Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that affects the hands and wrists. It is caused by a compressed nerve in the wrist and can lead to symptoms such as pain, tingling, and numbness in the fingers and hands. Traditional treatment options for CTS include rest, splinting, and medications. However, many individuals have found chiropractic treatment an effective option for managing CTS.

Chiropractic Treatment for CTS

One of the main benefits of chiropractic treatment for CTS is its ability to target the root cause of the problem. Many cases of CTS are caused by a misalignment in the bones of the wrist and hand, which can put pressure on the nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel. By addressing these misalignments, a chiropractor can alleviate the pressure on the nerve and reduce symptoms of CTS.

Another benefit of chiropractic treatment for CTS is that it is a non-invasive and drug-free option. Unlike surgery or medications, which can have significant side effects, chiropractic treatment is a safe and natural way to manage CTS symptoms. This makes it an ideal option for individuals who are looking to avoid surgery or drugs.

Chiropractic treatment for CTS typically involves a combination of adjustments, stretches, and exercises. During an appointment, a chiropractor will perform an examination to identify any misalignments in the bones of the wrist and hand. They will then use adjustments and other manual techniques to correct these misalignments. Additionally, a chiropractor may also provide stretches and exercises to help strengthen the muscles in the wrist and hand, and prevent future CTS symptoms.
