If you experience elbow, hand, or wrist pain, you know that it can impair your ability to participate in many daily activities.

Our professional staff at Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers provides non-invasive treatment for chronic and acute elbow, hand, and wrist pain. Dr. Miller and Dr. Berger will work to diagnose the root cause of your pain and help prevent it from reoccurring.
Causes of Elbow, Hand, and Wrist Pain
There are many common causes of elbow, hand, and wrist pain. For example, many people experience elbow pain because the elbow is frequently used throughout the day. Repetitive stress and overuse injuries can also cause a lot of pain in the forearm and wrist. People that tend to clench or grip a lot can develop trigger finger. One leading cause of wrist pain is carpal tunnel syndrome. People who develop this condition can experience tingling, numbness, or pain in the wrist. These symptoms can also spread to the first two fingers, thumb, and forearm. Other causes of pain in the elbow, hand, or wrist include:
- Tennis Elbow
- Pinched Nerves

One common treatment option for hand, elbow, or wrist pain is physical therapy. Physical therapy can reduce inflammation and improve nerve function.
