Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If you're trying to avoid surgery for your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, we can help.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a progressive condition caused by nerve compression in the wrist. Its symptoms include numbness, tingling, burning, and even sharp pain in the wrist, palm and fingers.
The discomfort is gradual and each patient experiences it differently. If you sit at a desk all day and type at a keyboard, or if you perform assembly line work, you are at a higher risk of developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Conventional treatments such as rest, immobilization and medication may help to reduce inflammation that causes the nerve compression. We offer our patients additional solutions such as wrist, hand and elbow joint manipulation, stretching and strengthening exercises, and in some cases Active Release Technique. We also make recommendations for nutritional supplements, which may help with symptoms.
The structure and function of the entire body should be analyzed before considering any surgery. A full assessment of your spinal structure and how it functions with the rest of your body is worthwhile. Misalignment of the spine and how it affects your sitting or working posture could be a contributing factor to your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other physical problems.
Our care goes beyond the treatment of large muscles and skeletal joint problems. We can also provide help in managing conditions on different levels, like nerve entrapment and repetitive strain injuries (RSI) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
