Hand and Foot Doctor

Your hands and feet are easy to take for granted. Until they hurt.

Then you’ll begin to notice how much you use them, rely on them, and need them to function to the fullest.

Repetitive Movements

Hand and Foot Doctor | AICA

Our hands and feet have total contact with the world. We use our hands all day, and often for repetitive tasks than place stress on the knuckles, joints and wrists. Our feet support a lot of weight – at least the full weight of our bodies – and they do it most of the day.

Often our hands and feet will carry their burdens under conditions that place them under acute stress, or cause gradual degeneration.

Ironically, it can be the featherweight activities of daily living that most damage our hands and feet.

  • Typing
  • Gardening
  • Walking, Jogging
  • Sewing and knitting
  • Job related movements

Because the hands and feet are made with small bones, they can be affected by mundane, repeating tasks. That’s when these little bones go out of alignment and become a stress to muscles and soft tissue causing irritation, pain, immobility and weakness. A chiropractor who specializes in treating pain in the hands and feet can help assess proper treatment, and realign these small bones to restore quality of life.

About Your Injury

Hand Pain

If you’re feeling pain, tingling, numbness or a weakening in your hands and wrists, you may be facing a health problem. The most important thing that you can do is to make an appointment with a chiropractor who specializes in hand health restoration – also known as a hand adjustment.

The form of the hand is obviously of a different character than the spine, but the concept of its adjustment is similar. Treatment pinpoints the misalignment that is causing pain, irritation and stress on surrounding nerves with the aim of restoring the normal functioning of the hand.

  • For the typists, you may be reading this because you’ve been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. If you’re feeling tingles and burning in your ring finger, index finger and thumb, it may indicate you have carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a common misalignment, or cave in of the bones that surround the carpal tunnel, which connects your hand and wrist.
  • Arthritis is the painful and eventually chronic condition of stress between the knuckles in the hands. Chiropractic techniques on the fingers and hands may help to alleviate symptoms and bring back joint function.

Wrist Pain

Any repetitive motion in the hands is also going to affect the wrists, which act as the fulcrum to whatever weight the hands are carrying. If there is pain toward the inner side of the wrist that faces the thumb, that could mean harm was done to the tendon because of the surrounding wrist bones. Moving those bones can help bring relief.

Thumb Pain

Because of the stress a thumb is under as it grips and presses – closing and tightening your hand – it’s often the first to feel the degenerative effects of arthritis. Once you’ve begun to feel the pain, it’s time to get to a chiropractor who specializes in hand treatment.

Foot Pain

The most common mistake people make with their feet is buying another expensive pair of shoes or custom insoles to treat pain. Shoes and insoles can be a great help, but rarely is the addition of padding under the foot going to solve the underlying problem that is causing the pain that you feel. For that, the best line of defense is to take the issue seriously and approach a doctor of chiropractic who specializes in treating the foot.

  • You may feel pain on the bottom of your foot (heel spur)
  • The ball of your foot (metatarsalgia)
  • Or, if you’re active, on its side (bunions, tendonitis or ankle stress)
  • Pain in the back of your heel (Achilles tendonitis)

Underfoot conditions such as these can be helped by attending to the bone structures that support your weight, and ensuring they are aligned.
