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 finger 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 pain) 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 injection at all costs. Steroid injections result in premature arthritis, muscle, ligament, cartilage, and bone damage. Researchers are now calling for a halt in using steroid injections of 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.
