Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome CureIt is considered that the chiropractic techniques which work so effectively on the spine can be applied to other joints of our body. Almost every joint is liable to complex issues and malfunctions that impair mobility and range of motion. Trauma, micro-traumas, vibrations and repetitive motions are often the reasons behind such issues. Our chiropractors in Surrey can help you today!

The Tunnel

The carpal tunnel is a group of ligaments and small bones in your wrist. Painful symptoms can occur when nerves are compressed by a collapse of this nerve “tunnel.”

The Spine

Many find it surprising to discover that the cause of their wrist problem may be due to functional changes to one or more joints of the neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. Vertebral Subluxation Complexes in the upper spine may damage and cause pain to the structure between it and the tip of your littlest finger. This is often called the double crush syndrome.

Other Extremities
Shoulders, hip problems, knees, ankles and even jaw problems have been shown to respond to chiropractic care. Always keep surgery as a last resort, and explore all other avenues before considering surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can bone spurs be repaired via chiropractic?When your joints don’t function properly for a long period of time, the result is bone spurs and other arthritic changes. Even though there is no research, it is hoped that restoration of proper joint function at least slows down this degenerative process.
  • Is knuckle cracking harmful? There are certain studies which reveal that cracking one’s knuckles brings no damage to metacarpal joints. However, loose knuckle joints can be overextended, which adds movement to those or other joints. This should be best left to an expert chiropractor.
  • Does wearing a wrist brace help? The basic function of a brace is to limit mobility and help shield the wrist. This will naturally lessen certain symptoms, but it doesn’t resolve the malfunctioning joints behind the problem. Chiropractic care strengthens supporting muscles and soft tissues, consequently restoring proper motion to the joints. During this procedure, some form of continuous supportive care may be required, but many patients don’t need bracing to resume their daily activities.
