Carpal Tunnel
Written by Rich Van Til, D.C.

What Is It?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the compression of the nerves located in the wrists. Those nerves also travel through your elbow, shoulders and neck before they reach your brain. The nerve(s) become compressed/restricted in one or several areas which causes irritation that ultimately results in inflammation and pain.

Compression/Restriction ⇒

Irritation⇒

Inflammation⇒

PAIN.

As you can see, the resulting pain is merely a symptom of the real issue.

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic strives not only to relieve the symptom (pain), but also to remove the real issues (compression/restriction). Chiropractic is a nonsurgical and noninvasive effective treatment for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Chiropractic gets the joints and tendons moving more freely. The more free a joint moves the less friction on the nerves and tissues which results in less inflammation and pain!     

Why Come To Us?

You will receive a thorough evaluation where the entire nerve pathway is evaluated to make sure that there are not multiple restrictions on the nerve. Also, an evaluation is necessary to make sure that the function of the wrist will be improved. We are confident that chiropractic can help everyone, however, we will be honest with you concerning your prognosis.
