Our Chiropractors Provide Relief for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chiropractic care is a highly successful treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome because it addresses all the possible root causes behind the pain. Chiropractor our chiropractors, Dr. Melad, or Dr. Untalan will first do a complete examination to diagnose why you are having wrist pain and dysfunction. In addition to examining the wrists and arms, our chiropractor will also examine your spine for vertebral misalignments that can also play a role. Many factors can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, including:

Subluxation in the neck

A vertebral misalignment in the neck often pinches nerves that control your arms, wrists, and hands. Subluxations can be caused by poor posture or injury.

Local inflammation in the wrist

The carpal tunnel is a rigid, bony tube through which your median nerve passes. The tendons that share this space can become inflamed due to overuse or injury, which will cause local squeezing of the nerve.

Poor posture and ergonomics

Excessive forward head posture from craning your neck over a desk or mobile device can cause subluxations that affect nerves controlling your arms and wrists. Poor ergonomics of the arms, wrists, and hands while working can also cause problems for the median nerve locally.

Other factors such as hormonal changes and swelling during pregnancy and complications from diabetes can adversely impact carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chiropractic Care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome responds extremely well to chiropractic care because it resolves pinched nerves through improved spinal alignment, whether those nerves are in the cervical spine (neck) or in your wrist itself.
