Carpal Tunnel Treatment From Our Omaha Chiropractor
At Kosak Chiropractic and Acupunture, our Omaha chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of numerous medical conditions. And contrary to what some may believe, chiropractic care can be used to treat more than just neck and back pain. For example, did you know that chiropractic treatment could help you find relief from carpal tunnel syndrome?
Causes and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Specifically, carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that affects the hands, wrists, and sometimes the lower arms as well. This condition occurs when the median nerve, which runs through each hand and wrist, becomes pinched or compressed, resulting in symptoms such as:
- shooting pain in the hands and wrists
- a numbness or tingling sensation in the hands and/or fingers
- hand or wrist weakness
Carpal tunnel syndrome can affect one or both hands, and is often caused by repetitive motions of the hands over a long period of time. As such, those who work extensively with their hands, such as those working computer desk jobs, are more prone to developing this condition.
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help
If you're experiencing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, we recommend you schedule an appointment with your chiropractor. The same applies if you have already been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome by your doctor and have been told that you may need surgery or other extensive treatment to help you find relief.
Chiropractic treatment utilizes holistic methods and techniques to help you find relief from your carpal tunnel syndromes. What many people with carpal tunnel don't realize is that imbalances along the spinal column can actually aggravate carpal tunnel symptoms by creating excessive pressure on the median nerve.
With chiropractic treatment in the form of spinal adjustment, which focuses on correcting poor alignment in the spine, it is possible to treat these imbalances. As a result, you may be able to find relief from your carpal tunnel symptoms both on an immediate and long-term basis.
