Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is caused by repetitive motion, such as typing, texting, or performing assembly line work. Over time, such actions may produce pain and injury. Most people with CTS experience tingling or numbness in the fingers or hand or weakness in the hand.

What many don’t realize is the cause of their wrist problem may be due to functional changes to one or more joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

Our Natural Approach

We will provide gentle chiropractic care to address the problematic wrist and elbow, as well as adjust your upper spine. It also may be advisable to rest the affected arm, apply cold to decrease inflammation and perform specific exercises. You also can wear a splint or brace to immobilize the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

A brace is often prescribed to help protect the wrist and keep it immobilized. While it may alleviate some symptoms, wearing a brace doesn’t address the malfunctioning joints that are causing the problem. Chiropractic care addresses the root cause.

How many visits will I need?

It’s important to know that not everyone is going to see a difference in one visit. Sometimes it will take a few more.

I’ve previously had surgery for my CTS; can chiropractic still benefit me?

If you have had surgery for CTS in the past, then chiropractic care for your carpal tunnel may not prove beneficial. That’s because once your body undergoes a surgery like carpal tunnel surgery, it’s not in the original design. That’s why we encourage those with CTS to seek chiropractic first before surgery.
