Numb fingers, tingling hand and weakened grip – these are all symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition that happens when the median nerve in your wrist is compressed by swelling, often due to an underlying medical condition.
Traditionally, there were few options to deal with this problem and those available, such as surgery and medication, are invasive and expensive.
Fortunately, chiropractors are now having success treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with a more conservative and gentle approach.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is usually accompanied by sensations of burning, pain, tingling, or swelling in the palm of the hands and extending into the first four fingers and the thumb. Patients commonly experience weakness in the affected hand and have difficulty with picking up small objects.
This condition can have a major impact on a person's lifestyle and in some sever cases, if left untreated; the damage to the median nerve can cause permanent loss of movement in the hand.
The most common cause is related to occupations that involve the long term use of vibrating instruments and the repetitious use of the hands and wrist. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that develops in one or both wrists without a clear cause is the result of a nerve irritation stemming from the spine.
