Upper Extremity:

Treating Shoulder, Arm, Elbow, Wrist & Hand Pain

The chiropractors and physiotherapists of Chiropractic Specialty Center® are the top-rated non-surgical experts for upper extremity pain or injury. Pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, hands, or fingers are symptoms of an upper extremity disorder. You need an accurate diagnosis and focused treatment for your upper extremity's painful or injured part to recover.

The upper extremity or upper limb consists of three main sections:

  1. Upper arm
  2. Forearm
  3. Hand

The upper extremity starts at the shoulder joint and ends at the tips of your fingers. There are many muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, and blood vessels in the upper extremity allowing movements we need daily.

Here is a list of common upper extremity conditions that we successfully treat in our centers through the combined efforts of our chiropractors and physiotherapists:

What Are The Most Common Upper Extremity Conditions?

Tendon-related issues are the most common upper extremity complaint. The most common site of tendonitis is the shoulders, elbows, and wrists. Conditions such as frozen shoulders, rotator cuff tendonitis, tenosynovitis (de Quervain’s disease), or trigger fingers are common tendon-related disorders. Aside from tendon-related conditions, muscle problems, ligaments, joint dysfunction, and nerve damage or disorders are also relatively common.

What is The Best Therapy & Treatment Option For Upper Extremity Pain Or Injury?

People with upper extremity pain (shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, or hand) should always opt for non-invasive therapy options. Invasive procedures such as injections or surgery should be the absolute last resort. Additionally, you avoided steroid injections at all costs. Steroid injections result in premature arthritis and muscle, ligament, cartilage, and bone damage. Researchers are now calling for a halt to steroid injections for the spine, joints, and sports injuries.

Chiropractic care and physiotherapy are better options than injection or surgery. However, a mix of chiropractic combined with physiotherapy is the best option. Chiropractic Specialty Center® has over 15 years of experience in integrative treatments for the spine, joints, and sports injuries through chiropractic and physiotherapy.
