Arm and Hand Pain Relief

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms

Is it difficult to grasp a jar, bottle or cup? Do you have tingling or numbness in your hand, wrist or fingers? Or, does your wrist just plain hurt? These are carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, and if you're experiencing any of them, you may be afflicted. At the base of the palm, just above the carpal bones of the wrist, is a "sleeve" or "tunnel" where the tendons and nerves from the arm pass through to the hand and fingers. Pinching or compression of the median nerve sets into motion a progressively crippling disorder that eventually results in wrist pain, numbness and tingling in the hands. Chiropractic treatment in conjunction with a myofascial adjustment alleviates compression and stress on the nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment can help strengthen and increase the functionality of the affected area.

Bulging Disc

A bulging disc can cause discomfort and disability in various parts of the body, depending on the location of the affected disc(s). A bulging disc occurs when one of the discs between your vertebrae develops a weak spot and pops out beyond its normal parameter. Chiropractic treatments and recommendations can be very helpful with reducing the problem and allowing it to heal.

Radial Nerve Entrapment

Radial nerve entrapment or radial tunnel syndrome is a condition in which a nerve in the forearm is squeezed, narrowed or flattened (compressed), causing elbow pain and weakness of the wrist or hand. But unlike other nerve problems affecting the hand, radial tunnel syndrome does not cause a loss of sensation, such as numbness or tingling. Repetitive activity and injury are the most common causes of radial nerve entrapment.

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

A pinched nerve (nerve entrapment) in or near the elbow can cause elbow pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness of the arm, wrist or hand. The nerve that most commonly gets pinched in or near the elbow is the ulnar nerve. These symptoms are often confused with cervical herniated discs. Active Release Technique is often a treatment used to treat ulnar nerve entrapment.

Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is very flexible, but it's also very fragile. Pain in your shoulder or upper arm pain can result from a number of causes. An irritated nerve in your neck, repeated overuse or an injury can cause inflammation and stiffness making everyday activities painful. Bursitis, rotator cuff and tendons can be affected from overuse or injury causing pain and stiffness. We combine joint mobilization with active release techniques to loosen up the muscular imbalance in the rotator cuff and break up any scar tissue that may have formed during the injury.


Overuse of your muscles, skin and tendons can inflame the bursa (the fluid filled sac that protects the bones) causing pain and stiffness. The bursa allows smooth gliding between these moving parts. Since both tendons and bursae are located near joints, inflammation in these soft tissues will often be perceived as joint pain and can be mistaken for arthritis. Symptoms for both are similar – pain and stiffness aggravated by movement. Pain may be more prominent at night. Almost any tendon or bursa in the body can be affected, though those located around a joint are affected most often. Tendonitis and bursitis are usually temporary conditions, but can become recurrent or chronic problems.
