What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Your carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in your wrist formed by your carpal bones. That tunnel is covered by a tissue called the carpal ligament, where your median nerve travels from your forearm to your fingers. It's in charge of controlling the way your hand flexes. When the tissues surrounding that tunnel swell or become inflamed, they put pressure on the median nerve, causing that passageway to narrow considerably. It can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in your thumb and hand.

A multitude of problems can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, but very often, it's related to work injuries that involve repetitive hand motions (typing, for example). Proper chiropractic care like the one we provide at Somerset Family Chiropractic can help relieve symptoms of carpal tunnel.


Common Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Any condition that causes compression on the median nerve can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. It's generally more common in women because the passageway is smaller than in men or the effect of hormones on the surrounding tendons. Certain conditions like thyroid diseases can increase the chances of getting this condition.

The most common and usual culprits behind this disease are:

  • Hereditary factors (smaller carpal tunnel area)

  • Repetitive hand motions

  • Pregnancy

  • Diabetes

  • Arthritis

  • Thyroid diseases

  • Workplace factors like vibrating tools or operating assembly lines

Signs & Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can vary. With the right chiropractic treatment, these symptoms can diminish. If you're experiencing the following, call Somerset Family Chiropractic for a thorough evaluation from a carpal tunnel treatment chiropractor.

  • Hand pain

  • Wrist pain

  • Tingling and numbness that can radiate to your shoulder

  • Hand weakness (dropping objects, not being able to lift them)

If you're experiencing these symptoms on your wrist and hand, it's time to consider chiropractic treatment help.


How a Carpal Tunnel Chiropractor Can Help

To alleviate this condition, an experienced chiropractor for carpal tunnel can help with chiropractic manipulation, using a carpal tunnel wrist brace and exercises to alleviate the pain and tingling. At Somerset Family Chiropractic, you will be assessed by medical professionals who will decide the best course of action for your ailments.

After carefully considering your carpal tunnel anatomy and delivering a thorough clinical history, chiropractic care might answer your pain. We can use gentle adjustments or mobilization techniques on the wrist, hand, and forearm to improve joint mobility and reduce pressure on the median nerve. We also focus on treatments like soft tissue therapy and spinal adjustments to help alleviate your pain.
