Heal your wrist strain quickly
There are many causes of wrist strains
Activities such as typing for long periods of time, chores, awkward postures and any activity which requires repetitive motions can contribute to a wrist strain. If you suspect you’ve suffered from a wrist strain, it’s important to seek chiropractic care, physiotherapy or massage therapy to get back to normal function. Treatments may include restorative exercises and stretches prescribed by the chiropractor or physiotherapist that will help improve range of motion and flexibility in the affected area. Early treatment is the best way to prevent an extended recovery period.

A wrist strain is a common injury involving the ligaments, muscles and tendons of the wrist. It is generally caused by repetitive movements or sudden trauma that put strain on the wrist, leading to inflammation and pain upon movement.
A wrist strain is a very common, yet painful, injury. It can occur from repetitive use, such as typing on the computer for hours at a time or from impactful injuries like sports-related traumas. The symptoms of this injury can range from mild to severe, but some of the more common indicators are pain in the wrist and forearm area, swelling, and difficulty using the wrist normally. Some people may also experience tenderness and bruising or hear cracking noises around the injured area.
Treatment for a wrist strain can be as simple as proper rest, ice and light stretches. If this is not enough to improve the pain and discomfort associated with a wrist strain, chiropractic treatment may be a helpful next step. A chiropractor may use targeted adjustments to help reduce swelling and soreness in the wrist area. Physiotherapy is also useful; specific exercises are prescribed to enhance healing, improve range of motion and restore strength in the affected muscles and tendons. Massage therapy is another route of care that can help ease tension in the wrist muscles by applying pressure and movements to help aid in blood circulation while simultaneously reducing stiffness. With careful care and rehabilitation, a person with a wrist strain should expect to begin seeing improvements after several treatments.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.
I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.
So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
