An Alternative to Surgery
For many years surgery has been a common solution offered by medical doctors for patients who suffer from carpal tunnel. Unfortunately, around 75 percent of those who go through surgery for carpal tunnel find that their symptoms come back – often within just a few years. With such poor outcomes, the need for alternatives to surgery for carpal tunnel is obvious.
Recent studies have shown that the cause for carpal tunnel may not be in the wrist or elbow as is commonly assumed. The studies demonstrated that those who suffer from carpal tunnel also suffer from a reduced range of motion in the neck – stiffness, and immobility that may indicate a problem with the spine, not just the wrist.
Chiropractic care seeks to achieve total body balance by correcting misalignments in the spine. We have found that by correcting issues with the neck and back, many patients see a reduction or elimination of their carpal tunnel symptoms.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Our success in treating carpal tunnel patients comes from taking a holistic, whole-body approach. We provide a range of treatments that complement each other, leading to better overall health. After we address the initial inflammation in your wrist and elbow, we will look deeper to determine where the source of your irritation is coming from. The treatments we offer may include:
- Manual Adjustments - The stiffness in your neck and/or back may be caused by subluxations, otherwise known as misalignments in the vertebrae. When your vertebrae slip out of place, it can put pressure on the nerves in your back, cause muscle tightness and spasms, and cause a cascade effect that leads to a range of symptoms – including wrist irritation. By applying specific pressure to your back and neck, we can shift your vertebrae back to their correct positions and begin the healing process.
- Massage Therapy - A massage is a powerful tool for addressing soft tissue problems. Massage can break up adhesions, reduce inflammation and relieve stiffness.
- Spinal Decompression - We gently stretch your back and neck to create space for improved circulation and for your discs to shift to their correct positions.
