Did you know that not all "Carpal Tunnel" diagnosis are actually Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel Syndrome, as well as any number of other local entrapment neuropathies, is a type of a condition that chiropractic can treat very effectively. carpal tunnel can be complicated because it often results from multiple causes, rarely just an impingement at the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is a narrow channel in the wrist that contains bone and soft tissue such as tendons, nerves, ligaments, and blood vessels. Compression to this tunnel can lead a person to feel numbness, swelling, burning, itching, weakness, or difficulty distinguishing hot and cold.
However, the problem may not lie in the carpal tunnel alone. To solve the issue it is necessary to trace the nerve back up into the neck because you can have multiple levels of entrapment, and if you have only fixed one, you have only fixed part of the problem. The treatment of it is often times at the wrist, the elbow, shoulder, neck, or somewhere in between.
Getting to the true cause — or causes - and correcting it without surgery is what chiropractic is all about. If you or someone you know thinks they have Carpal Tunnel syndrome come get checked out by doc! 330-758-9567
