Carpal Tunnel

If you're experiencing pain in your wrist and forearm contact Marion Chiropractic Center and Dr. Roger Kritzer.

Carpal tunnel occurs more in women.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (or CTS) happens three times often in women than men.

One of the most expensive work related injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS. While men can suffer from it, women are three times more likely than men to be affected. It often impacts people that use their fingers and wrists often such as cleaners, meatpackers, seamstresses, etc. It's caused by an issue when the median nerve that runs along your forearm to your hand is compressed from overuse. It can result in a numbing or burning sensation in the hand, which makes fingers feel useless. It often radiates up the forearm along the nerve. If you've been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome you may be surprised to learn that chiropractic care might help.

Carpal tunnel treatment

Quite often the best remedy is resting your hand and wrist. This might involve immobilizing the wrist with a brace or splint. Patients can also reduce swelling with cold packs. While pain relievers can control some inflammation, some studies point to vitamin B6 as being a worthwhile supplement to relieve symptoms. Furthermore, a chiropractor can help with joint manipulation and offer exercises to help strengthen and stretch needed areas. Chiropractors can also offer tips for posture and movement that can help stop CTS from returning. If you find yourself dealing with carpal tunnel, contact me.
