Carpal tunnel syndrome is a result of the median nerve running from the forearm to the hand becoming compressed or squeezed while passing through the narrow passageway in the wrist, known as the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is formed by the bones and ligaments in the wrist and is responsible for protecting the median nerve, as well as the tendons that control movement in the hand and fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including misalignments in the spine or arm, repetitive hand movements, wrist injuries, obesity, pregnancy, and certain medical conditions such as arthritis or diabetes. Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome may include Chiropractic treatment, rest, splinting and exercises, depending on the severity of the condition and the individual’s symptoms.
Chiropractors may use various techniques to address this compression and alleviate the associated symptoms. One common technique used by chiropractors for carpal tunnel syndrome is spinal and arm adjustments. This involves the application of controlled force to the joints to improve their alignment and mobility. Spinal and arm adjustments may help to reduce pressure on the nerves that contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Another technique that chiropractors may use for carpal tunnel syndrome is wrist adjustments. This involves applying a gentle force to the wrist joint to improve its mobility and relieve pressure on the median nerve.
Chiropractors may also recommend stretches, exercises and lifestyle modifications to help alleviate carpal tunnel symptoms. Exercises may include stretching and strengthening the wrist and hand muscles to help improve their flexibility and reduce pressure on the median nerve.
Preventing and managing carpal tunnel syndrome involves a combination of lifestyle changes, ergonomic modifications, and Chiropractic treatment. Here are some strategies that may help:
