Identifying the Root Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Our wrists are constantly exposed to extenuous stress and pressure, which is how carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) starts to develop. CTS typically develops in our median nerve that begins in the hand and stretches to the forearm. When one starts to experience frequent pain, tingling, or numbness, it’s likely because that median nerve has become compressed in the carpal tunnel, which is a narrow tunnel within our wrists that’s filled with bones, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments, and tendons.

The symptoms of CTS can ultimately start to worsen over time, with pain expanding from the wrist and foreman all the way up to the shoulder possibly beyond. This is why early diagnosis and immediate treatment is crucial for preventing further progression of symptoms, as well as avoiding more demanding forms of treatment such as medication dependency or surgery.

How Can a Carpal Tunnel Chiropractic Help?

The top priorities for chiropractors is to identify the source of the pain and contribute to the overall management and alleviation of any CTS symptoms. By utilizing newfound technology, chiropractic specialists can quickly assess a patients’ spine and nervous system to identify whether that’s the root of what’s causing further CTS pain, and ultimately treat symptoms with specific chiropractic care.

Here are a few possible processes and procedures chiropractors have been known to perform on CTS patients:

  • Performing spinal adjustments, X-ray screenings, or ultrasounds over the carpal tunnel to identify and treat primary sources of pain
  • Incorporating specific chiropractic techniques intended to improve muscle imbalance and posture
  • Determining whether spine nerve root irritation or muscle dysfunction in the neck is progressing CTS symptoms
  • Introducing chiropractic care that specifically focuses on reducing inflammation, pain, or numbness associated with carpal tunnel through relaxation and lengthening of neck, shoulder, wrist, forearm, elbow, and hand muscles
