Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel
When you are researching your options, don’t forget chiropractic treatment for carpal tunnel. Do you wonder why adjustments to your spine would help a problem in your wrist? Most people don’t think of their neck when they think they have carpal tunnel. Believe it or not, many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome have origins in the neck. The nerves that go in to the hands can be impinged at the wrist but those same nerves also come from the neck and any lack of mobility in the spinal bones can interfere with the transmission of messages down the arms, into the hands. This is especially prevalent when both hands are affected.
Adjusting your spine might not be the only answer however a qualified chiropractor should be able to adjust your elbow and wrist. She or he should also be able to identify tight muscles in your forearms that impinge the nerves and use very directed muscle work techniques to fatigue out the muscle and cause it to relax.
Chiropractic offers a non-drug, non-surgical, safe and effective approach to improving your health. Chiropractic combined with stretches that are specifically designed to release the tension around the nerves in your arms is often very effective in relieving numbness, tingling and pain in the hands.
