Elbow & Hand Pain

Attention to the elbow, wrist and hand is indicated when a patient suffers from any of the following: • Restricted or altered range of motion. • Point tenderness, whether in the proximal or distal metacarpophalangeal • Interphalangeal joints. • Lateral (tennis elbow) or medial (lateral) epicondylitis. • Peripheral nerve entrapment syndrome. • Olecranon bursitis. • Other.

Elbow, wrist and hand complaints may occur suddenly or with gradual onset. Complaints occurring suddenly include sprains, strains, results of sports injuries, dislocations and fractures. The cumulative effects of micro trauma produce elbow, wrist and hand complaints of more insidious onset.

In Chiropractic, we use the protocol Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique, in the assessment of the elbow / wrist hand subluxations and treatment. What makes a person with an elbow or wrist-hand complaint a Chiropractic patient is based on Chiropractic’s principle that joint dysfunction termed “subluxation” is the cause of a patient’s signs and symptoms. The American Chiropractic Association has defined a “subluxation” as “the alignment / physiological function of a motion segment as being altered although contact between the joint surfaces remains intact.”
