Extreme Hand and Wrist Pain Gone After Chiropractic Care

“Before going to Dr. Garrett at Baker Chiropractic, I was experiencing a variety of symptoms that were constantly changing and continuing to worsen. At different times my symptoms aligned with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Gout, Tendonitis, Trigger Finger, Tennis Elbow and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. Confusing. What started out as a little wrist pain gradually evolved into extreme pain in both hands, wrists and arms. I was in so much pain that I could no longer type, write, cook or clean and I had lost nearly all of my independence. Over an eleven-month period I had been to fourteen doctors, including Orthopedics, Rheumatologists, a Nephrologist, Neurologists, and Pain Management Specialists. My health was declining and I was still undiagnosed.

I left my first visit with Dr. Garrett not expecting any change after one adjustment. To my surprise, by the time I arrived home from my appointment I noticed a difference in my hands. They weren’t in pain from driving. The following day happened to be Thanksgiving Day and I was the most thankful I have ever been – My hands, wrists and arms did not hurt at all! One day earlier lifting a pillow caused immense pain, and now I was holding my nephew with no problem! I finally had my life back!

Other doctors had been telling me to stop searching for an answer and just medicate – but Dr. Garrett encouraged me to go get results of earlier testing in an attempt to identify the source of the problem. Sure enough the answer was there but it had been overlooked by everyone else. Within two weeks of seeing Dr. Garrett, not only was I out of pain, but I also finally had a diagnosis! I am so grateful to have found Dr. Garrett! I don’t know where I would be without him.”

If you’d prefer to read what Dr. Garrett stated, here is the video transcript:

“Hey everyone. Dr. Garrett here with Baker Chiropractic.

And today I want to talk to you about a recent testimonial that we had from one of our patients.

Lindsay came to our office experiencing extreme pain in her hands, and the pain she described was so bad that it hurt to fold laundry. So, you can imagine how bad her pain was.

And when Lindsey came into the office, she told me that she had been to about 14 other doctors and specialists and hadn’t gotten any relief or any results from any of those treatments.

She was on numerous medications, and taking high doses of those medications, and just not getting any results.

And Lindsay brought X-rays with her, and I studied those X-rays, and I found that she had a pinched nerve in the base of her neck. And that nerve was pinched between C5 and C6, which is in the lower part of the neck. And the nerves that start there good to a large bundle of nerves called the brachial plexus. And the brachial plexus provides all the nerve supply from the lower neck down to the tips of her fingers.

So, the problem was actually in her neck, and she was experiencing the pain or the symptoms in her hands.

So, she went through an initial phase of care and, after just her first treatment, she got significant relief of the pain in her hands, and she has been doing great ever since. She is now onto her second phase of care, still zero pain in her hands, and she’s taking about half the amount of the medication that she was taking before. And her plan is to get completely off of the medication and she’s on track to do that.

So, I wanted to share that testimonial because hand pain isn’t typically what people think of when they think of chiropractic. They think of neck pain, back pain, and headaches, but that just goes to show that just because you’re having pain in a certain area that doesn’t mean that that’s where the problem is.

So, if you know anyone that is experiencing symptoms similar to what Lindsay was experiencing or other things that you might not think that chiropractic can help with, please visit our website. You can find tons of patient testimonials there. Like and share this video with someone that you know experiencing pain like that. We’d love to have them come in the office, and get an initial consultation, and see if we can help them feel better, and live a better life, and just have an overall increased quality of life.

Thanks guys.”
