People often resort to Chiropractors to receive treatment for back or neck pain. However, a State College PA chiropractor can effectively treat several other problems such as knee pain and issues in smaller joints like fingers or shoulders. Pain in your shoulder can be caused by joint irritation or tissue irritation. And just like the other types of pain listed here, the patient can relieve Shoulder Pain by receiving regular chiropractic adjustments.

Pain in the shoulder can also appear due to other factors such as rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, dislocated shoulder, incorrect positioning of the shoulder, and more. Nevertheless, Chiropractors help to relieve pain in your shoulder without the need for pharmaceuticals or medical doctors.

What Causes Shoulder Pain

Of course, a person whose job requires that they perform repetitive movements all day with their hands can also damage their wrist and hands joints, and boy oh boy are there a lot of joints when you have 35 bones! Writers, secretaries, dentists and hairstylists know these problems intimately, as well as factory and construction workers. They use their hands and wrists all day, every day, and the constant motion can push the delicate joints out of place, especially in the wrist where the 8 wrist bones, called carpal bones, lie.

Carpal tunnel syndrome, for example, is when several of the wrist bones are subluxated and put pressure on the median nerve, one of the 3 major nerves that go through the wrist to give your hand the incredible ability it has to hold, grip, twist, pinch and so much more.

The good news is that chiropractic care can offer significant relief from all of these problems. Chiropractic adjustments of the cervical spine can do wonders for wrist and hand problems like wrist clicking and locking, numbness and tingling and acute pain, as well as help to relieve De Quatrain's tenosynovitis, a painful wrist problem that affects the intricate web of wrist tendons.

Chiropractic adjustments to the wrist and hand can be very helpful as well. Yes, chiropractors do that! They are joint specialists and can help with joint problems almost anywhere in the body, although they do tend to concentrate on the vertebral joints of the spine because that’s where many problems begin.
