Elbow, Wrist & Hand Pain Relief Huntington Beach, CA

Elbow Wrist & Hand Pain

Because your neck, hands, and arms are so interconnected, a task or injury that involves one part, such as your lower arm, can end up causing everything from finger numbness to elbow pain.

Typing, writing, and jobs that require repetitive lifting continue to be a contributing factor in developing a condition known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). This syndrome is named for the tunnel surrounding the nerves connecting your wrist, hand, and fingers. Overly stressing the median nerve can lead to the aching wrist and numb fingers associated with CTS. Often, hormone fluctuations can put patients more at risk for CTS, so pregnant women, and women between the ages of 34-60, may be more likely to experience these injuries.

Early intervention — especially physical therapy — may help you avoid surgery. Hand and arm movements designed to build flexibility and strength decrease CTS pain and numbness, while easing inflammation and decreasing further pressure on the median nerve.

We treat numerous conditions affecting the hands, elbows, and wrists. Among them are:

  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis/Golf Elbow
  • Fractures
  • Sprains

 

How are these conditions treated?

The first step in dealing with hand, wrist or elbow pain is evaluating the source of that pain. Our evaluation helps further assess your current strength and flexibility capabilities. Physical Therapists are also highly trained in looking beyond your wrist to identify if your elbow, shoulder or neck could be the cause or contributing to your symptoms.

After your evaluation, the first priority is to use therapeutic techniques to help relieve the pain as soon as possible. We then begin to focus on building up your range of motion, especially through gentle stretching and other flexibility exercises. Finally, exercises for building strength will be added. You will also have a home program to further help with your therapy goals. You will be educated on proper posture and positioning so you can achieve your goals more quickly and return to your active lifestyle!
