Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common disorder that affects the hand, wrist, and arm. It happens when the median nerve in your arm gets compressed. The median nerve passes through a narrow tunnel called the carpal tunnel in your wrist. When this space becomes too small, it causes pressure on the median nerve and can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by overuse of your hands and wrists, or by being pregnant or obese. Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pain, numbness, tingling in fingers, hand weakness or clumsiness, and swelling of fingers. Some people with CTS have trouble sleeping because it can make it difficult to relax their hands at night.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Carpal tunnel is a common condition that can be relieved with chiropractic care. Carpal tunnel is a disorder that results from pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway for the median nerve and other structures in the hand. When this space becomes too tight, it puts pressure on these structures and causes pain. Chiropractic care can help carpal tunnel by relaxing muscles, realigning joints, and improving blood flow to relieve pressure on the nerve. Chiropractors may also recommend certain exercises or splints to help prevent symptoms from returning.
The condition can be extremely painful and the symptoms may not go away despite the best efforts of conventional medicine. Chiropractic care has been shown to provide relief in many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, with patients reporting pain relief in up to 80% of cases. One study found that chiropractic care was as effective as surgery for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. The study found that after a median nerve block, 57% of participants had reduced or improved their symptoms, while no participants reported worsening symptoms and only 17% had worsened symptoms.
Carpal tunnel is an issue that can affect anyone who performs repetitive tasks on a daily basis, such as typing or working with their hands. It occurs when the median nerve in your arm gets squeezed by the carpal tunnel, which is a tight space near the wrist. This compression leads to numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers, and pain in the arm, wrist and hand.
