Chiropractic Treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

How Can a Chiropractor Treat the Ongoing Condition?

Annually, there are many individuals diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), a condition more common in women than in men. The condition causes numbness and tingling, as well as pain and burning in the hands and/or wrists and hinders the ability to grasp objects effectively.

To alleviate the discomfort, many people turn to surgery known as Carpal Tunnel Release which is, in turn, ranked among the most common surgical procedures in the U.S. The latest findings report almost half of the Carpal Tunnel Release procedures don’t relieve the symptoms of the condition. Other reports promise chiropractic treatments can help. Let’s explore Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and if you’ve been diagnosed, how your chiropractor can help treat your condition.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

In your wrist, the narrow carpal tunnel forms a passage for the median nerve to extend from your spine to your hand. The numbness or tingling feeling in your thumb and first three fingers is controlled by the nerve, which also controls thumb muscles. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when your carpal tunnel narrows, surrounding tissues swell and the nerve is compressed. The pressure on the nerve results in numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, and even a loss of feeling in portions of the hand.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often difficult to diagnose, as it mimics other conditions like arthritis or disc degeneration. Exact diagnosis can also be hindered by inconclusive research regarding causation. Some research indicates a genetic proclivity to CTS while other cases appear to a result of repetitive activity, and in some instances, CTS is the result of a smaller than average carpal tunnel. Given the difficulty in accurately diagnosing the condition as well as the lower success rates reported, invasive treatments continue, but there is an alternative—non- invasive, holistic treatments with County Line Chiro.

Your Chiropractor Can Treat Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

If your diagnosis is in doubt or uncertain, before you opt for an invasive procedure, consider seeking non-invasive treatments first. Chiropractic solutions offer alternative healing treatments for CTS. At your chiropractic consultation, your chiropractor and his or her caring staff will explore the median nerve pathway from your spine to your hand to uncover any areas of compression to the nerve which may be causing symptoms.

In addition, your chiropractor will investigate possible causes related to the cervical spine including issues affecting your vertebrae which may be related to your symptoms to discover the origin and cause of your discomfort. Once the nerve interference is identified, your chiropractor can perform gentle manipulation of the affected area to provide relief from pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness.

If you suspect you may be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, a consultation with a trusted chiropractor can give you the needed diagnosis and follow up with treatments to bring the healing and pain relief you need. Don’t leave CTS untreated, as doing so can result in permanent nerve damage to your wrist, hand, or thumb.
