Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a result of nerve compression usually within the wrist. CTS is mainly caused by repetitive micro-trauma such as improper position while typing for a long period of time. Usually, work or sports that require the wrist to be constantly bent can cause a narrowing of space between the wrist bones and its surrounding ligaments. Such narrowing will compress the Median Nerve producing numbness and tingling on the thumb side of the palm and first two fingers. A decrease in grip strength may also be experienced.
A Chiropractor will find the location of the nerve compression within the wrist and correct it. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can easily be treated with Chiropractic adjustments to the wrist followed by the use of a wrist brace if necessary. It is also very important to follow a proper nutritional diet to help aid the healing process. A series of frequent adjustments will be necessary to realign the bones of the wrist in order to restore proper tunnel size and joint spacing. Furthermore, use of anti-inflammatory or steroid injections are NOT recommended because CTS is not a chemical problem.
