Carpal Tunnel

An Overview of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from Achieve Health and Wellness

It is important for everyone to make sure that they stay safe at work. While most people take this statement to mean avoiding accidents and falls down the stairs, this also means using proper work ergonomics. One of the most common problems that people have at work is the development of carpal tunnel syndrome. For those who might not know, this is the term used to describe irritation of the wrist that might lead to severe pain. For those who type at the computer for hours on end, they are at risk of developing this condition. The team from Achieve Health and Wellness in Bolingbrook, IL is here to explain how a chiropractor can use physical therapy to help people recover.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

For those who might not know, carpal tunnel syndrome is the term used to describe inflammation of the wrist. The carpal tunnel is an area of the wrist where nerves, such as the median nerve, traverse on their way to the hand. These nerves power the motor and sensory functions of the wrist and hand. When people use these muscles excessively, the carpal tunnel will start to swell. This can compress the nerves that are present in the wrist, leading to carpal tunnel syndrome. Some of the symptoms that people might develop include pain, numbness, and tingling. This can make it hard for them to work.

The Treatment of this Wrist Condition

When someone has been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, they might be told that they need to have surgery to correct this condition. While surgery is one option for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, it isn't necessarily required. A chiropractor knows how to use physical therapy to help relax the carpal tunnel. Over time, inflammation of the wrist can resolve with exercises and proper ergonomics. This can go a long way toward helping someone recover from carpal tunnel syndrome without having to have surgery.
