What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) affects the median nerve. This nerve exits your spine at your neck, travels down your arm terminating shortly after going through a narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve provides sensation to the palm of the hand, thumb and all fingers other than the pinkie.
Pressure on the median nerve causes carpal tunnel symptoms of numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. It can also cause discomfort or pain in the wrist or hand and symptoms can occasionally radiate up the forearm. Carpal tunnel syndrome can interfere with activities involving the hand. In more advanced cases, it can make holding onto and manipulating objects quite difficult. Fortunately for most people, carpal tunnel relief does not require surgery.
Chiropractic Carpal Tunnel Treatment – A Sensible Non-surgical Approach
Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team can effectively treat soft tissue and repetitive-injury disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Our experienced Arlington Heights chiropractor team will examine, assess and develop an individualized carpal tunnel treatment plan. In addition to the wrist and hands, they will examine the arms, shoulders, neck and spine.
While carpal tunnel symptoms may only be present in the hands, the nerve may be pinched anywhere along its course making it often misdiagnosed. Depending on the location of the problem, chiropractors gently manipulate the tissues that are compressing the nerve. This has been a very effective approach in carpal tunnel treatment as it takes pressure off the median nerve without surgery. Our chiropractors will also teach you exercises and lifestyle changes that can help keep pressure off the nerve rendering long-term carpal tunnel relief.
