Carpal Tunnel Syndrome FAQs

If you are suffering from aching wrists and limited hand movement, you may have carpal tunnel syndrome. At Robin Wellness Center in Robbinsdale, we provide carpal tunnel treatment and chiropractic services. Our team has gathered a few of the questions that we run into regarding carpal tunnel syndrome.

.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

A carpal tunnel is a small passageway of bones and ligaments that runs through your wrist. The syndrome occurs when the passage becomes irritated or injured. As a result, the bones are shifted out of alignment, and the ligaments swell from the pressure placed on the median nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a lot of discomfort and pain.

How Do I Know If I Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

We will ask you a series of questions to understand your symptoms. Understanding what provokes the symptoms can help lead to a diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Any type of activity that creates pressure on the median nerve is likely caused by carpal tunnel syndrome.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Several factors cause carpal tunnel syndrome, including:

  • Repetitive movements involving the hands and wrists like typing, golfing or playing tennis
  • Pre-existing health conditions like diabetes and arthritis
  • Any injury to the wrist, such as dislocations and fractures
  • Cysts or tumors in the carpal tunnel
  • Pregnancy

What are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

There are several uncomfortable symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome that increase in intensity. As the condition progresses, you may feel discomfort throughout the day. Other symptoms include:

  • Achy wrist
  • Stinging pain in the wrist
  • Swollen and inflamed hands and wrists
  • Numbing and tingling sensations
  • Limited range of motion

How Does a Chiropractor Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Chiropractic care is a great option for carpal tunnel syndrome relief. Your treatment will likely include the following:

  • Wrist manipulation to reduce inflammation
  • Exercises to strengthen and stretch the muscles around your wrist
  • Icing your hands and wrists to keep inflammation under control
  • Wearing a splint to take pressure away from the median nerve
