Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common wrist and hand condition. Those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome typically feel pain, numbness, and weakness in one or both hands and wrists. Surgery is a costly and painful form of treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Chiropractic care and treatment here in Beverly Hills, CA, at Beverly Hills Comprehensive Medical Group is a less costly, more effective, and pain-free solution.
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The condition of carpal tunnel syndrome ordinarily develops over time. Increased pressure on the median nerve in the wrist causes the condition's symptoms. The median nerve is what provides feeling for the thumb, index, and middle fingers along with part of the ring finger.
What's the Carpal Tunnel?
The carpal tunnel is located inside of the wrist. It resembles a tube that allows the median nerve and tendons to attach to the forearm and hand. The tunnel consists of bone on the bottom and ligament tissue on the top. This is what the median nerve and tendons pass through, and it's also typically where the median nerve becomes inflamed and compressed.
Are Some People More Likely to Get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Than Others?
Unfortunately, some people are more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome than others. People who use their wrists and hands all day at work are more likely to develop it than others. People at higher risk of developing this condition include office workers, production line workers, mechanics, and construction workers, especially those who work with vibrating tools. The risk of developing the condition is higher with age.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
A contributing cause of carpal tunnel syndrome might be at your upper spine. That's the area where the median nerve originates, and the nerve's inflammation might originate from there, too. A displaced vertebra at or near the point of origination might be adjusted to reduce median nerve inflammation.
In addition to that, the affected wrist might be adjusted for purposes of confirming that the bones, ligaments, and tendons in the wrist are properly in place. When the intricate structures of the spine and wrist are in place, median nerve inflammation is naturally reduced without the need for painkillers or surgery.
