How Chiropractic Care Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Patients

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

There are many people who have to spend most of their time sitting in a chair. This usually entails working on a laptop or computer. Many people think this job may not have a significant risk of health issues, but carpal tunnel syndrome is a possibility. It is a debilitating ailment that makes it difficult for many people to do their work and fulfill their personal obligations. Chiropractic care may assist patients in overcoming this syndrome. Let's look at how chiropractic can help.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A region of the wrist and forearm known as the carpal tunnel protects the median nerve. A number of nerves control the hand's motions and other sensory functions. The ulnar nerve, median nerve, and radial nerve are among them.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by excessive usage of the wrist and fingers. If, for example, you're spending all day typing on a laptop or computer or sitting in front of a piano for prolonged periods, you may suffer from this disorder.

The median nerve is squeezed when it goes through the carpal tunnel. When the tunnel swells, it puts pressure on this median nerve. It may make it hard to move the hand and cause a variety of sensory problems.

What Are Its Symptoms?

Carpal tunnel syndrome, like other illnesses, has a wide range of intensity. When this syndrome first appears, your hand may experience a brief shock-like feeling. You may experience as if your wrist has been shocked, and you may feel it flowing into the hand.

The symptoms may become more common as the syndrome worsens. Tingling and numbness may occur on your first three fingers, from the thumb to the ring finger. Sometimes, you may also have trouble typing on your computer or sending texts on the phone. It may feel as though someone shocked your hand when you move or stretch your fingers.

The symptoms of this illness may worsen if it is not addressed. A chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic may assist you in this situation.

Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor's initial step is to examine your wrist. Adjustments may be made by the chiropractor to ensure that the tendons, ligaments, and bones are appropriately aligned. This may prevent tissues in the wrist from rubbing on the median nerve. The chiropractor may also examine the ligaments, nerves, and tendons in the arm to ensure that they are in good working order. The ability of the median nerve to operate normally depends on proper alignment.

The chiropractor may then perform further spinal adjustments and offer extra assistance to prevent problems from returning. A wrist brace may help the median nerve position rightly with the hand extremities.
