Wrist Pain Denver
& Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If I had a nickel for every time I saved somebody from carpal tunnel surgery, I would have a ton of nickels.
To describe carpal tunnel syndrome, I need you to imagine a big long winding water hose that comes off the side of your house. The hose is turned on, and blasting out water. If you were to step on that water hose and the hose became compressed, there would be a decreased amount of water coming out of the end. This is similar to how decreased nerve flow from a compression or irritation can produce carpal tunnel symptoms. The common causes of Carpal Tunnel syndrome are irritation & compression along the nerve root. There are 10 sites of compression and entrapment along 2 different nerve roots from your neck to your wrist that can produce the same symptoms.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms (symptoms can be felt in one or both wrists)
- Numbness or pain in your hand, forearm, or wrist that awakens you at night. (Shaking or moving your fingers may ease this numbness and pain.)
- Occasional tingling, numbness, “pins-and-needles” sensation, or pain. The feeling is similar to your hand “falling asleep.”
- Numbness or pain that gets worse while you are using your hand or wrist, especially when gripping an object with your hand or bending (flexing) your wrist.
- Occasional aching pain in your forearm between your elbow and wrist.
- Stiffness in your fingers when you get up in the morning.
Many people are unaware that these symptoms are treatable with chiropractic treatment in denver. Many people call me as a last ditch effort to prevent surgery. Research has shown Chirorpactic treatment for wrist pain and acupuncture treatment to be extremely effective for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, prevention of painful steroid shots, and prevention of carpal tunnel surgery. Many Orthopedic Physicians who I have worked with in the past have been impressed with the results when combined co-treating with them. If you would like the cause of your carpal tunnel symptoms to be fixed, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
Carpal tunnel syndrome responds extremely well to A few chiropractic techniques that I use are chiropractic adjustments to the wrist, shoulder, elbow and spine, Graston soft tissue work for scar tissue, Acupuncture treatment with dry needling, Active Release Technique (ART), and stretching and strenghtening shortened and weakened muscles. I use a variety of gentle techniques because not every carpal tunnel syndrome is the same. There are different entrapment sites for the nerves with different compensations in the soft tissue.
