Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common result of repetitive motions to abnormally functioning joints of the spine, arm, and wrist. When chiropractic techniques are applied, range of motion and normal function can be improved and painful inflammation reduced without drugs or surgery. Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by your Ormond Beach chiropractor has a very high success rate.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a very prevalent occupational health problem, affecting literally millions of people per year. Computer use is one of the main factors contributing to this rising tide of wrist, arm, and hand pain. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. Perhaps an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing or gripping led to the disorder. Other symptoms include numbness, tingling, burning, weakening grip, and loss of arm strength.
Treating this ailment with chiropractic care is very effective. Treatment will range from adjustments to the affected wrists or sometimes treatment of the back or neck. Manipulations of the spine by your Ormond Beach chiropractor will often lead to relief of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome discomfort. Combined with physical therapy, stretching, and strengthening, this is a disorder that has a good chance to be eradicated.
