Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition where pressure exists on the nerve of the wrist. This nerve supplies the movement and feeling to the hand. Carpal tunnel can lead to numbness, pain, weakness, tingling, or muscular damage in the fingers or hand.
The cause of this condition is thought to be repetitive motion of the hand or wrist, keyboard typing, or playing an instrument, but studies have not been conclusive. Carpal tunnel syndrome is most often seen in patients between year 30 to 60 and more often in women. Stop the suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome with relief from our chiropractor or physical therapists.
Factors which can lead to symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Fluid retention due to pregnancy or menopause
- Bone fractures
- Alcohol abuse
