Depends on the cause: This depends on what is causing the pain and also depends on the chiropractor. A good chiropractor may well be able to help this, but it may also be beyond the scope of chiropractic. I prefer chiropractors who use gently techniques like network and direct non-force. Also consider seeing an osteopath who does manipulation- see http://www.Academyofosteopathy.Org/node/22623.

See a DO. : Chiropractic came to its founder in a dream from the spirit world. DO training is based on modern science like MDs but they include more holistic options and some manipulation. This way the can make sure you are not missing a real medical problem underlying the achiness

Straight leg raise: An easy test to perform to see if the pain may be related to a slipped disc causing sciatica is called the straight leg raise test. If you lay flat and have a friend raise your leg without bending your knee. If this maneuver recreates the butt pain you probably have a slipped disc and should see a doctor. If not this can possibly be a simple low back sprain. See an md if pain continues.

Wrist pain: Wrist pain can be from a variety of reasons, but most likely is related to repetitive trauma from things like keyboards/computers and manual work. Other questions: any swelling, any finger swelling, any redness, any fever, any rash or other infections? Answers to these may alter the diagnosis.
