Prevalence of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Research reveals repetitive movement and carpal tunnel syndrome correlate. So many people suffer from it because they occupy jobs requiring rapid, repetitive hand movements that eventually deteriorate a nerve running through the hand and wrist. Since it is unlikely professional duties will make the necessary adaptations to combat this, it is important we take it upon ourselves to deter carpal tunnel from affecting our lives. BodyFixers mobile chiropractors will teach you exercises that will enable you to take the necessary steps towards beating it!
Explaining Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is pressure on the median nerve, a nerve stretching through the arm, travels through the carpal tunnel, a passage in the wrist, to the hand. Aside from the pinky, the median nerve controls the feeling and movement in all of your fingers and thumb, which is why people lose feeling and become weak in their hands. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from it:
- Trouble holding things due to weakness in hand.
- Feelings similar to shock movements in your fingers.
- Tingling sensation moving up your arm.
- Burning in your palm and thumb.
- Itching numbness in fingers.
If you can relate to any of these, it is time to schedule an appointment with BodyFixers!
How Can a Chiropractor Help You?
It is reassuring to know studies have shown chiropractic treatment effectively treats carpal tunnel syndrome, based on patients showing various improvements in things like range of motion and sensation in their fingers. Adjusting the spine, a pillar in chiropractic care, and elbow is how mobile chiropractors initially treat carpal tunnel, but their fight against it does not end there. They will teach you exercises to enable you to regularly treat your discomfort:
- Wrist extension stretch.
- Wrist flexion stretch.
- Medial nerve glides.
After being trained on how to properly practice these exercises, carpal tunnel syndrome will be no match for you!
Consequences of Avoiding Treatment
Chronic pain is not the only downside of neglecting treatment. People who fail to address it may have permanent weakness and lack of coordination in their fingers and thumbs. As time progresses, minuscule tasks such as tying your shoes or opening a water bottle will become laborious.
