The Non-Invasive Nature of chiropractic care to treat the pain of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
According to www.healthline.com, carpal tunnel syndrome can be defined as “the pain due to excess pressure in your wrist and on the median nerve. Inflammation can cause swelling. The most common cause of this inflammation is an underlying medical condition that causes swelling in the wrist, and sometimes obstructed blood flow.”
Surgery Carries Tremendous Risk
One of the most attractive reasons to treat repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome with a chiropractic program rather than surgery is because chiropractic care is non-invasive. Surgery, any surgery, carries enormous risks like the patient contracting an infection, doctor error in performing the operation, or the most common, the operation could simply fail to cure the problem and relieve the wrist pain. At the very least, Chiropractic care should be given a chance to work. Another good reason to put off invasive surgery is that there are serious risks to your health just from the anesthesia that is required for the surgery. It is a fact that in 75% of surgical cases, pain from carpal tunnel returns, at the previous or greater level within years of the surgery. This is because the surgery only temporarily relieves the pressure on the menial nerve and in fact often makes the irritation and pain worse.
There is a good possibility that there is a blockage in another part of your body such as your spine, lower back or neck that is causing a decrease in overall blood flow. The ill effects of repetitive motions are thus exacerbated causing carpal tunnel and median nerve irritation and swelling. Chiropractic treatment can help re-align the spine and neck, increasing joint flexibility and quite possible aid in increasing the blood flow to the irritated median nerve, helping the nerve to “heal itself” holistically and naturally.
