Chiropractic and Carpal Tunnel

Keep in mind that chiropractors do not claim to treat conditions. We merely seek to remove stress and obstruction to your nervous system function, which is often the root cause of symptoms and dysfunctions. This is why people with a wide array of health problems see restored health and improved function with chiropractic care, because the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the human body.

Carpal Tunnel is a painful condition of the wrist which has multiples causes. Dr. Lacey will take her time in determining which of the following is causing your symptoms.

Misalignment of a bone in the wrist, causing undue stress on the flexor retinaculum and interfering with the median nerve.
A separation of the distal radius and ulna (forearm bones).
A subluxation and nerve flow disruption in the neck or upper back. Because this region of the spine controls the nerve supply to your hands, a problem in this region can lead to symptoms such as carpal tunnel.

Chiropractors are highly trained in the examination and correction of extremity problems, such as wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees and ankles. Minor misalignments can lead to major problems and even joint replacements down the road. How many joint replacements could have been avoided had the joint been adjusted at the first sign of trouble?
