Can Chiropractic Care Help With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Yes! Chiropractic techniques that work so well with the spine can be applied to other joints of the body. Virtually every joint is susceptible to fixations and malfunctions that impair function and range of motion. Trauma, micro traumas, vibrations and repetitive motions are often culprits.
In fact, there is a high probability that your wrist problem may be a misalignment of one or more joints in your neck, shoulder or elbow.
The carpal tunnel is a band of ligaments and small bones in your wrist. Painful symptoms can result when nerves are compressed by a collapse of this nerve “tunnel.”
Many are surprised to learn that the cause of their wrist problem may be due to functional changes to one or more joints of the neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. Subluxations in the upper spine may compromise the workings of any structure between it and the tip of your littlest finger.
This is often called the double crush syndrome.
Shoulders, hip problems, knees, ankles and even jaw problems have been shown to respond to chiropractic care. Do your research or talk to a specialist before resorting to more drastic relief treatments such as surgery!
It just makes sense to take the more conservative approach first. Chiropractic treatment first, drugs second and surgery last! Schedule a no obligation consultation and find out what safe and natural chiropractic can do for you.
Frequently Asked Questions About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment:
Can chiropractic repair bone spurs?
Bone spurs and other arthritic change to joints throughout the body is a common response to long standing malfunction. While no research exists, restoring proper joint function is hoped to at least slow this degenerative process.
Does cracking your knuckles cause damage?
Limited studies suggest that knuckle cracking does not damage the metacarpal joints of the hand. While there may be danger of overextending already loose knuckle joints, adding motion to these or other joints of the body is best left to an experienced chiropractor.
Is it okay to wear a wrist brace or wrist splint?
A brace is often prescribed to help protect the wrist and reduce mobility. While it may alleviate certain symptoms, it virtually ignores the malfunctioning joints causing the problem. The chiropractic approach is to help restore proper motion to affected joints and strengthen supporting muscles and soft tissues. While this may require some type of ongoing supportive care, many patients are able to resume their activities without bracing.
Do you treat cubital tunnel syndrome?
Yes we do! Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve (also known as the “funny bone” nerve), which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or weakness in the hand. The ulnar nerve runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow. Many people confuse cubital tunnel syndrome with carpal tunnel syndrome.
