If you’re struggling with hand or finger pain, the cause may be deeper than you think. The root of the problem might actually be tension in your neck, shoulders, or arms. Fortunately, chiropractic care can provide relief from your symptoms and help to reduce any underlying tension that is causing them. Let’s take a closer look at how this works.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Hand and Finger Pain
Chiropractors are trained to identify the source of a patient’s pain and discomfort. When it comes to hand and finger pain, they will often look for tension in the neck, shoulders, and arms. That’s because these areas are all connected through the nervous system. Tension in one area can affect another area of your body, leading to pain or discomfort.
For example, if you work long hours at a computer with poor posture or positioning, you might experience neck pain due to muscle tension or misalignment in your spine. This tension can then travel down into your arms and hands, causing tingling or numbness in your fingers or even shooting pains through your wrist and forearm. Fortunately, regular chiropractic care can help to reduce this tension before it affects other parts of your body.
Chiropractors use manual adjustments along with massage therapy to relieve muscle tightness and improve joint mobility. By releasing this tension throughout the body, chiropractors can help patients feel more relaxed overall—including their hands and fingers! Regular visits can also help prevent future episodes of pain by keeping muscles loose and joints well-aligned. In addition to helping patients manage their chronic hand pain, chiropractors may also suggest lifestyle changes such as ergonomic workstations or stretches that can further reduce any existing strain on the body.
Chiropractic Care can Provide Relief
If you’re experiencing chronic hand or finger pain that does not seem to have an obvious cause—or just want some extra relief from existing discomfort—chiropractic care may be able to help you find relief without drugs or surgery! Through manual manipulation and massage therapy techniques, a qualified chiropractor can target areas of muscular tension in order to provide lasting relief from any related aches or pains in the hands and fingers.
