Carpal tunnel is a condition that affects millions of people across the country, including right here in the San Antonio area. At Dr. Phillips’ Chiropractic Nutrition & Wellness, we can help with a wide range of issues, from back pain treatment to identifying herniated discs, and providing effective treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel affects the hands and wrists, often causing pain, numbness, and a tingling sensation in the body. Several factors increase your risk of developing the condition. First is your work environment. Do you spend a lot of time typing on a keyboard or using a mouse? Repetitive motions like these can strain the wrists. Additionally, back pain can lead to poor posture, affecting ergonomics. It's a common issue that we have experience helping with. If you're unsure about the source of the pain, we are always ready to conduct further evaluation.
Chiropractic Care Can Help With Carpal Tunnel
Did you know chiropractors are trained to work with smaller areas of the body, like your hands? They can alleviate pressure on the nerves extending into your arms and hands. If you've had herniated disc treatment before with a chiropractor, it can also help with carpal tunnel syndrome by focusing on relieving pressure and inflammation in the affected area.
Chiropractic adjustments can realign the spine and improve overall nerve function, reducing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Our chiropractor may also use other techniques, such as massage therapy or acupuncture, to further alleviate the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
The risks of carpal tunnel are quite severe. Most people don't realize how much they use their hands daily, and not having the ability to use them can be quite frustrating. If you're experiencing any of the symptoms above, don't hesitate to make an appointment for an evaluation today. It's important to schedule an evaluation right away as you notice symptoms; waiting longer increases the chances of further complications.
