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.
