    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can drastically affect your quality of life and productivity. Whether you work at a desk, operate machinery or are pregnant, please do NOT ignore this problem.

    We have found that the majority of people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome have misalignments in the bones that make up the carpal tunnel. This is where blood vessels and nerves pass through the wrist to supply the hands and fingers. Just like misalignments of the spine, misalignments in your hands can cause significant issues over time. Whenever there is abnormal blood flow or nerve pressure, it should be addressed as soon as possible.

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, causing pain, numbness, and weakness in the hand and wrist. It is often caused by repetitive motion or improper wrist positioning, and it can be worsened by certain medical conditions.

    Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option for carpal tunnel syndrome. At our clinic we use a variety of techniques to reduce pressure on the affected nerve, including manual adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and wrist supports. Additionally, chiropractors can provide patients with exercises and stretches to improve wrist strength and flexibility, as well as advice on ergonomic practices to prevent future injuries.

    If you’re experiencing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, chiropractic care is a safe and effective alternative to surgery or medication.

    Double Crush Syndrome

    Double Crush Syndrome is a compression of nerves at two or more locations. This can intensify your symptoms.

    There are many locations where nerves can become compressed as your brain sends messages down the spinal cord, through the shoulders, elbows and wrists to the hands. At each location, misalignments can cause pressure on those nerves. When there are 2 or more locations that are compressed, the nerve will be affected exponentially. This is why carpal tunnel syndrome can come back after surgery.

    It is important to receive a thorough examination prior to treatment. Specific and gentle chiropractic care is an extremely effective approach.

    *Important reminder – There are multiple nerves that can cause numbness and tingling into the arms, wrists and hands. This is why we do a thorough examination to determine which nerve is involved and where the damage is coming from. We are not interested in covering up the symptom, we are looking for true correction so the problem doesn’t come back.
