We have been providing treatment for hand pain and numbness in San Francisco since 1992.
Hand pain and numbness is fairly common with people that spend the majority of their day in front of a computer. Unfortunately, many are misdiagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) or wrist sprains when the actual problem is in the neck.
That’s right, the primary cause of wrist pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in office workers is pressure on the nerves in the neck and not carpal tunnel syndrome.
The nerves that exit from in between the bones in the neck, travel down the arms and into the hands. Pressure on these nerves as they exit the spine from tight muscles, bulging discs, herniated discs, misaligned vertebrae, facet syndrome, or disc and spine degeneration is much more likely than CTS (which is rare).
This is good new because it is much more easier to treat most of the above than it is true CTS.
Traditional chiropractic care is very effective for neck, arm and hand pain. Massage, stretching and exercise, and even deep tissue laser can also help accelerate healing.
In the event chiropractic care fails to deliver a favorable outcome, we have cervical decompression with the DRX9000c spinal decompression system.
Herniated and bulging discs can be difficult to treat in some cases and the DRX9000c is very safe, gentle and effective.
Often times a combination of chiropractic and spinal decompression makes the most sense.
So…if you have been suffering with numbness in the hands or pain in the hands, weakness, tingling or neck pain, we would like to meet with you to discuss your treatment options.
