Our wrists and hands are always in use, so it is no surprise that injuries and trauma are very common.
There are many factors that can cause enough damage to put us in pain. This can include repetitive actions, such as computer and phone use, daily activities, sports, and more. The pain can make everyday activities difficult.
At the Regenerative Healing Center, we specialize in helping those with pain in their hands and wrists. Here is one of the most common conditions we treat with great success.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: This painful condition results from pressure being exerted on the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel, a narrow opening on the palm side of the wrist. Symptoms include numbness, tingling or pain in the thumb and first three fingers.
Other conditions include:
- Complex tears
- Ligament injury
- Trigger finger
How they treat it
As a first course of action, go-to remedies for conventional doctors include drugs such as NSAIDs or other anti-inflammatories. Taking drugs to mask the pain carries plenty of risks even with well-known over-the-counter (OTC) drugs such as aspirin and acetaminophen. The risks may include harm to the liver and stomach, bleeding, kidney and in some cases, heart problems.
How we treat it
At the Regenerative Healing Center, we treat hip pain using an integrative approach. Using prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and other therapies, we accelerate and enhance the body’s natural healing process. Many patients that come to our center have already been through the conventional route without relief. With our treatments, they finally start to feel relief enabling them to get back to what they love to do.
