The differential diagnosis of non-specific paraesthesia about the wrist or hand using a flow chart

, : The differential diagnosis of non-specific paraesthesia about the wrist or hand using a flow chart. Comsig Review 2(1): 5-10

A common clinical presentation in the Chiropractor's office is that of vague and unilateral paraesthesia of the wrist or hand. Often the patient is unable to identify any definite dermatomal pattern and in such cases an accurate diagnosis becomes somewhat difficult. The following paper, incorporating a flow chart, provides the clinician with a logical sequence for the clinical exam in an attempt to arrive at the correct diagnosis, particularly those with mechanical causes.
