Wrist pain could be of a sudden or could be of a chronic origin with or without swelling. The pain could be felt while doing day to day work in the kitchen e.g. while opening a bottle, turning the keys to open the door, brushing your hair. It could be accompanied with tingling sensation and numbness. This could happen when any swelling occurs in the soft tissues around the carpel bones, as the swelling could be pressing on the nerves which pass through them. The pain sometimes could be felt radiating upwards to the forearm.
The cause of wrist pain in this day and age is mostly due repetitive movement which is not very natural to us. These are like long computer hours, more of smart phone usage, where our fingers and hands are used repetitively. At other times, profession like using vibrating tools and repeated turning motions etc could also lead to wrist pain.
Acupuncture by balance method (Tan’s balance method) at Body Balance Acupuncture could help this condition, and needles will be placed far away from the affected part, on the balancing points, for reducing of pain, along with rest for the affected part will complement the treatment.
