The joints of the wrist and hand can become misaligned, just like vertebra which leads to the joint not functioning properly. If one or more of the joints of the Wrist or Hand are jammed or not moving correctly, then nutrients may not be able to get into the joint surfaces allowing wastes to build up which leads to destructive osteoarthritis. This can occur in any of the many joints of the wrist, hand or fingers. The wrist itself has 8 bones to facilitate the incredible motion of the wrist. The hand and the fingers have many joints as well. These joints are commonly misaligned leading to wrist and/or hand pain, tingling or numbness, and associated muscle pain. Pain, numbness or tingling in the wrist or hand may also be coming from the elbow, shoulder or the neck. We therefore do a thorough exam of the spine and every joint in the arm when we encounter problems in the hand.
