Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Any discomfort in your hand can make it difficult to do even the simplest tasks and interfere with your life. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the hands. Do you often experience wrist pain, tingling, or numbness in your hand? You may be experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome. Our chiropractors at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic will diagnose you and then provide prompt treatment. We create customized treatment plans based on your individual condition to ensure your hands become stronger and free of pain.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: What is It?
It is a condition that causes tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand. The condition is usually caused by the compression of a major nerve known as the meridian nerve, that runs from the forearm into the hand.
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Numbness and tingling in the hand or fingers
- Difficulty doing simple tasks such as using a keyboard
- A shock-like feeling in the hand
- Wrist pain
- Hand weakness
Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Chiropractic care is very effective at treating carpal tunnel syndrome. Before the treatment, a chiropractor examines the patient physically and uses other tests such as x-rays to have a look at the tissues and bones in the wrist. We may also use an electromyogram to measure the electrical activity of the muscles.
Chiropractic care helps you find relief from the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and also treats its root cause. We provide long-lasting relief since it is uncommon for the condition to recur after treatment. Most people prefer this kind of treatment since it is non-invasive. Chiropractic care does not use medications. Most people respond well to chiropractic care.
It is crucial to seek treatment if you are experiencing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Delaying treatment can lead to permanent damage of the median nerve, resulting in chronic pain.
