What is Carpal Tunnel?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition that can occur when the median nerve in your wrist is compressed by swelling.  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common conditions affecting the nerves and previously treated with expensive surgery and medication.

Patients suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can experience  burning, pain, tingling, or swelling in the palm of the hands and extending into the first four fingers and the thumb.  Some patients report a feeling of fullness in the hand or swelling even when no swelling is visually present.  Weakness in the affected hand is usually noticed leaving the patient complaining of difficulty picking up small objects.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can play a major role in a person’s lifestyle and when left untreated, damage to the medial nerve may become permanent and leading to loss of movement in the hand.

Fortunately, Chiropractors have had much success in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome without the need for surgery or expensive medication.
