WRIST PAIN treatment in Melbourne
TENSION THROUGHOUT THE FOREARM, UPPER ARM, SHOULDER, AND PEC CAN CAUSE WRIST PAIN
MOXIBUSTION FOR WRIST PAIN TREATMENT
If you want to eliminate wrist pain, then you’ve come to the right place!
The are many possible reasons your wrist is in pain and dysfunctional. Quite often, these injuries relate to overuse of muscles in the forearm, poor posture, poor biomechanics, or even previous injury. Your practitioner at Melbourne Muscular Therapies will be able to ascertain exactly why this pain is occurring, and then be able to effectively treat the pain to ensure it is relieved.
As previously mentioned, a common cause of wrist pain is overuse of muscles in the forearm and wrist. Whether you’re a bricklayer repeating an action day in day out, or a desk jockey typing away on your computer, these muscles can become tight due to overuse. Another cause of wrist pain can be referred pain from another muscle group further up the arm, into the shoulder, and sometimes in the chest. Poor posture can lead to trigger points within muscles, which cause referred pain and dysfunction down into the arm and wrist. Lastly, previous injury to the wrist due to a sporting accident or a fall can lead to wrist pain and dysfunction.
Whatever the case, your practitioner will correctly diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate your wrist pain to ensure it does not return.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
CLEAN FIRST, BUILD SECOND!
At Melbourne Muscular Therapies we have a two-pronged approach to treatment of dysfunction.
1. The first is to ‘clean’ the body, by using our slow and penetrating technique which hits deep into the heart of the dysfunction and realigns and removes any irregularities in body tissues. This ‘cleaning’ process repairs any acute issues such as pain or immobility, which is the perfect thing to bring you quickly back to physical function and health.
2. The second is to ‘build’ the body, through our specialised strength and conditioning programs. By ‘build’ we mean realign and balance the body so that the muscular chains work in synergy, rather than having points of weakness. If the body is unbalanced, then the muscles will compensate which places pressure on the surrounding structures, ultimately leading muscular tightness and fatigue. Our ‘building’ programs are designed to ‘build up’ your weak points so that your movement pattern is permanently improved, which results in good posture and long-term sustainable physical health.
Have you always struggled to find effective, lasting relief for your chronic back pain? Do you find it difficult to bend over and pick up objects with confidence? Have you had a big session in the gym and hurt your back? Are you seeking permanent solutions to your pain? We’ve been helping people just like you for over 20 years. We commonly refer to ourselves as “the place to come when you’ve reached the end of your tether!”
