Hand and Wrist Chronic Pain
Our busy hands have been responsible for amazing things and in our digital world, the joints in our hands and wrists are in extreme demand. From occupational responsibilities to hobbies our hands and wrists are hard at work to keep up with us. Many people work over eight hours a day at computer stations that are not ergonomically correct putting hand and wrist joints at risk. Over time, the wear and tear on our hands and wrists can cause several conditions that could leave you suffering from chronic pain. Here are a few hand and wrist symptoms you should seek immediate help for:
Numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers
Sore painful hands and fingers
Weakness in the wrists
Shooting pain from the hands to the elbows
Difficulty flexing fingers
Chronic pain in the hands and wrists is best addressed early on before the problem has a chance to worsen and cause severe damage. Chronic pain in the hands and wrists can strike at any age and is related to a number of hobbies, physical exercise, and careers.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Hand and Wrist Chronic Pain?
Many patients suffering from chronic pain in the hands and wrists fall into a dangerous cycle of turning to pain medication for quick relief to keep up with the demands of their day. Overtime pain medication has proven to have a very negative effect on vital organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys and the approach does nothing to address the underlying condition causing pain. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy works to heal the underlying conditions and damage causing your chronic hand and wrist pain and works with your body’s natural healing capability to reverse and rebuild the joints and essential tissue in your hand to relieve pain and help you continue doing the things you love each day.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway that runs between the carpal bones in the palm side of the wrists. The vital nerves that pass through this passageway control how our fingers move and feel. When carpal tunnel syndrome occurs the carpal tunnel swells from inflammation and compresses the median nerves interrupting the normal function of the hands and fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include:
Numbness and tingling in the palm of your hand and fingers
An increase of symptoms when hands are at rest
Burning sensation in the palm or fingers
Electric shock-like pain in the wrist and hand
Our hands are involved in almost every activity we perform so almost everyone is at risk for the condition. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by repetitive movements, workplace factors, trauma to the wrists or chronic inflammation. Poor positioning of the wrists and hands can also be responsible for the onset of the condition. Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly linked to movements like typing, lifting.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Untreated carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to intense chronic pain. As the median nerve becomes increasingly compromised you could run the risk of losing feeling and strength in your hand and fingers. We depend on our hands, so patients often turn to over-the-counter pain relievers and prescription pain medication to make it through each day. These temporary solutions mask the pain but do little to address the underlying cause. Common treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome comes in the form of steroid injections and surgery but the side effects and risks are too concerning to ignore. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive carpal tunnel syndrome treatment alternative that goes beyond masking the pain with pain medication and beyond the short-term relief of steroid shots. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy works with your body to help regulate inflammation response and repair any damage caused by the condition. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a holistic approach that requires no downtime and no lengthy recovery.
The wrist is a complicated joint that is capable of versatile fluid movement and cartilage plays a large part in how effectively the joint performs. Wrist arthritis occurs when the cartilage in the joints begins to wear away causing friction and inflammation along with chronic pain. As wrist arthritis progresses, movement in the wrist becomes more stiff and painful as bony growths called bone spurs begin to develop on the edges of your bones. Symptoms of developing wrist arthritis are:
Chronic pain in the wrist
Swelling and tenderness
Weakness in the hands and wrists
Difficulty gripping and lifting objects
Wrist arthritis can occur at any age but most commonly is diagnosed in patients over forty-five. Wrist arthritis is usually the result of the normal wear and tear of age and constant use. The condition can be triggered by repetitive movements required for work, hobbies or physical activity. Improper placement of the wrists for prolonged periods of time can also eventually lead to the onset of the condition.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Wrist Arthritis?
Two of the three surgical techniques commonly used to relieve wrist arthritis symptoms will result in the loss of some level of wrist function and range of mobility. For many patients that sacrifice is too great. Some people with wrist arthritis manage the condition by masking the symptoms with short-term solutions like pain medication, NSAIDs, and steroid injections but none of these treatment approaches address the underlying cause of the chronic pain. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical wrist arthritis treatment alternative that works with your body to regulate inflammation and relieve chronic pain while regenerating the joint and repairing the damage from the condition. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy helps patients restore the health of their wrist joint without the risks of surgery or long painful recovery.
