The Known Tunnel Of Carpal Tunnel
Carpal tunnel we think is going to occur in most everyone who has some sort of desk job where typing is happening at an accelerated rate. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be very debilitating and leads most to have some sort of surgery. The surgery that is performed usually consists of some sort of “cutting” that releases pressure from a nerve!? This has to be an amazing concept here. Chiropractic accesses nerve dysfunction and then removes pressure (stress) from the nerve by performing specific adjustments. What seems to be the difference between carpal tunnel surgery and seeing a chiropractor. Well that’s a HUGE list! Let’s see what our surgery is going to do. You will have some ligament removed/cut to “remove” pressure off of the median nerve. Then scar tissue will develop and this process will more than likely have to be repeated. If your aim is to remove the symptoms than this is your proper choice.
Chiropractic and carpal tunnel seeks to go after the cause of your dysfunction. “A study published in the British Medical Journal the Lancet found evidence of cervical neuritis (nerve irritation) in over 70% of all carpal tunnel syndrome patients.” It is very safe to say that you have to look to the spine first when addressing carpal tunnel and any diagnosis for that matter. Restoring proper communication to the wrist begins with addressing the spine. Having a surgery to the wrist is one thing, kind of like putting a bandage on things. Having specific chiropractic adjustments to the cervical region and wrist is the optimal road to choose in order to allow your body to heal. Allow your nerve system to be connected from top down will enable your signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel to diminish by addressing the causative factors. Have your nerves checked.
