If your job involves repetitive hand and wrist motions and you are experiencing pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands and wrist, you might be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.
The major nerve controlling most of your fingers is called the median nerve. This nerve travels from the tip of your fingers, to the bones in your wrist, past your elbow, up the arm, through the shoulder and neck area, then end up at your spinal cord. That is quiet a long way, and painful problems can develop in one or more of these areas.
The carpal “tunnel” is formed by bones in the wrist. The median never we talked about in the last paragraph, along with tendons and blood vessels, pass through this opening. If any of these bones that make up the tunnel collapse, inflammation, nerve pressure, and pain can result.
A chiropractor can perform specific adjustments to help normalize structure and reduce the irritation. It is not going to get fixed overnight, but if you stick with the program it can produce excellent results, and all without the use of strong drugs and surgery.
