Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
In 1990 it cost U.S. employers alone 20 billion dollars and accounts for 61% of all job injuries in 1991.
Carpal Tunnel Chiropractic Treatment
Carpal Tunnel is only one of many wrist and elbow overuse disorders. It must be ruled out from at least nine other musculoskeletal disorders in that same area.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is characterized by numbness, tingling, or burning sensation, weakness of grip strength. It’s hard sleeping due to these symptoms. It is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. This nerve travels through the carpal tunnel which is bordered by the carpal (wrist) bones and the transverse carpal ligament. Chiropractic manipulation of the carpal bones and spinal manipulation can be extremely effective for this problem. It’s hard to think of one job that doesn’t entail overuse of our wrists.
You Don't Have to Live with Pain
Other forms of treatment are steroid injections which do not treat the actual problem and symptoms return. Some recommend surgery which can lead to scarring of the transverse ligament, therefore later causing the symptoms to reoccur. Also surgery may weaken the ligament. As I always say, surgery must be the last resort if conservative treatment fails to correct the problem.
