Carpal Tunnel

Treat Carpal Tunnel with Chiropractic Care Instead of Invasive Surgeries

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is very common and causes weakness, tingling, or numbness in the hand.  It often starts with fingers becoming numb at night.  This occurs because the hand is relaxed while sleeping.  When morning comes, the hand may feel numb and tingly with sensations that run all the way up to the shoulder.  In time, this condition will become more severe and cause muscle cramping, loss of grip strength and coordination, and in extreme cases, the loss of function of the hand.  It is important to get care early on in the progression of this condition.  Talk to our chiropractor at Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Imperial about treatment options.  A chiropractor can help treat this condition without resorting to a costly surgery that could come with complications and a lengthy recovery time.


Who is Most at Risk for Developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel is caused by repetitive activities that strain the soft tissue.  People across a variety of industries and who enjoy an assortment of hobbies may end up suffering from this condition.  Those who knit or crochet, type for many hours of the day, play sports such as golf or tennis, work on an assembly line, or have a job such as an electrician or carpenter could find themselves at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome.

How is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Diagnosed?

Our Imperial Chiropractor will begin by asking questions about symptoms, activities, and medical history.  There will then be a physical exam to determine the root of the problem.  The chiropractor will take look at the wrist to check for swelling, tender or discolored areas, and warmth.  Each finger will be checked to see if any feeling has been lost and the chiropractor will also check to see how strong the muscles in the hand are.  Depending on the results, more tests may be performed or ordered.

What Does Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Involve?

Chiropractic treatment aims to discover the root of the problem.  A chiropractor can adjust the joints in the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, but also will trace the issue to the source.  The pain and inflammation from carpal tunnel is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which originates in the neck.  This means that adjustments to the upper thoracic and cervical spine will also ease pain and discomfort.  In addition to adjustments, stretches and exercises will also be used to restore health.
