Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In addition to working well on the spine, chiropractic techniques can also be useful for other joints of the body. Almost every joint has the potential to malfunction and cause impaired movement, pain and less range of motion. Trauma, repetitive movements and vibration are usually responsible.

The band of small bones and ligaments in the wrist is known as the carpal tunnel. Any type of collapse in this area can cause severe pain. It is even possible that the culprit could be due to changes in the joints of the wrist, elbow, shoulder and neck. Problems in the upper spine may cause difficulty in any area from the spine itself to the little finger. This is known as double crush syndrome.

Chiropractic methodologies can relieve pain in the jaw, shoulders, hip, knees and ankles. Before resorting to medication or invasive surgery, consult our chiropractic practice. Your consultation carries no obligation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What about bone spurs?

Restoring proper function of the joints can at least slow the deteriorating process of bone spurs and other arthritic problems.

Are there any issues with popping the knuckles?

A few studies have demonstrated that while cracking knuckles does not harm the metacarpal joints in the hand, it is possible to overextend loose knuckle joints.

Will a wrist brace help?

Some symptoms may be alleviated but the underlying cause is not addressed with mobilization. Chiropractic manipulation aids in restoring proper motion in affected joints and strengthening the soft tissues and muscles that support them.
