Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Many do not know that carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated by chiropractic. Numbness, weakness and tingling of the hand are symptoms most often felt in carpal tunnel syndrome. This is due to the pressure on the median nerve, which is located alongside other tendons in a space called the carpal tunnel. Pressure on the median nerve can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. This pressure can come from swelling of the area where the median nerve is located. Swelling can be a result of many different conditions including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or hypothyroidism. Also, moving the hand and wrist in a certain way can lead to inflammation around the carpal tunnel area.
The main fingers involved in the numbness, tingling and weakness sensations are the thumb, index and middle fingers. Pain in those three fingers are indicative of carpal tunnel pain.
