Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If you are having pain in your hand and wrist, it can be important to figure out if you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. If you know what you're dealing with, you will better understand your treatment options.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by an irritated median nerve in your wrist. The median nerve can become irritated where it passes through a narrow area (the carpal tunnel) that it shares with ligaments. It is common for these ligaments to become swollen due to injury or overuse, and swollen ligaments may press on the median nerve. This can cause shooting pain and numbness. It can even cause weakness in the muscles in your hand, which may make your hand difficult to use.
Our Treatments for Carpal Tunnel
We offer different treatments that may be effective for carpal tunnel. Spinal manipulation may help with this condition because cases of carpal tunnel might be affected by spinal misalignment which spinal adjustments can help solve.
We also offer massage therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome. We may target the swollen and inflamed tendons in your wrist during your massage sessions. This might not only result in pain relief, but it may also help the tissue to heal. When you start to heal and the swelling goes away, the pressure on your median nerve will decrease. This can result in a significant improvement in your carpal tunnel syndrome.
