Chiropractic care is the conservative choice for relief from carpal tunnel syndrome. Chiropractic correction of carpal tunnel syndrome may involve gently adjusting your hand, arm, shoulder, and/or spine. By adjusting the joints and soft tissues extending from your cervical spine (neck) to your wrists, we can help free your system of nerve interference.
Even if your pain is in one area, our aim is to remove interference along all areas of the nerve. This can actually help to eliminate the swelling within the carpal tunnel area of your hands.
Traditional treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome include the use of medication, wrist supports, steroid injections, and surgery. Yet, none of these approaches corrects the problem at the source. In fact, recent reports reveal even surgeons admit that compression is not always at the wrist.
Carpal tunnel surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States. It involves cutting the transverse ligament in the wrist to "open" the carpal tunnel and release pressure on the nerve.
Is it any wonder that patients often have symptoms long after the surgery? Hand surgery does not correct nerve pressure that may have actually started in the neck or shoulder!
Our goal is to get you moving freely again, without pain, without drugs, without surgery, and without disrupting your active lifestyle.
