Chiropractic Care Very Helpful in Helping Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS is the cause of numbness or pain in the wrist and fingers. The median nerve compresses down the carpal tunnel, which is the main cause of carpal tunnel symdrome. When this happens, it infringes in the nerve and makes this pain in the finger/wrist area. Our Springfield Chiropractic of NJ is here to help with your carpal tunnel symdrome.
Research conducted by the Journal of Musculoskeletal Science & Practice studied how manual manipulation affected 18 patients. The carpal tunnel symdrome effects were tested before the treatment was given, and then after. The treatment given was similar to what would be a chiropractic manipulation of the wrist. The manipulation opens up the carpel tunnel and increases the space from the pressure of the infringed nerve, providing pain relief and a decreases amount of numbness.
While doing the manual manipulation of the wrist, the carpal tunnel increased in size, leaving less compression on the nerve.
Springfield Chiropractic care uses a menthol very similar to this manipulation, which provides the patient with simple comfort and relief. We can use various other techniques, like cold laser therapy with the correct protocols. This treatment is very safe and FDA approves, not to mention it is non invasive. Nerve flossing is another treatment option which uses special techniques to mobilize the nerve in the hand.
