Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pain Relief from Our Chiropractor
Carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition characterized by pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the wrist and hand, is the most common work-related injury in the U.S. It happens when inflammation or a mechanical misalignment in the wrist, arm or spine pinches the median nerve controlling movement and sensation in your wrist and hand. Frequent, repetitive, un-ergonomic hand and wrist movement is a primary cause, so it is often considered a repetitive stress injury. It can also be a complication of arthritis, diabetes and hormonal changes. If you live in Scottsdale or Phoenix and need wrist pain relief, our Camelback Medical Centers chiropractor can help you recover with conservative, non-surgical treatment.
Comprehensive, Natural Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
At Camelback Medical Centers, we will diagnose the underlying cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome so you get the most appropriate combination of treatments. In most cases, a personalized plan of chiropractic care, massage therapy, physiotherapy and conservative medical care can resolve the root causes of carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery, and with lasting results. For example:
- Chiropractic care—Because carpal tunnel syndrome is a classic case of nerve impingement, our chiropractor is especially qualified to diagnose and treat the reason behind the discomfort, which is frequently a mechanical issue. With gentle, precise spinal adjustments and work on the affected wrist, a pinched median nerve can be released. This often resolves the pain, numbness and tingling quickly and effectively.
- Massage Therapy—In cases where inflammation, tendonitis and other types of soft-tissue injury are involved, massage can effectively and naturally reduce cellular inflammation and scar tissue to provide relief to the median nerve. Massage also releases endorphins into your system to relieve pain naturally.
- Physiotherapy—Our chiropractor works directly with our physiotherapists to develop an individualized plan of stretching and exercising to build strength and flexibility in your hands, wrists, arms and any other areas that need work. We can also coach you on more ergonomic movements during work or exercise; this can help you avoid future wrist pain through better movement.
- Conservative Medical Treatment—To assist with rapid pain relief and inflammation reduction while we work on resolving the root causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, we can also offer non-steroidal injections.
