Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), recognized as pain in your wrist or hand, can be frustrating and sometimes debilitating. CTS is a repetitive stress injury often associated with frequent typing on a keyboard.
Carpal Tunnel refers to the eight bones in the wrist, called carpals, which form a “tunnel” for the nerves leading to the hand.
Chiropractic care is an excellent option for patients seeking non-surgical, non-invasive pain relief.
Symptoms Of Carpal Tunnel May Include:
Painful tingling in one or both hands
- Soreness, tightness and overall pain in the wrist
- Feeling of uselessness in the fingers
A sense that fingers are swollen even though little or no swelling is apparent
- Decreased ability to squeeze things
- Pain shooting from the hand up the arm as far as the shoulder
- Loss of strength in the muscle at the base of the thumb near the palm
How We Can Improve Your Carpal Tunnel Pain
Our doctors at Current Chiropractic will make chiropractic adjustments to your wrist and elbow, as well as your upper spine, to reduce the swelling and pinched nerves in the affected joints, muscles, and tendons of your wrist.
We may advise you rest your arm, apply a cold compress to reduce inflammation, perform recommended exercises, or possibly wear a splint or brace to immobilize the area for a period of time.
