Here at Lake Worth Chiropractic and Wellness our chiropractor regularly helps patients who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a very common condition that is caused by repetitive use of the wrists. Thankfully, you can experience pain relief and treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome using chiropractic care. Find out how we help patients with this repetitive use condition.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a nerve condition associated with the wrists. The tendons in the wrist become damaged due to constant pressure. This pressure is typically caused by pressing the wrists down, which often happens when typing or writing for long periods of time. If you are suffering from carpal tunnel, the most common symptom is numbness in the fingers. You might also have tingling or pain in the fingers or wrist. The condition prevents you from using your hand, which is generally when patients seek out treatment for the condition.
If your occupation requires you to put pressure on your wrists for long periods of time, you need to be proactive in preventing carpal tunnel. Taking regular breaks from the activity is essential. You should also stretch your wrists and rotate your hands daily to help improve circulation in the median nerve. This is the nerve that is damaged resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome. You can also use massage therapy and heat therapy to reduce swelling of the tendons and muscles surrounding the median nerve. Another method for preventing carpal tunnel is to use ergonomic methods, such as a wrist pad and stationary mouse when working on a computer.
Here at our chiropractic office in Lake Worth FL we provide chiropractic care for carpal tunnel syndrome. Through chiropractic adjustments, our doctor will help improve circulation and regain mobility in your wrist and hand. In addition, chiropractic adjustments are useful for realigning your musculoskeletal system. This reduces tension to nerve endings that may be associated with the median nerve pain. We also offer massage therapy as a way to reduce swelling and pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome.
As more people are using computers and mobile devices for communication and work, we are seeing an increase in carpal tunnel syndrome. Fortunately, with chiropractic care, we can help you reduce wrist pain without having surgery. Contact our Lake Worth chiropractor at 561-547-2210 today and make your appointment for a consultation.
