Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Depew natural carpal tunnel treatmentDr. Palmer sees a lot of people troubled with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Depew chiropractic practice. While some people think that the origin of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a condition that arises from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Recent research 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 investigating the subjects' neck range of motion, the researchers discovered that the women had reduced cervical flexibility when compared to a healthy control group.

In addition, they also discovered that the level of the women's reported carpal tunnel discomfort was related to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In short, the less range of motion in the neck area, the higher the level of pain.

This research is very important, as you cannot effectively treat a condition until you fully understand its source. By realizing that the root of carpal tunnel symptoms is in the neck, this means that all-natural approaches such as chiropractic can often restore normal function, eliminating the need for risky surgery.
