Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chiropractic Methods Considered Effective for Treating Carpal Tunnel Patients

Spinal Health Chiropractic Center sees a lot of people troubled with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Largo chiropractic office. While some people think that the source of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a problem that stems from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A recent study printed in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy assessed 71 women between the ages of 35 and 59 who were diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. Upon studying the subjects' neck range of motion, the doctors found that the patients had less cervical mobility when compared to a healthy control group.

In addition, they also found that the level of the women's reported carpal tunnel problem was related to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In other words, the less mobility in the neck area, the higher the level of discomfort.

This study is extremely important, as you cannot effectively resolve a condition until you fully understand its cause. By realizing that the root of carpal tunnel symptoms is in the neck, this means that all-natural approaches such as chiropractic adjustments can often restore normal function, reducing the need for risky surgery.
