Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the function of the hand when the median nerve at the wrist is compressed. Inflammation and enlargement are usually to blame for the symptoms that you experience along with carpal tunnel. However, you do not have to suffer any longer. Our chiropractor at Godfrey Chiropractic PC in Omaha can help you on your journey to healing you from your carpal tunnel.

Common Causes & Symptoms

There are certain medical conditions that may put people at a much higher risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome, such as pregnancy, diabetes, menopause, obesity, dislocation of wrist bones, and thyroid problems. Repetitive grasping or bending of the wrist may also cause a person to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Swelling and irritation of the tendons within the carpal tunnel can result from repetitive motions. Repetitive motions may be caused by holding the phone to your ear, playing the piano, or even typing a keyboard excessively.

Some of the most common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Numbness in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
  • Tingling and burning in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
  • Reduction in hand dexterity
  • Weakness, especially in the thumb
  • Poor quality of sleep due to tingling or weakness in the hand
  • Electric shock within the hand and wrist
  • Pain in the hand and wrist

Diagnosis

You should not wait for your pain to become debilitating before seeking treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome. As soon as you notice persistent symptoms, you should consult our doctor. We can conduct a thorough evaluation prior to diagnosing your carpal tunnel syndrome. Diagnostic methods may include an x-ray, ultrasound, or an electromyogram and nerve conduction study.

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor is able to determine if your carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by issues in your upper spine. If this is the case, our care will focus on the relief of pressure on the nerve. Our chiropractor provides manipulation treatment for carpal tunnel symptoms. Our massage therapy is also a long-term solution for carpal tunnel syndrome and is considered non-invasive and cost-efficient. Massage therapy is perfect for decreasing pain, numbness, and inflammation. We also provide exercises that help with carpal tunnel symptoms, including wrist extension stretches, medial nerve glides, and wrist flexion stretches.

Testimonial

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "The staff is awesome and exceptionally friendly, the insurance process is clearly explained, and the facility is very nice.
    The appointments themselves are also top notch. Dr Godfrey addressed all of my concerns, including taking an X-ray to verify the issue, explaining the treatment and the rationale behind it, and the steps needed going forward. The last part is what I really respected- many physicians may extend treatment for the sake of more money, but Dr Godfrey was able to give me instant relief and required minimal follow ups which, to me, is indicative of an honest and professional practitioner. Overall I would highly reccomend Godfrey's staff, treatment, and service."

  • "During and after my pregnancy, I've seen Bruce and Kate. I always feel like a new person after each visit. My daughter, age 2 has also been a client since she was an infant. I always recommend Godfrey chiropractic."
