Get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief
Looking for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief? Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) has become one of the most widespread occupational health problems we face today. It affects millions of people a year, and with our growing reliance on computers there seems to be no end in sight. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist and causes numbness, weakness, tingling, and various other problems in your hand due to the pressure being placed on the median nerve in your wrist. Pressure on this nerve can be caused by an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing, chopping, hammering, or pushing. The median nerve and several other tendons travel through your forearm and into your hand. These pass through a small opening in your wrist that is called the carpal tunnel. Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome range from wrist pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness or loss of grip strength, and loss of sleep due to discomfort. Symptoms are most often felt in the thumb, the index finger, the middle finger, and one half of the ring finger. If you feel tingling in your fingers but not in your little finger, it may be an indication that you are experiencing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The little finger receives the nerve impulses through a different nerve.
There are a number of different ways to treat this condition. In most cases, a chiropractic adjustment to the affected area is an extremely effective solution. In some cases, a misalignment in either the back or neck can cause this condition, and chiropractic manipulation of the neck and/or spine can also serve as an effective treatment option. These treatments, along with physical therapy, stretching, and strengthening exercises, can in most cases effectively alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
