What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a musculoskeletal disorder that occurs due to the compression of the median nerve. This nerve extends from the forearm all the way down the palms of the hands and the fingertips. The compression of this nerve can lead to strange and uncomfortable symptoms, including pain while writing, numbness in the ring and pinky finger, and a tingling sensation throughout the forearm.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly a result of placing the forearm on a hard surface while working at a desk. This can lead to pain in the forearm as well as weakness.
How Can a Chiropractor Treat Carpal Tunnel?
A chiropractor on our team can help provide carpal tunnel treatment by massaging the forearm and any surrounding areas affected by the compression of the median nerve. Using massage therapy and stretches along the forearm, a chiropractor on our team can help alleviate symptoms of carpal tunnel and loosen up the compressed muscles and nerve in this area.
He or she will only conduct the proper chiropractic care if he or she determines your symptoms are truly due to carpal tunnel and not another similar condition.
Will My Carpal Tunnel Return?
