What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
In most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, or CTS, the affected areas are the hands, wrist, fingers, elbow and arms. However, this doesn’t mean that the problem is actually here. Instead, carpal tunnel syndrome can manifest itself as a result of compressed nerves in the neck. When these nerves aren’t able to function properly, symptoms like numbness, pain and tingling in the arms and fingers can occur.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can often occur as a result of working on a computer or doing repetitive movements with your hands at your job—if that sounds familiar we encourage you to visit us to get checked!
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
At Pittsburgh Chiropractic Associates, we can perform specific and gentle chiropractic adjustments where the nerves are compressed to help alleviate the problem instead of just focusing on where it hurts. We’ve seen many patients undergo failed carpal tunnel surgery because the surgery targets the symptoms and not the root cause of the issue.
Dr. Prinkey will also provide you with recommendations for sitting and working at a desk or computer to help you build the best ergonomic environment. With chiropractic care, CTS is something that can be reversed.
