Think about how many different ways you use your hands on a daily basis. The majority of activities include gripping, pinching, pulling, pushing or twisting. These repetitive, tedious, strenuous movements, if done incorrectly can lead to serious health problems involving the hands, wrists and arms.
With 27 bones all held together by tiny ligaments and controlled by a series of small to medium sized muscles the hand is a strong but yet delicate part of the body. That sounds like an oxymoron of course but it’s the truth. Have you ever completed a heavy, enduring, rigorous task without experiencing significant strain to your hands, but then on other occasions some menial, lightweight task seemed to cause your hand or wrists great discomfort and stress? One reason for this is that sometimes seemingly lighter weight tasks are done with the hands in a mechanically compromised fashion.
When you use your hands while they are positioned in a biomechanically incorrect position this will cause them to become compromised, weakened and ultimately they become injured. The tiny bones of the wrist and hand can actually lose their healthy alignment due to these unnatural movements. When the wrist or hand bones become misaligned, it can cause irritation and stress to the muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments and nerves. This will result in a loss of healthy hand and wrist function which may trigger symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, burning and even a reduction of finger and grip strength.
Keep in mind that it is not always a large, heavy task that causes the hands to develop health conditions, but more commonly it is those smaller, more tedious or repetitive hand activities that can cause problems to occur.
With all of the rigors of life that the hands encounter it is no wonder why so many people develop long-term chronic problems with their hands, wrists and arms. Some of the more common hand symptoms that can indicate an underlying health condition include pain, numbness, tingling, burning or loss of grip strength.
Although there are many different causes of hand pain, numbness, tingling and other symptoms, most of the time the cause of the problem is related to a mechanical dysfunction or small misalignment of one or more of the 27 wrist/hand bones. If you have been suffering with hand pain, numbness, tingling, loss of hand strength it is very important that you consult a reputable healthcare provider that specializes in diagnosing and treating hand, wrist and arm conditions.
The best solution to restoring normal function, strength and healthy alignment to the hands and wrists is accomplished using a specific, gentle joint manipulation procedure (known as a hand adjustment) by a trained expert.
Your Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center doctor is a trained expert in performing specific, gentle adjustments to the 27 bones of the wrist/hand. Your may be familiar with chiropractic care as it relates to the spine; however the idea of having your hand and wrist adjusted is a whole new concept to most people.
With standard chiropractic practices a chiropractor will improve a patient’s back pain condition by administering a gentle, specific adjustment to a misaligned vertebra in the spine. Similarly your Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center doctor will provide their hand patients with a specific, gentle adjustment to the misaligned hand and/or wrist bones thereby helping to restore function and provide relief. Because the chiropractor is actually improving the alignment of the misaligned hand/wrist bones it is truly getting to the root cause of the underlying problem.
Millions of people suffer unnecessarily every day with debilitating foot pain. In fact it is common for people to accept foot pain as a normal part of life. Foot pain suffers many times feel as though that’s the way their feet are and they just need to learn to live with the pain.
For decades, foot pain sufferers have attempted to resolve their foot problems by purchasing and using a variety of different shoe inserts. Many times these shoe inserts are purchased over the counter or from specialty stores; whereas other foot pain suffers will even go so far as to see a foot doctor to get custom fitted orthotics to wear inside their shoes.
While wearing a good pair of shoe inserts isn’t a bad idea it will rarely correct the actual underlying problem causing a person’s foot condition.
Custom made orthotics and over the counter shoe inserts simply act as a band-aid to support the foot and provide a cushioned surface. Sometimes this band-aid approach will provide relief but many times it’s a futile attempt as shoe inserts will often fail to provide the long-term relief that they had promised.
You might ask yourself, “If shoe inserts don’t correct the underlying cause, then what is the solution to really getting to the actual problem that is causing the foot pain”? Is it surgery? Is it injections? Is it medications? The answer to all of those questions is no. Surgery, injections and medications will generally not fix the problem either. In fact, with surgery especially there are numerous risks that you will need to consider.
So then what is the solution to actually correct the underlying cause of your foot condition and pain?
Because most foot pain is related to an abnormality in the alignment of the 26 foot bones the best solution will be one that directly address and corrects the foot bone misalignments.
