Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition where pain, numbness, as well as a tingling feeling are felt in the hand caused by the median nerve being compressed as it travels through the carpal tunnel located in the wrist. This condition affects millions and is one of the leading occupational health issues due to the wide-spread use of handheld electronic devices. Though anyone involved in an occupation that involves repeated use of the hands throughout the day is also susceptible to CTS.
Additional symptoms include hand and wrist weakness, hand clumsiness, burning, and lack of quality sleep. There are many different approaches to treatment including prescription drugs, invasive surgeries, and more effectively chiropractic care. Treatment can be and through minute adjustments in the hands, wrists, neck, and back where the nerves are being compressed. This combined with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the supporting areas can provide tremendous relief of their symptoms for many years to come.
