Carpal Tunnel Pain?

chiropractic care for carpal tunnel

When looking for help with carpal tunnel syndrome a chiropractic office in Burke VA can help.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is associated with problems in the median nerve. This nerve extends from the forearm into the palm of the hand. If the nerve experiences excessive pressure or pinching, it results in a burning or tingling numb sensation in the pointer and middle fingers (although not the pinky finger).This condition sometimes arises because the carpal tunnel is simply more narrow than normal.

Am I at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome typically is only seen in adults. Women have a much higher likelihood of developing this condition because the carpal tunnel tends to be smaller in females than males. Most people will experience issues in their dominant hand that progressively worsens. People who have conditions that affect the body’s nerves like diabetes may also be more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

How can chiropractic care relieve carpal tunnel syndrome?

Before Dr. Go can determine the best course of action for carpal tunnel syndrome, it is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. This is done by performing a physical examination in addition to obtaining X-rays of your hand and wrist. Your chiropractor may advise you to rest the affected arm for a period of time, although immobilization is not considered necessary for treatment anymore. Dr. Go uses a more modern approach, adjusting the carpal bones to take pressure off the median nerve tunnel in the wrist. Furthermore, Dr. Go may also recommend using ice to reduce any inflammation and stretching and exercising.

Another goal of carpal tunnel treatment is to correct any misalignment in the spine to relieve pain and promote the body’s natural healing abilities. Dr. Go can also provide adjustments to the extremities. For example, he can manipulate the arm to release the pathway of the median nerve and other common areas of impingement.

If you are suffering from the pain and discomfort associated with carpal tunnel syndrome, call Dr. Go’s office to find out how chiropractic care can help your symptoms.
