Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Working an office job is already stressful, and it can be even more stressful when you're suffering from constant wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. In addition to being painful, being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome can negatively impact your ability to complete tasks and your overall quality of life. At Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, Dr. Kristina Hollsteina and Dr. Gregory Serge can naturally relieve your wrist pain, helping you get back to writing or typing with ease. Through the combination of chiropractic techniques and lifestyle advice, our chiropractors can treat carpal tunnel syndrome and prevent it from reoccurring.
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that primarily affects people with jobs that require them to spend long hours working at a computer. Carpal tunnel syndrome results from the compression of the median nerve that runs along your forearm. When that nerve is compressed due to inflammation from surrounding tissues, it can lead to various symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, including:
- Wrist pain
- Weakness in the wrists
- Tingling sensations
- Hand numbness
- Hand pain at night
- Pins and needles feeling
Do I Need Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome can prevent you from being able to complete your work, causing you to feel pain when doing other activities such as driving and making it difficult to carry even light items such as groceries. If you notice your carpal tunnel syndrome is impacting your life, it's essential to contact our chiropractic team right away. Our chiropractic care is natural, non-invasive, and prevents patients from relying on pain medications that only mask the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome rather than treating the underlying condition. Common treatment options we offer for carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Chiropractic adjustments to your wrist
- Muscle exercises to stretch the tissues around your wrist
- Wrist flexion and extension exercises
- Lifestyle advice, such as work ergonomics tips to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome from coming back
By keeping up with work ergonomics and continuing chiropractic treatment, you can reduce inflammation in your wrist and promote your body's natural healing process. It can take a couple of weeks to feel the full effects of chiropractic treatment.
