Arm, Wrist, & Hand Pain

Arm Pain | Albuquerque

There are many potential causes of arm pain.  Maybe you lifted too heavy at the gym or carry around a growing child.  You may have overdone it on the tennis court or while playing golf.  
 

Common Causes of Arm Pain:

The cause of your arm pain may also be something a little less obvious.  Nerve impingement in the neck or aggravation of muscles/fascia in the neck or shoulder can radiate into the arm.  Many causes of arm pain can quickly and easily be detected with proper testing.  

Wrist and Hand Pain | Santa Fe

Wrist and Hand pain can also be complicated to pin down.  Similar to pain in the arm, these can be either from a local source or referred from above.  Wrist and hand pain are often due to repetitive stress but can also result from trauma. 

A car accident, for example, can cause a wrist sprain from where you where grasping the steering wheel at the time of impact.  If you sustained more significant injuries in the neck or low back, you may not even notice that your hand or wrist is injured for some time.  Another common cause is catching yourself during a slip and fall.  Unfortunately, this becomes more common as we age and struggle more with balance.

We will treat the pain that you are experiencing through a combination of massage, chiropractic, and possibly physical therapy modalities.  We will also work with you to strengthen, loosen, or otherwise calm the area through a comprehensive home routine.
