What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is what we call it when swelling in the wrist compresses the median nerve. Oftentimes, this results from an underlying medical condition, but it is one of the most common causes of pain in the limbs. 

In the past, there weren’t many options to address carpal tunnel pain, and those limited options were often expensive and invasive. However, today there are non-invasive ways to address this type of pain. As Flint chiropractors, we always seek a gentle approach as we address pain. 

Are You Experiencing Carpal Tunnel in Flint, TX?

Today, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is quite common. Unfortunately, not everyone realizes that they suffer from this condition. 

Typically, people feel swelling, burning, pain, or tingling in the palm that extends into the thumb and first three fingers. However, some patients feel a sensation of swelling in the hand without any visible swelling. In some cases, the hand becomes so weak that the patient has a hard time picking up small objects. 

Without proper treatment, this syndrome can lead to severe limitations in life. In some severe cases, the damage to the nerve can even result in a permanent loss of motion in that hand. If you believe you suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it is crucial to seek treatment from a specialist. 

At Hood Health & Wellness, our clinic is available to help you find a non-invasive treatment for carpal tunnel pain. 

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

As mentioned above, the root cause of carpal tunnel pain is pressure placed on the median nerve. This nerve runs from the forearm to the hand through the carpal tunnel passageway in the wrist. The nerve allows the palm side of the fingers and thumb to feel sensation, not impacting the little finger. 

Additionally, it provides a nerve signal for motion in the muscles at the base of the thumb. When something irritates or squeezes the median nerve in that space, we refer to it as carpal tunnel syndrome, and there are many causes behind it. 

For example, a fracture in the wrist might narrow the tunnel, irritating the nerve. Alternatively, swelling and inflammation can place pressure on the nerve. In many cases, there is no single cause of this pain. 

For some patients, there are several contributing factors that lead to this condition. 

Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Pain

If you suffer from pain in the wrists from carpal tunnel syndrome, chiropractic care is a means to find relief. While previous treatment methods required invasive surgery or expensive medications, our team works to assess your condition and offer relief from the pain. 

With a thorough examination, we take a comprehensive look at your body to find other factors that lead to this pain. As Flint chiropractors, we apply gentle, non-invasive adjustments to provide relief. 

Through some gentle manipulation of the spine, elbow, and wrist, we seek to ease your pain. However, we begin with an examination to help ensure we provide a personalized treatment plan. 

At Hood Health & Wellness, our team is ready to bring relief from your carpal tunnel pain. Contact our clinic today to schedule your examination and begin your journey to a pain-free life.
