Non-Invasive Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Symptoms and Treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common soft tissue repetitive strain injuries. It is caused by forceful and repetitive movements that result in pinching of the median nerve, so those who suffer from carpal tunnel feel painful tingling shooting from their hand up to their shoulder, and lack of control and muscle strength in their hand.

Non-invasive treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome

Every year, more and more people are diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, which is why carpal tunnel surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed in the US. New statistics, however, report that a large part of these surgical procedures is unsuccessful in relieving the symptoms of this syndrome. For that reason, in the last few years, people show interest in non-invasive treatments and choose chiropractic treatment.

How can chiropractic treatment help with carpal tunnel syndrome?

Given the discomfort of carpal tunnel syndrome, chiropractic treatment is all about a gentle and conservative approach. The treatment we offer consists of performing an evaluation of the patient’s condition and formulating an individualized treatment plan that will correct the nerve interference in the spine. What has spine got to do with carpal tunnel syndrome? Chiropractors have known for years that the root of the pain is in the spine, not the wrist or the arm. That’s why we first relieve the pain and irritation in the wrist, and then we put our focus on the neck. Our chiropractic treatment includes spinal adjustment and triggers point therapy and exercises that help the patient heal faster.

Chronic pain can take its toll on the patient’s life both physically and emotionally. Carpal tunnel syndrome makes the sufferer powerless over their body. We are aware of all that and that’s why we work with our patients to relieve and heal the pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. That way, the patient can easily manage and improve their health.

Of all treatment choice for this condition, chiropractic treatment offers the benefits of being an effective treatment while employing various non-invasive tactics. The median nerve (where lies the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome) originates in the cervical spine, which is why we investigate the spinal vertebrae because that might be the cause of nerve compression. Our methods are not painful; they include gentle manipulation of the elbow and wrist, as well as the cervical spine.

As with any other condition, if left untreated, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause serious and even permanent damage to your hand. So, if you think you might suffer from this condition, we advise you to visit us today because if we react in a timely manner, we will save you from undergoing a surgery.
