Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Carpal Tunnel Treatment typically develops gradually and progressively worsens with time. However, if you treat it as soon as possible, you can stop or slow it down. You have many treatment alternatives, from chiropractic to surgery. Aloha Sports Chiropractic is at the forefront. The carpal tunnel is the part of your wrist where the nerve enters the hand. It is a disorder that causes numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hands. We also call it median nerve compression. It occurs because of pressure on your median nerve. It travels the entire length of your arm before passing through your wrist and ending in your hand. Thanks to the median, all your fingers, except your pinky, can move and feel.

Main Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Often, individuals are oblivious to the reasons behind things. It develops by repetitive wrist movements, such as those you make while typing. Usually, the median nerve gives the thumb side sensation and movement. The palm, thumb, index, middle, and thumb side of the ring finger are all included in this. A few more carpal tunnel syndrome causes are:

1. De Quervain’s tendinosis

De Quervain’s tendinosis causes swelling in the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. These swollen tendons then attach to the base of the thumb. Tendinosis happens when the sheath the tendons pass through to travel from the wrist to the hand becomes compressed.

2. Extreme wrist motions

When the tunnel in the wrist gets smaller, it causes discomfort. This affects people who often use their hands and wrists at work or play. People who do activities or jobs that use their fingers a lot are at risk of getting this syndrome.

3. Trigger finger

The two non-traumatic connective tissue disorders of the hand that are most frequent are trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome. Both of these ailments often co-exist in people with rheumatoid arthritis. The trigger finger is a painful condition. It makes the fingers or thumb lock when bent.

4. Vibration

The risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is well-recognized to increase with exposure to hand-transmitted vibration. Vibration may result in symptoms by directly or indirectly influencing the median nerve or the nearby tissues.

5. Arthritis

At times, arthritis can develop Carpal tunnel syndrome. If you have arthritis in your wrist or hand, you are more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Arthritis has an impact on median nerve cross-section peripheries.

6. High-force (hammering)

High-force (hammering) motions can put persons at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. In working-age people, carpal tunnel syndrome is a prevalent condition. Strenuous occupational activities like forceful hand and wrist motions occasionally bring them on.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms typically appear gradually and might happen at any time. Notable symptoms are:

    • Tingling
    • Numbness
    • Pain in fingers and thumb
    • Pain in hands, wrists, and elbow
    • Difficulty in handling small things
    • Weakness in hands

Many patients discover that shaking or moving their hands makes them feel better. Optimal Health, Optimal Living  

Can We Prevent Carpal Tunnel Treatment?

To avoid carpal tunnel syndrome, modify your daily routine to reduce strain on your hands and wrists.

      • Reduce your use of repetitive hand motions.
      • Switch between different chores or activities to lessen the strain on your hands and wrists.
      • Maintain your wrists in a straight and steady position.
      • Unable to maintain something in a single location for an extended period.
      • Adjust your office setup so that your forearms parallel your work surface by changing your desk, chair, and keyboard.
      • Employ a brace to maintain your wrist in a straight position during your sleep.

A timely visit to the carpal tunnel chiropractor can start the healing process and possibly avoid unnecessary surgery. Chiropractic treatments include light cervical spine, elbow, and wrist manipulation.

Chiropractic Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome patients can benefit considerably from both chiropractic and physical treatment. Chiropractic manipulation of the wrist and elbow in carpal tunnel syndrome is to relieve pressure on the median nerve. On the other hand, physical therapy strengthens the muscles and ligaments surrounding the nerve, keeping it safe over time. At Aloha Sports Chiropractic, we take the time to get to know you and your condition personally. We recognize that every instance of carpal tunnel syndrome is as unique as the individual who suffers it. That is why  we give the most effective treatment plan:

      • Mobilization of Soft Tissue
      • Ideal for the rest of the hands and wrists
      • Stretching exercises
      • Use of cold packs to minimize swelling
      • Spine and Joint manipulation

Chiropractors for carpal tunnel syndrome can help relieve tension and strain. Nerve compression with hands-on methods is a good, non-invasive way to treat carpal tunnel syndrome and other discomforts. Realign Your Hands, Revitalize Life
