Carpal Tunnel

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a prevalent condition that affects the hands and wrists, causing pain, numbness, and tingling sensations. This condition occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist. This compression can lead to several uncomfortable symptoms that impact your ability to work or perform daily tasks. Ponte Vedra Wellness Center in Ponte Vedra Beach and Nocatee, FL, is here to tell you about carpal tunnel syndrome and how chiropractic care can treat it.

.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Several factors can contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive hand movements like typing on a keyboard or operating machinery can strain the wrist and contribute to inflammation and swelling. Conditions like arthritis, diabetes, and thyroid disorders can also increase the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Individuals with jobs or hobbies that require repetitive wrist movements are particularly susceptible to this condition.

Recognizing Symptoms

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome typically manifest gradually and worsen over time. Some of the most common symptoms of this condition include numbness or tingling in the thumb, index, and middle fingers, weakness in the hand, and a sensation of pins and needles. Individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome may also have trouble gripping objects or performing tasks that require fine motor skills. Symptoms often worsen at night or during activities that involve flexing the wrist, such as driving or reading.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Carpal Tunnel?

Chiropractic care can offer a safe and effective approach to managing carpal tunnel syndrome. Your chiropractor can identify and address musculoskeletal issues contributing to carpal tunnel syndrome. After evaluating your condition and determining the underlying cause of your pain, your chiropractor will use one or more of the following to give you pain relief:

  • Spinal adjustments: Your chiropractor can improve nerve function and reduce pressure on the median nerve by realigning the spine.
  • Wrist and arm adjustments: Similar to spinal adjustments, targeted manipulations of the wrist and arm joints can help improve mobility and reduce inflammation in the carpal tunnel.
  • Soft tissue therapy: Techniques like massage and mobilization can help improve blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and promote healing in the affected area.
  • Therapeutic exercises: Strengthening and stretching exercises can help improve wrist and hand function, reduce pain, and prevent future episodes of carpal tunnel syndrome.
