Chiropractic Techniques Could Counter Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Whittier

Chiropractic care is great for this, chiropractic care is perfect for that...you’ve heard it before-- and it’s still just white noise. You can’t bring yourself to believe that this holistic therapy, the same one that research has begun pouring out praise for, could really help with just about everything.

Yet your friends think it’s a wonder you haven’t given it a shot yet-- so all you can do is roll your eyes.

Believe me, I’ve been there. All of chiropractic care’s supposed “great health benefits” were simply too good to be true; all of the great things that I had heard weren’t going to get in the way of my good health.

But what if simple ergonomically-correct, chiropractically-sound postures were enough to extend real relief? This would involved just an improved way of composing your body day-to-day that’s also been chiropractic-approved

Well...I guess it couldn’t hurt, right?

But even chiropractic manipulation isn’t something you have to worry about, as one 42-year-old woman suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) found. The patient’s symptoms were extensive; she was afflicted with consistent pain along with “tingling and numbness in the right wrist.” These symptoms caused her to turn to chiropractic care in the hope of finding relief.

Chiropractic manipulations were administered to the woman’s cervical spine three times each week for four straight weeks. Furthermore, chiropractic care was applied to her right elbow and wrist “using a low amplitude, short lever, low force, high velocity thrust” during this same time frame. It was found that, over the course of the study, the patient noticed increasingly-significant improvements in grip strength, as well as an amelioration of motor and sensory deficiencies. Symptoms dissipated completely by study’s end, as an objective conclusion was reached through physician evaluation.

In conclusion, chiropractic care led to a significant improvement in the patient’s CTS symptoms. Further research is more than welcomed regarding chiropractic care’s prolonged potential efficacy in such patients.
