Noninvasive Chiropractic Care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Table of Contents

Do you have a burning or tingling sensation in the palm of your hand? Do you have trouble moving your fingers or do you often experience having a weakened grip? Do you have wrist pain or discomfort in the hand that frustrates you? You may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome can affect your wrist and thus your ability to perform daily tasks. It can be difficult to think about not being able to perform everyday tasks, such as folding laundry, cleaning the kitchen, typing, or fixing things around the house because our hands and wrists don’t function as they should. But regular chiropractic care from a New Orleans chiropractor can change all of this to ease the symptoms and pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel?

The common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is often repetition or overuse. Repetitive movements such as typing, playing the piano, or using power tools can cause inflammation and swelling that leads to carpal tunnel syndrome. It affects women three times more than men and usually begins in the more dominant hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the median nerve that runs from your hand, through your wrist, and all the way up the forearm. Inflammation of the median nerve causes nerve interference that leads to chronic carpal tunnel pain. This median nerve can also become compressed in the carpal tunnel, a tunnel in the wrist, that can cause pain, weakness, or numbness commonly associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. Thankfully, you don’t have to live with this pain. Chiropractic care from New Orleans chiropractor Dr. Jeff Vitenas can alleviate nerve inflammation to ease carpal tunnel pain so you can experience relief.

Alleviate Carpal Tunnel Pain with Chiropractic Care

Many people turn to medications or even invasive procedures such as surgery to try to ease carpal tunnel pain. But medication is only a short-term solution that wears off over time, and surgery can be a painful procedure with a long recovery period. Dr. Jeff Vitenas of Enlightened Chiropractic uses noninvasive, neurologically-based chiropractic care to address symptoms of carpal tunnel to bring about long-term relief. Regular chiropractic adjustments will alleviate nerve interference and restore proper spinal alignment so the central nervous system can function as it should. This can reduce inflammation and ease compressed nerves, even in the wrists. Specific adjustments of the wrist can also alleviate pressure on the median nerve to reduce carpal tunnel symptoms. With chiropractic care from New Orleans chiropractor Dr. Jeff Vitenas, you can achieve your goal of relief without the use of medications or invasive surgeries.

Success Stories of Carpal Tunnel Relief

Countless case studies have shown the success of natural and safe chiropractic care for easing carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. For instance, one case study focused on a 60-year-old man who experienced carpal tunnel pain. After hand and wrist adjustments, he experienced complete relief. Additionally, a 42-year-old woman also resolved her carpal tunnel syndrome pain, numbness, and tingling in her arms through regular chiropractic care. Because of such success stories, chiropractic care is worth looking into before turning to surgery or other invasive procedure.
