Hand Pain – Options and Treatments
Hand pain and hand numbness can often be traced back to nerve damage or a pinched nerve. At the Non-Surgical Spine Center, we offer treatments that can improve the quality of life for those suffering hand numbness and pain. We offer a number of non-surgical options to improve both your mobility and use of your hands and reduce the pain, stiffness, and numbness often associated with these conditions.
Hand Pain and Hand Numbness
Symptoms of hand pain and hand numbness may point to many problems. The stiffness, pain, and numbness may affect your ability to lift, grasp, twist, and support objects. Difficulty moving may accompany the pain, but not always. There are a number of causes of hand pain and hand numbness, but they all result in one thing- a lack of ability to fully use one’s hands. Treatment may relieve the pain and improve mobility, returning your ability to use your hands to complete the everyday tasks so many of us take for granted.
A pinched nerve, like carpal tunnel, is one of the most common causes of hand pain and hand numbness. The restriction or impingement of the nerves as they travel through the spaces in your hand and arm can contribute to hand pain and numbness. A pinched nerve can also reduce strength in your hand and fingers. Treatments for a pinched nerve may include medical interventions, physical therapy, and non-surgical decompression.
Nerve damage can be caused by injury or disease. Nerve damage can be reversed, to some extent, with interventions. We may also recommend physical therapy and other treatments which will help strengthen your hands and return some mobility. Each case is different, and it’s important that you have a full examination to help determine the best course of treatment for your individual case.
