Beat Carpal Tunnel Pain

Carpel_Tunnel Syndrom

There are a number of different ways to treat carpal tunnel. In most cases, specific chiropractic adjustments along with exercises and stretching to the affected area are extremely effective.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) has become one of the most widespread occupational health problems of our generation. It affects millions of people a year, and with our growing reliance on computers there seems to be no end in sight. The syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. Pressure on this nerve can be caused by an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing, chopping, hammering, or pushing (over use syndrome). It can ever be caused or made worse by sleeping with your hand bent at the wrist, often tucked up under your neck or chin. Symptoms of CTS range from wrist pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness or loss of grip strength, and loss of sleep due to discomfort.

The most common symptom of CTS is numbness and or tingling to the thumb and first two fingers. Patients often report that they have lost grip strength in the affected hand. This is usually noticed when trying to pick up something as simple as a cup of coffee.  If the symptoms involve just the last two fingers it is often misdiagnosed as CTS but is actually something just at treatable (ulnar nerve entrapment).  

There are a number of different ways to treat CTS. In most cases, a chiropractic adjustment to the affected area is an extremely effective solution. In some cases, a misalignment in either the back or neck can cause this condition, and chiropractic manipulation of the neck and/or spine may also serve as an effective treatment option if the problems start in the neck or spine. These treatments, along with both physiotherapy (stretching, and strengthening exercises) and physical modalities (e-stim, ultra sound, cold laser), can in most cases effectively alleviate the vast majority of symptoms associated with CTS.

Occasionally in particularly tough cases of CTS we need to tape the wrist. This can help re-leave symptoms while undergoing treatment. Most people can also benefit from a simple cock up splint purchased at one of the local drug stores or mart store. Wear the splint nightly to bed. This will hold the wrist in the proper posture through the night and eliminate additional damage done by sleeping wrong.
