Arm Pain | Noe Valley

There are many potential causes of arm pain.  You may have lifted too heavily at the gym or you may carry a child who is getting a little bit too heavy.  You may have overdone it on the tennis court or while playing golf.  
 

Common Causes of Arm Pain | Noe Valley:

The cause of your arm pain may also be something a little less obvious.  Impingement of nerves in the neck or aggravation of muscles/fascia in the neck or shoulder can radiate into the arm.  Many causes of arm pain can quickly and easily be detected with proper testing.  

Wrist and Hand Pain | Noe Valley

Wrist and Hand pain can also be complicated to pin down.  Similar to pain in the arm, these can be either from a local source or referred from above.  Wrist and hand pain are often due to repetitive stress but can also result from trauma. 

A car accident, for example, can cause a wrist sprain from where you grasped the steering wheel.  If you sustained more significant injuries in the neck or low back, you may not even notice that your hand or wrist is injured for some time.  Another common cause is catching yourself during a slip and fall.  Unfortunately this becomes more common as we age and struggle more with balance.

Dr. Smith will treat the pain that you are experiencing through a combination of massage, chiropractic, and possibly physical therapy modalities.  He will also work with you to strengthen, loosen, or otherwise calm the area through a comprehensive home routine.
