CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Do you type a lot? Have an office Job? Work in manufacturing? Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused when the nerve in the wrist (medium nerve) is pinched or entrapped in the wrist. Pressure on the nerve causes numbness and tingling in the hands. Carpal tunnel syndrome tends to affect people whose jobs require repetitive motions such as typing, writing and/or using tools. Surgery is always an option but conservative care such as chiropractic is a safe and effective alternative. It is important to exhaust all options before surgery is performed.
With chiropractic care, our goal is to identify the stressors causing your carpal tunnel, and treat it using chiropractic manipulative therapy, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue therapy and make the necessary lifestyle changes to help you become your best.
