thumb pain


Thumb Pain

Ann has been a patient of mine for the better part of two decades — maybe longer.  I wanted to include a testimonial she recently gave me concerning thumb pain — most particularly “DeQUERVAIN’S SYNDROME“.  Thanks Ann!

“I had developed a problem in my left thumb.  It would click at the joint when I tried to bend it, and finally got to the point where I couldn’t bend it at all.  When I would hit it or it would get bent involuntarily in day-to-day activities, the pain was so excruciating that I would nearly pass out.  I had been to a member of the medical community for a workman’s comp problem and asked what he thought about my thumb.  Without hesitation he told me it was “Trigger Thumb” and I would have to have surgery to fix it. 

I asked Dr. Schierling on my next visit, and he told me it was “DeQuervain’s Syndrome”, and that his Tissue Remodeling method of treatment would help. Since I was getting ready to leave on a trip, he did a very light treatment to see if it would help me.  It did.  It got me through my trip without pain.  When I got back he did a more intense treatment.  That’s been several months ago, and I still have full use of the hand without pain.  I have been going to chiropractors for just about 40 years and there is very seldom anything I have to see an MD about.”

Hand, WRIST, and thumb pain are common — dog common.  Usually they are some form of TENDINOSIS.  If you have CHRONIC PAIN, make sure to see if we can help before climbing on the MEDICAL MERRY-GO-ROUND and going for NEEDLESS MRI’S or CORTICOSTEROID INJECTIONS. HERE are my Blog Posts on DeQuervain’s Syndrome.
