Chiropractic & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Did you know that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects 4-10 million Americans and is considered the most common nerve disorder experienced today? This is why we have made it our condition of the month for June.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that causes pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms in the arm and hand. It is occurs when the median nerve - one of the major nerves in the hand - becomes compressed in the carpal tunnel (a narrow passageway on the palm side of your wrist.)

There are a number of factors that may play a role in the development of CTS. The anatomy of the individual's wrist, sex (CTS is more common in women), obesity, other nerve or inflammatory conditions, injuries, and, of course, workplace factors.

If you or someone you know suffers from CTS, give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
