Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Natural Solutions for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Human beings are capable of tremendous manual dexterity, and they take full advantage of it. From sports to office work, we depend on our hands to accomplish countless daily tasks. It's possible to have too much of a good thing, however, and when chronic overuse or poor work ergonomics cause nerve impingement in the wrist, the result is a debilitating problem called carpal tunnel syndrome. If you're experiencing this issue, you'll be relieved to know that you can obtain relief without undergoing surgery, thanks to the all-natural methods we use at Skocik Chiropractic in Harrisburg, PA.

Natural Solutions for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A Common Cause of Wrist Pain and Neurological Problems

The median nerve is an important nerve that runs through the wrist to the first three fingers and thumb of the hand. It's encased by a narrow channel in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel's diameter is defined not only by the positions and sizes of the wrist bones, but also by the ligaments and other tissues surrounding the median nerve. It's a fairly tight fit under the best of circumstances, and in some individuals, the carpal tunnels are congenitally narrow. In this environment, it doesn't take much for the median nerve to become pinched. When impingement occurs, you may experience wrist pain as well as pain, tingling, weakness, or loss of sensation in your hand.

Chronic overuse of the wrist is a common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. Athletes such as golfers and tennis players who constantly grip a club or racket are prone to it, as are artists, musicians, and manual workers of all kinds. Repetitive motion allows tissue strain and damage to accumulate until the tissues swell up, pinching the median nerve. Awkward work ergonomics such as a too-low keyboard or desk can force your wrists into strenuous positions, inviting carpal tunnel syndrome.

Extremity Adjustments, Ergonomic Recommendations, and More

You can probably avoid the need for carpal tunnel surgery by consulting our Harrisburg chiropractor for non-invasive treatment. We can examine your wrist to see whether your carpal tunnel was abnormally narrow to begin with. Chiropractic adjustments to the wrist bones may give your median nerve more freedom, easing the impingement. Massage therapy and THOR laser therapy can bring tissue swelling down and ease wrist pain. We can even make recommendations for improving your office ergonomics, reducing the odds of a recurrence.
