you be in one position for extended period of time, you’ll experience stiffness and/or muscle spasms in the neck area which leads to pain.
Jobs That Involve Repetitive MotionIf there are jobs that require a person to be in a stagnant position, there are those that entail repetitive motion like those who operate a drill press or practically anyone whose job is in power equipment or continuous assembly line operation. Those kinds of jobs tend to bring muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck.

What To Expect: 3 Stages Of Chiropractic Care

Unlike pain killers, which are what people often resort to when they experience pain or ache in the body, chiropractic care isn’t a temporary remedy. Like any other treatment, chiropractic care is a process which may or may not take time to see the result depending on your condition. But the good thing with a comprehensive treatment like this is that it provides you long term solution instead of just a quick relief that is most likely going to wear off after a couple of hours.
1. Relief The primary concern of people seeking a chiropractor in Singapore is the chronic pain that they’re in. What the chiropractor does at this point is lessen the symptoms and prioritize on relieving the pain of the patient. This stage often needs 2 to 3 sessions for the patient to feel the result, though many says even after just one session you can feel a considerable difference. 
2.Correction And Restoration Now this is where it gets deeper. Pain don’t just come out of nowhere, when you are always in pain so…
