Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Chiropractic Care: Finding Relief Naturally

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that affects many individuals who engage in repetitive motions, such as typing, texting, or performing assembly line work. Over time, these activities can lead to pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the fingers or hand.

What many people don’t realize is that the cause of their wrist problem may stem from functional changes in one or more joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist. Biomechanical imbalances in these areas can irritate the nerves, leading to the symptoms associated with CTS.

At Casses Chiropractic Clinic, PC, we’re proud to help patients of all walks of life feel better and heal better when it comes to carpal tunnel pain.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

At our practice, we offer a natural approach to treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our experienced chiropractors will provide gentle care that addresses the problematic wrist and elbow, as well as the upper spine. By correcting any joint dysfunctions and biomechanical imbalances, we aim to relieve the underlying cause of your CTS symptoms.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may recommend rest for the affected arm, cold therapy to reduce inflammation, and specific exercises to strengthen the wrist and hand. Wearing a splint or brace can also be beneficial in immobilizing the area and providing support.

In conjunction with chiropractic, laser therapy is often a modality added to care that may improve your results, especially with patients who are visiting us post-carpal tunnel surgery and find they’re left with scar tissue or inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

While wearing a wrist brace may alleviate some symptoms, it is important to understand that it doesn’t address the malfunctioning joints that are causing the problem. Chiropractic care focuses on treating the root cause of CTS by restoring proper joint function and alignment.

I’ve previously had surgery for my CTS; can chiropractic still benefit me?

Absolutely! Chiropractic care can be beneficial even if you’ve had previous surgery for CTS. In fact, laser therapy can be particularly helpful in eliminating post-surgical complications, such as scar tissue. Our experienced chiropractors will assess your specific condition and tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs.

Are there any side effects associated with chiropractic treatment for CTS?

Chiropractic care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is generally safe and non-invasive. However, it is normal to experience mild soreness or discomfort after an adjustment or therapy session. These sensations are temporary and should subside within a short period. Our experienced chiropractors will ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process.

Do I need a referral from a medical doctor to receive chiropractic care for CTS?

No, you do not need a referral from a medical doctor to seek chiropractic care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our practice welcomes individuals seeking relief from CTS symptoms, and our chiropractors are trained to assess and treat this condition. However, if you have previously seen a medical doctor for your CTS, it can be helpful to share any relevant medical records or test results during your consultation.
