Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is classified as a Repetitive Motion Injury – a parent category of conditions that happens to be the fastest-growing set of reported injuries the United States today. “Carpal Tunnel” refers to areas of the wrist where nerves and tendons extend from the forearm down to the hand. The bones of the wrist form a tunnel for these nerves and tendons, and when the nerves in the wrist area get irritated it can cause a lot of pain and discomfort.

This condition is frequently associated with computer use and exacerbated by poor work station arrangement, non-ergonomic office furniture, and medical treatments that mask the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome instead of helping to correct or prevent them.

Many people do not realize that “trapped” nerves in the upper spine, chest muscles, and rotator cuff muscles are also involved in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and that a simple combined-treatment plan that incorporates restorative active release technique muscle treatment AND corrective chiropractic adjustments can be very effective.
