Carpal tunnel is one of the more common afflictions that affects the wrist and hand. Characterized by tingling, burning, and sensations of numbness, carpal tunnel can make it difficult to live as you would wish and may be a source of near constant discomfort. Fortunately, treating carpal tunnel can be both quick and effective, especially when you receive chiropractic care.
Unfortunately, certain people are simply predisposed to suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Women, for example, are much more likely to be afflicted with carpal tunnel than are men. Additionally, so are people with certain diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and hypothyroidism. Those working in manufacturing are also more likely to suffer from this disorder, as the stresses of the career can cause pressure on the median nerve, which is the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. Unlike other conditions of the wrist and hand, it is not always possible to detect the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. However, once the condition is present, finding the cause is not necessary for treatment.
There are a number of ways to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. Most commonly, sufferers will undergo an open release surgery to relieve pressure on the median nerve. Other people will choose methods like painkillers and exercise. One of the best ways to treat carpal tunnel non-invasively is through chiropractic care. Chiropractic care for carpal tunnel syndrome involves addressing both the affected wrist and other areas of the body, such as the elbow and spine, that may be contributing to the condition. Through the mobilization of the wrist and adjustment of the spine, a chiropractor will seek to relieve pressure in the wrist so that you can live more fully and without pain.
