Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful, hand-weakening nerve entrapment in the wrist that afflicts millions of Americans. While it is famously known for attacking people working for long hours at their computers, it also commonly troubles mechanics, factory workers, musicians, baristas, hair stylists and anyone else who works with their hands for several hours a day. You may be developing carpal tunnel syndrome if you notice your hands and fingers going numb frequently, sometimes even waking you up at night with painful pins and prickles. It can also hurt when you try to use your hands. And your hands can actually lose strength, making it hard to lift things or work normally. Sometimes, a shooting pain will go from your wrist, all the way to your shoulder. Fortunately, chiropractic care is a very successful way to alleviate carpal tunnel syndrome for the long haul.
Natural, Non-Invasive Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The carpal tunnel is the rigid, bony tunnel in your wrist that houses several tendons, the transverse ligament and the median nerve. The median nerve controls the feeling and function of your hand and fingers. If the tendons swell up due to repetitive motion stress or other health conditions, they pinch the median nerve, which leads to the aforementioned symptoms of pain, numbness and weakness. Factors that increase your risk of carpal tunnel syndrome include working repetitively with your hands, pregnancy, obesity, diabetes, hypothyroidism and excessive alcohol, caffeine and tobacco use.
Chiropractic care is a great way to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome without the drugs or surgery that are traditionally mentioned as treatment options. Dr. Uzelman will give you a full examination and talk with you to discover the root causes of your carpal tunnel syndrome.
