Can Chiropractic Help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Did you know women are three times as likely as men to experience carpal tunnel syndrome? Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) affects the median nerve running from the palm to the forearm. This nerve becomes pressed at the wrist, irritating the carpal tunnel passageway that houses the median nerve, tendons, and bones.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can significantly impact a person’s ability to write, cook,type, drive, and do many other daily activities, as the hands become weak, and these normal habits turn painful. Chiropractic treatment can help with carpal tunnel syndrome, thanks to natural treatments such as gentle manipulation to alleviate nerve pressure and unpleasant symptoms.

Chiropractors use gentle manipulation to relieve pressure on the median nerve, elbow, wrist, and upper spine. Massage therapy and ice treatment may also be recommended. Chiropractors can guide patients through several pain-relieving exercises like wrist extension and flexion stretches, as well as medial nerve glides where you make a fist and extend the fingers with a straight arm and bent elbow
