There is no better way to gauge how much you use your elbows, wrists, and hands than to feel the discomfort they cause.
Imagine waking up, brushing your teeth, taking a shower, getting dressed, making breakfast, and commuting to work. This early in the day, you’ve already flexed your elbows, wrists, and hands hundreds of times.
Luckily, working with a licensed holistic physiotherapist or chiropractor can provide temporary comfort or complete recovery.
If you’re suffering from pain in your elbow, wrist, or hand, call Northstar Integrated Health & Physical Medicine Center today to schedule an appointment. We will be delighted to provide quality holistic care to address your condition.

What could be causing the pain in my elbows, wrists, and hands?
Any pain you’re experiencing around these parts of your body could be caused by one of the following conditions:
It is also possible to experience discomfort as a result of injuries to the elbow, wrist, or hand due to strains. Sprains are more commonly associated with ligament injuries, whereas strains are more commonly associated with muscle or tendon damage. An outstretched arm or catching a heavy object are the most common causes of this type of injury.
One out of every five Americans suffers from some form of arthritis. The cartilage in the elbow, wrist and hand joints was previously thought to be damaged by repetitive motions or loads. Physiotherapy and chiropractic care have all been shown to benefit joint mobility, reduce inflammation, and increase muscle strength.
- Elbow Bursitis
The bursa, a fluid-filled sac near the end of the elbow, acts as a cushion for the elbow bone, or “ulna.” Injuries or repetitive motions can cause the bursa to become squeezed, resulting in pain and edema in the area. This is why elbow bursitis is most common in athletes and students.
- Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow
A tennis elbow injury affects the elbow’s lateral (outside) side, whereas a golfer’s elbow is an injury that affects the medial (inside) side of the elbow. Neither of these injuries is specifically related to sports; rather, they are the result of inappropriate loading or repetitive use. The best therapies for these diseases are physiotherapy and chiropractic therapy since they repair the fundamental joint and soft tissue limits that produce tension on the tendons and quickly alleviate inflammation.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
The carpal tunnel protects your wrist’s median nerve and the tendons you use to flex your fingers, which is its primary role. A constricting nerve tunnel can lead to numbness and tingling of the thumb, first and second fingers when the nerves are pressed against each other. Wrist and finger edema are both possible side effects of carpal tunnel syndrome. There are two ways in which Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can be triggered: by an injury or repetitive use of the hands.
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
If you suffer from cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS), you’re at risk for developing pain in your elbow, wrist, and hand. It is caused by repetitive pressure on the inner elbow’s nerve that runs through the “funny bone”. The ring and pinky fingers might become painful, numb, or tingly if pressure is applied to the cubital tunnel and nearby nerves.
- Referral from your neck
Avoid wasting time and dollars on therapy or other methods of pain relief until you’ve had your neck thoroughly evaluated. This “carpal tunnel” pain and numbness can often be alleviated by very simple neck movements.
Does this sound like something you’re experiencing?
Chronic elbow, wrist, or hand pain may be indicative of something more serious than an injury, especially if it persists for more than six months. When it comes to pain, it can range from mild to excruciating and can also occur irregularly. Numbness or tingling in the fingers or other extremities may also be present in addition to the pain. Depending on the severity of your condition, this can make it difficult for you to perform at a normal level, causing problems at work, completing everyday tasks, or participating in your favorite activity.
Don’t wait any longer to get relief from upper extremity pain.
