Carpal tunnel syndrome is a fairly common condition that often occurs due to repetitive motions of the wrist, such as typing that irritates the median nerve in the wrist. Some common symptoms that accompany Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are numbness, tingling, weakness, or wrist/hand discomfort. Once you start to notice these symptoms and their effects on your daily activities, it is time to get the nerves and functions checked out before permanent nerve and muscle damage occurs.
When many people think of Chiropractic they think back pain, neck pain, or headaches. Yes, Chiropractic is a great solution for these symptoms but Chiropractic can help with so much more including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome! As you know your brain sends messages down your spinal cord out into 32 pairs of nerves keeping your body alive. When your spine is misaligned, it puts pressure on the nerve in that area and stops those messages from sending correctly. This causes pain in the part of the body than those messages normally reach.
Here at Cornerstone Chiropractic, Dr. Tyler aims to not only correct the misalignment but restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself. When you make an appointment to see your local chiropractor, Cornerstone Chiropractic, treatment for Carpal Tunnel treatment will consist of gentle adjustments, mobilization, and exercises to strengthen the wrist and hand.
