Wrist tension is never a good thing when it comes to daily occupational tasks. Repeated movements such as twisting, bending, and grasping can make it difficult to complete your job. The hand/wrist has 27 bones and 20 muscles along with tendons and joints that can become inflamed or injured with constant use. If you are one of the many people who suffer from occupational wrist pain, it is important to have your pain evaluated by medical professional for proper diagnosis.
Wrist arthritis is inflammation that causes pain and stiffness in the joints. Over time, the cartilage on the ends of your bones can deteriorate and cause bones to rub together. This is called osteoarthritis. This wear and tear causes other tissues in the wrist to produce inflammatory cells, furthering the damage. Triggers that can cause a osteoarthritic flare up include work stress, cold weather, environmental pressure changes, repetitious movements, overuse, and infection. While there is no cure for wrist osteoarthritis, there are things you can do that will help. These treatment options include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and making small lifestyle adjustments. A CBD topical can be a beneficial helper to physical therapy and can be personalized to meet your needs and help with recovery, pain relief, and reduction of inflammation.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is medical condition due to compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The pain symptoms include pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist and hand and may extend up the arm. Types of work that are associated with carpal tunnel wrist pain include computer work, work with vibrating tools, and work that requires a tight grip.
A wrist sprain occurs when the tendons are stretched beyond their limits or actually tear. This typically happens when the wrist is bent. Wrist sprains typically happen in daily activities such as work, sports, and recreation. Symptoms associated with wrist sprains include pain, swelling, tenderness, popping, and warmth around the affected area. CBD can be beneficial towards reduce pain and swelling of sprained wrists.
CBD salves can help manage pain, aches, and soreness after a physical therapy treatment. JaneVape’s full spectrum salve in particular is a soothing and pain-relieving topical cream made from all-natural ingredients and a full spectrum of cannabinoids. The benefit of using a balm after your wrist arthritis treatment session is that you can target specific areas where you experience pain the most. Apply a pea-sized amount of salve to the target area 1 times a day until the pain subsides. Results can be felt within a few minutes, and relief can last over 24 hours. Most importantly, the cannabinoids do not reach the bloodstream, so pain relief is localized where applied.
