Loosen your grip. Get help for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Pins and needles. Shooting pains. Tingling hands. A weak grip. With carpal tunnel syndrome, even the most routine tasks can produce symptoms ranging from the uncomfortable to the unbearable. The condition can be triggered by a wide range of factors – repetitive motion, wrist sprain, fluid retention – but the resulting compressed nerve is what causes the pain.
Many people undergo invasive surgery that involves cutting ligaments, months of recovery, and the potential for nerve damage and other ghastly side effects. Chiropractic offers a non-invasive approach to opening up the channel in the wrist and giving the medial nerve some breathing room.
At ChiroChicago, we begin by listening to you. We ask about the type of pain you’re experiencing and the activities that trigger your carpal tunnel syndrome. Your personalized treatment plan may incorporate adjusting misaligned bones, methods of calming swollen tendons, soft tissue manipulation, and the use of a wrist splint to keep the channel open.
