Carpal Tunnel

wrist painCarpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects many individuals due to repetitive strain from various activities such as sports, work, and texting. Additionally, poor ergonomic positioning at a desk and incorrect hand posture while sleeping can contribute to its development. This syndrome occurs when there is inflammation or pressure on the nerves as they pass through the carpal tunnel, a bony structure in the wrist.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Typically, individuals with CTS experience tingling or numbness in their fingers or hands and weakness in the affected hand. However, many people don’t realize that the root cause of their wrist problem may stem from functional changes in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist joints.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

While a wrist brace can provide temporary relief and protect the wrist from further damage, it does not address the dysfunctional joints that are at the root of the problem. Chiropractic care addresses the underlying cause of CTS, providing a more comprehensive and effective solution.

How many visits will I need?

In most cases, significant improvements can be achieved with four to six treatments. However, the actual number of visits needed may vary depending on the severity of your condition and how your body responds to treatment.

I’ve previously had surgery for my CTS; can chiropractic still benefit me?

Absolutely. It is not uncommon for patients who have undergone surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome to seek further relief through chiropractic care. Many individuals have found additional benefits and improved outcomes with our holistic approach.
