- My patients usually complain of pain on the radial side of the wrist
- It is usually from activities that require forceful gripping with ulnar deviation
- It can be also from repetitive use of the thumb
What is the cause?
Not to confuse you with big long words, but the two main culprits are abductor policies longs (APL) and extensor policies brevis(EPL). What happens is that there are several micro traumas to the tenosynovium or the sheath.
How can Health Wise Chiropractic help ?
Research can show that an initial treatment of ultrasound therapy and talking to your G.P to see if nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drug can help you as well. Very rarely surgical intervention is needed
