Highly-Effective Carpal Tunnel Treatments by Leawood’s Top Chiropractor
The Bureau of Labor Statistics has found that 25 lost workdays occur annually for each case of carpal tunnel syndrome; a painful disorder of the hand, wrist, and forearm that also commonly involves numbness and tingling as well as motor weakness. Since 2009, our chiropractic clinic, has been providing those who suffer from the nagging pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, effective and lasting pain relief. Now, we have added massage therapy to our practice, which will offer a well-rounded treatment plan for anyone suffering from carpal tunnel.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is most commonly the result of:
- Overuse of the affected hand and wrist
- Repetitious occupational or recreational activities, particularly those that require repetition
- Awkward or sustained postures
- Unusual force or gripping
- Exposure to either vibration or temperature extremes
- Pregnancy, thyroid disorders, obesity and heredity factors must also be considered in the diagnosis.
Often misdiagnosed, it is very important for sufferers to undergo a comprehensive assessment in order to eliminate the possibilities of a variety of conditions that can mimic carpal tunnel syndrome, particularly prior to undergoing surgical intervention.
Fortunately, the great majority of carpal tunnel syndrome patients obtain an accurate diagnosis as well as significant relief through conservative, non-surgical management of the disorder. Your chiropractor offers treatment which often includes manual manipulation to the affected joints of the wrist, physical rehabilitation, nutritional counseling, information on ergonomics and related advice regarding workstation modification and lifestyle considerations. Your massage therapist offers relief from your carpal tunnel by breaking down the scar tissue and restoring the affected muscles to their natural abilities.
