Carpal Tunnel and Wrist Pain
Living with wrist pain can be an exhausting, uncomfortable, and stressful experience. Even the most mundane tasks, like writing a grocery list, typing on your work computer, holding a phone, or driving can become problematic when you have wrist pain. Wrist pain can be caused from many things including sports injuries, arthritis, gout, and Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a compression of the median nerve where it crosses the wrist. This condition causes numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain in the hand and wrist area.
Some people with carpal tunnel syndrome resort to medications, injections, and even costly surgery. Yet, these treatments could result in greater impairment and costly medical bills.
Chiropractic care can treat this condition symptomatically and without surgery. A muscle technique is used to help relieve spasms and reduce inflammation. When inflammation is eased, the compression of nerves improves, resulting in a reduction of discomfort and increased mobility and function.
