Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Pressure on this nerve can be caused by an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing, chopping, hammering, or pushing. The result may be pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm.
In most cases, a Chiropractic adjustment to the affected area is an extremely effective solution. In some cases, a Chiropractic manipulation of the neck and/or spine can also serve as an effective treatment option. Chiropractic treatments, along with physical therapy, stretching, and strengthening exercises, can in most cases effectively alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms associated with CTS.
