Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief for the Delaware Area

office worker wrist painIf you experience numbness, tingling, or pain in your hand and wrist, you may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This common condition occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed in the narrow carpal tunnel of the wrist.

Common Causes and Risk Factors of Your Pain

CTS is often caused by repetitive hand motions like typing, using a computer mouse, or operating machinery. It may also result from injuries that misalign the wrist bones and impinge the median nerve. Other risk factors include

  • Being overweight, which increases pressure in the carpal tunnel
  • Pregnancy hormones and swelling
  • Medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes

Identifying the Symptoms

Beyond numbness and tingling in the thumb, index, and middle fingers, CTS may cause wrist pain and weakness, pain radiating up the arm, and grip weakness or dropping objects.

Symptoms tend to worsen at night; numbness and muscle weakness/atrophy may become permanent if left untreated.

How Our Natural Approach Can Help

Our chiropractors are skilled at relieving carpal tunnel through precise adjustments and therapies, including

  • Wrist adjustments to restore proper bone alignment and open the carpal tunnel
  • Stretching and exercises to reduce nerve compression
  • Soft tissue massage to relax tight muscles and tendons
  • Custom wrist splints or supports to stabilize the wrist at night
Our comprehensive approach combines in-office treatments with at-home care for lasting relief and prevention of further nerve damage. We may also guide you on workstation ergonomics, task modifications, and other lifestyle changes.
