Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Matthews
The carpal tunnel is a small tube-like area through which your median nerve passes. This tunnel-like area is inflexible and may begin to close if the bones of your wrist shift or if your tendons swell. As a result, the nerve is compromised and you experience wrist pain. This is typically your first symptom and it may come and go if your condition is new. However, carpal tunnel syndrome gets progressively worse without treatment, so please speak with our Matthews chiropractor if you are feeling wrist pain. Other symptoms to watch for include:
- Hand pain
- Hand weakness or numbness
- Finger numbness, tingling or pain
- Pain in your forearm
- Increase dropping of objects from poor hand function
- Limited hand and wrist mobility
Chiropractic Care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Matthews NC
Matthews Family Chiropractic uses a natural approach for carpal tunnel treatment. Dr. John or Dr. Mechelle evaluate your symptoms and provide an immediate reduction in your pain through a gentle wrist adjustment. This aligns the bones properly to alleviate pressure on the median nerve. As you continue with your chiropractic care, your wrist learns to remain in this healthier position with less pressure on the nerve. We also evaluate your lifestyle to determine whether you can make small changes in the way you arrange your workstation, exercise program or sleep habits. Our chiropractors provide tips to improve your daily chores so that wrist pain is reduced. The objective is to keep your wrist in a healthy alignment. Our wellness team teaches you exercises to strengthen wrist muscles and improve your flexibility which will also reduce your discomfort.
