Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel
Reducing The Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel With Chiropractic Care
About 3% of women and 2% of men will be diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome during their lifetime, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. These days many people have desk jobs that require a lot of time on the computer and much of that time spent typing. This repetitive task can cause carpal tunnel. It is also possible that you are performing any carpal tunnel-causing task wrong and that is why you are experiencing pain, numbness, and tingling. It is also possible you have a medical condition that is causing the carpal tunnel. According to Mayo Clinic, carpal tunnel is due to the wrist’s nerve being pinched. This can stem from repetitive over-use. Even when the day is done and you leave the office, you experience pain and discomfort. With a Carpal Tunnel Chiropractic Adjustment and chiropractic care, you will be able to rest easy and enjoy your life again.
Here are some of the benefits of using chiropractic care to reduce symptoms of carpal tunnel:
According to Chiro-Trust, added compression on the median nerve, in the cervical spine, can occur at the forearm, elbow, and neck. This added compression can worsen the symptoms of carpal tunnel. Chiropractic care is beneficial because your chiropractor is able to locate where the issue is coming from as as well as perform adjustments to the upper spine to help your wrist and elbow.
The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that in one study, the use of chiropractic care for carpal tunnel was considerably effective and the afflicted individuals had improvements that had been maintained for several months.
A visit with your chiropractor will help prevent your carpal tunnel from getting worse. It is best to consult your chiropractor as early as possible. Your doctor will be able to show you different methods to keep your carpal tunnel at bay. They can show you certain stretches and exercises to do so that you can relieve pain and prevent further damage. If you believe your problem stems from a repetitive movement, such as typing, you can discuss this with them and they may be able to show you a better way of doing the task.
The best part of going to a chiropractor is that you will avoid surgery. There is no need to go under the knife for something that can be solved in a non-invasive way. Your chiropractor can work with you on methods that work best. They may offer you a wrist support to keep your wrist in the correct position to avoid any further nerve damage. You will notice less pain and numbness soon, without any unnecessary procedures.
Chiropractic care will help you live better. You’ll see an improvement in no time and be back to doing the tasks you love with less pain. Because you’ll avoid surgery, you’ll avoid stress. It is part of your chiropractor’s job to give you peace of mind. They are trained professionals who have helped plenty of people suffering from the same issue as you. It can be difficult to want to perform any tasks when you have carpal tunnel. When you know that someone is working to help you, you will feel more at ease.
Don’t let your carpal tunnel go untreated because it can cause permanent damage. It is easiest to rid yourself of this terrible problem early on. You can start getting rid of the discomfort starting as soon as today. Say goodbye to a constant, nagging pain!
