Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
These days millions of Americans have jobs which can have damaging long term effects on the hands and arms. We are also particularly concerned about the potential for widespread chronic repetitive stress conditions in our younger generation from endless texting and gaming starting at a very young age. Repetitive movements, especially combined with poor ergonomics, can cause ongoing micro-trauma to the hands and wrists. This trauma combined with joint dysfunction and spinal problems may result in a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. The median nerve, which travels from the tips of the fingers through the wrist up the arm and into the neck, connects eventually to the spinal cord. If one or more of the structures along the pathway are affected, symptoms of wrist pain, numbness, weakness, burning and loss of grip strength and other muscle dysfunction can occur. Chiropractic care can help assure that all of the joints and muscles along the path of the median and other associated nerves are free of obstruction and functioning normally, thus reducing the damaging effects of overuse syndrome.
