Fewer conditions can disable you more decisively than carpal tunnel syndrome. This inflammation of the narrow tunnel that runs through the wrist bones causes wrist, hand, and arm pain as well as loss of motor control. If you can't afford to be without the pain-free use of one or both hands, but you dread the idea of surgery, then you need to pay a visit to Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic. We can administer non-invasive healing modalities to help you overcome your debilitating symptoms.
The carpal tunnel is a narrow space defined by the bones, tendons, and ligaments of the wrist. Threading its way through this space is an important nerve known as the median nerve. This nerve relays both sensations and motor commands to the thumb and first three fingers of the hand. When inflammation of the tissues surrounding the median nerve can pinch the nerve, you may experience "electric shock" pains, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected fingers and hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome may become a chronic situation due to repetitive motions that produce overuse injuries in the soft tissues. Musicians, artisans, athletes, mechanics, and others who work with their hands on a constant basis are all vulnerable. Some people are even born with abnormally narrow carpal tunnels that make them more prone to the disorder.
While carpal tunnel surgery can take pressure off of the median nerve, it can also cause permanent changes in your hand and finger function, and it can take quite a while to recover from. Our safe, natural techniques can relieve the underlying causes of your carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery. In some cases, chiropractic manipulation of the wrist bones can increase the space within the carpal tunnel, relieving nerve compression. If we find that your pain is actually being referred to your arm from a cervical misalignment, we can correct that as well.
A chiropractic adjustment isn't our only weapon against carpal tunnel syndrome. Massage therapy can reduce swelling and pain in the wrist's soft tissues. Physical therapy exercises can help you regain strength in a weakened hand or wrist. Once you've recovered, we can even recommend changes in your work habits or sports technique to help you keep your carpal tunnel syndrome from coming back.
Don't suffer from the pain and loss of function that accompanies carpal tunnel syndrome. Call Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic at 407-505-4320 to schedule an evaluation so we can isolate and correct the cause of your suffering.
