When wrist pain is due to injury you should see a Doctor ASAP. If the pain has no specific cause you should see a Doctor if the pain persists for 2-3 days.
Yes, it can help
Most chiropractors are skilled in extremity adjusting techniques. So, depending on your level of pain you can seek help from a chiropractor for your wrist pain whenever you want. You will be evaluated and properly treated without the use of drugs and it’s side effects.
I’d go in ASAP to get it checked out, if it’s a chiropractic problem then they could help you with it!
Now. In case that sounds too flippant, I would see a colleague if I was having trouble opening jars, typing, opening doors, holding weights and it didn't go away with simple stretches. The chiropractor will assess and take a history to rule out if bone in the wrist is broken or if the wrist pain is coming from your neck (it happens).

As soon as humanly possible. I have personally experienced through my practice, the sooner my patients come in for their complaints the sooner they get better, usually. Don't wait, the body has an amazing ability to minimize pain and discomfort, but it doesn't mean it can fix the problem on its own.

Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. Don't wait, go see your chiropractor as soon as possible.
The sooner the better. Chiropractic is a great entry point for any and all pain complaints. The longer you wait, the more your body will compensate and the longer a full recovery will take.
