Chiropractic & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is caused by pressure on the median nerve, located just above the wrist. It is one of the most common occupational health problems, affecting millions of people every year, largely thanks to our ever-increasing use of computers. Anyone can develop CTS, however, even if they are computer-phobic, as it is essentially a repetitive stress injury. This means anyone involved in repeated actions for extended periods may suffer from it, or it may be brought on by trauma to that area.
Common symptoms of CTS include wrist pain, weak grip, numbness, tingling and burning. The pain may also cause sleeping problems. Treatments vary, and can include drugs and invasive surgery, but one that is both conservative and very effective is with our physical medicine model of physical medicine rehab, chiropractic and medical service. Rehab and adjustments made to the affected area can help resolve the issue, as can work on certain areas of the back or neck, where the nerves are being impinged upon and referring pain to the wrist.
Our carpal tunnel treatment may also include nutrition to decrease swelling in the wrist, special conservative medical procedures and stretching and strengthening exercises. Many people with CTS have found that they experience great relief from their symptoms after experiencing our multi-specialty approach with this comprehensive treatment model.
