What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of a large nerve, the median nerve, running down your arm and into your palm. This nerve controls your thumb and first two fingers, which makes it especially challenging to deal with on the day-to-day. The nerve gets compressed because of swelling and inflammation.
There are many causes of inflammation in the hand and wrist, including diabetes, injuries, overuse, and high blood pressure.
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Carpal tunnel syndrome is easy to diagnose because its symptoms are similar in almost all cases. For many people, it starts with some numbness and tingling in the thumb and fingers, with the discomfort growing from there.
You may also be experiencing burning sensations and shooting pains up your arm and into your back and shoulder. Ignoring symptoms will only make them worse.
The symptoms of carpal tunnel may include:
- Numb / Tingling Thumb & Fingers
- Shooting Pain Up The Arm
- Burning Sensation In Hand/Arm
- Wrist Pain
- Weak Hand Muscles
Chiropractic Care For CTS
While there are many carpal tunnel treatment options, chiropractic care is one of the best choices to relieve symptoms in a natural and noninvasive way. The root cause of nerve compression can usually be traced further up the arm into the neck, shoulders, and spine.
Chiropractic treatments may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy exercises. Often, a wrist brace is worn during the treatment period can prevent causing more inflammation and overuse.
Our alternative carpal tunnel therapies include a multi-faceted approach that is effective for most people.
