Why Choose All-Natural Carpal Tunnel Treatment?

Written By Skaggs Chiropractic on August 12, 2019

Pain free lifestyleYou’ve probably heard a lot about text neck these days, but the good-old carpal tunnel hasn’t gone away.

Studies suggest that nearly 15% of the general population suffers from symptoms of carpal tunnel.

Not only is carpal tunnel annoying in mild forms, but it can also be excruciating when severe and interfere with your ability to work.

Chiropractic offers a comprehensive carpal tunnel treatment option without drugs or painful surgery. Here’s how.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Pain and What are the Symptoms?

Carpal tunnel happens when the nerve that runs from your wrist down into your hand becomes inflamed, pinched, or subject to significant pressure.

Any type of repetitive action can lead to carpal tunnel. You’ve probably mostly heard about the dangers of keyboards, but playing piano and vibrations from power tools can also cause carpal tunnel.

Pregnancy, diabetes, thyroid conditions, and autoimmune illnesses can all increase your risk of developing carpal tunnel.

Many people may not realize they’re suffering from carpal tunnel if the symptoms aren’t severe. Look out for

  • Pins and needles, numbness, or pain in your thumb or the first three fingers of your hand

  • Shooting pain that travels from your hand up through your arm (or vice versa)

  • Weakness in your hand

  • Pain in your hand or wrist that gets worse at night
