Carpal Tunnel

Chiropractor in Santa Rosa Treating Carpal Tunnel & Other Chronic Ailments

Chiropractic care is helpful for a myriad of painful chronic conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a very a common ailment, especially among people who work in an office environment and spend a lot of time on desktop or laptop computers. At Dr. Kyle Chiropractic Center, we are skilled at quickly and effectively diagnosing and treating this condition. We can alleviate your discomfort and set up a treatment plan that will help you to avoid further pain or injury.

What is Carpal Tunnel?

Basically, carpal tunnel is a condition that occurs when the nerve that runs along the palm of the hand at the thumb and up through the wrist becomes compressed. That nerve is called the median nerve, or the carpal tunnel. If left untreated, carpal tunnel gets worse over time and may affect the mobility of the wrist, so it’s important to address the issue as soon as it’s detected. Some of the indications that you might have carpal tunnel are a frequent burning, numbness or itching of the palm, especially near the thumb or middle and index fingers. There may also be a decrease in grip strength in the hand.

How Do You Get Carpal Tunnel?

Many people may be familiar with the term carpal tunnel because of its prevalence among office workers and computer users, but they may not realize that frequent computer keyboard usage is just one of the ways to get this condition. Repetitive movement of the wrist is one of the main causes of carpal tunnel, so regularly participating in certain sports like tennis may increase the risk of getting it. Other risk factors include pregnancy, heredity and health conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
