Carpal Tunnel and Chiropractic Care

Those who frequently work with their hands and sit at a desk on a computer may have experienced a moderate case of carpal tunnel over their career. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a progressive condition that starts with mild symptoms including a slight tingle or numbness. Some may even experience sharp, shooting pains. Unfortunately carpal tunnel syndrome doesn’t go away on its own. In fact, it’s a progressive condition.


What’s Happening Internally?

The median nerve that runs from our forearm to palm area becomes pressed and squeezed around the wrist area. This pinched nerve that causes your symptoms of tingling and numbness is the oncoming of carpal tunnel syndrome. Shockingly enough, women tend to suffer almost three times more than men. Experts suggest that this may be due to the passageway for the nerves are smaller. Also, assembly workers including positions like sewing, cleaning or manufacturing see carpal tunnel arise more often than those who work in an office position such as a data entry worker.
