What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve within the wrist is compressed or pinched due to swelling or damage to the carpal tunnel structure. Carpal tunnel is often caused by repetitive wrist motions used in activities such as typing or playing an instrument like the guitar or piano. Symptoms of carpal tunnel include:

  • Tingling in fingers, wrists and arms

  • Weakness and trouble grasping objects

  • Numbness

  • Pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome can significantly affect an individual's quality of life. It can limit activities for work and enjoyment and increase the pain and discomfort an individual feels on a daily basis.

How Can a Chiropractor Help With Carpal Tunnel Care?

A chiropractor can assist individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome by helping relieve pressure on the nervous system. They can restore the spine by identifying misalignments and correcting them to reduce painful symptoms. An upper cervical chiropractor can address the nerves that branch out into the arms, hands and fingers from the neck region, especially the median nerve which causes carpal tunnel symptoms.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective pain relief method that targets underlying pain sources. It can bring several benefits to ease carpal tunnel symptoms, like:

  • Relieved tension

  • Reduced strain

  • Decreased compression

  • Improved wrist movement and function

  • Restored balance
