Carpal Tunnel Is Treatable

Repetitive stress injuries can occur in almost anyone, and a common one for people who do a lot of typing or other repetitive motions with their arms and hands is carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be a frustrating chronic condition that leads to wrist pain and other problems. Various treatments exist, and treatment plans have to be customized. If you've had forearm and wrist pain and need to find out what's going on, a visit to a chiropractor may be in order. Boca Health & Wellness Center in Boca Raton is the place to be for better carpal tunnel treatment.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Your wrist has a number of nerves traveling through it between your arm and hand, and this point where all the nerves pass through is called the carpal tunnel. If the carpal tunnel becomes constricted, such as through inflammation, the nerves traveling through it can become irritated and create a painful sensation. You can experience wrist pain, numbness in your hand, and diffuse pain through the forearm. You can experience tingling sensations in your arm and hand, especially in your thumb, index, and middle fingers (and occasionally the ring finger). Your arm and hand as a whole might seem weaker and unable to grip items properly.

What's so frustrating about the condition is that you have to move your arm and hand, so you can't really give it a good break to let the inflammation go away. Plus, the movements that you have to do are the same ones that caused the condition, so you basically keep re-causing the condition daily. You can develop carpal tunnel for reasons other than repetitive movement, but repetitive movement, such as typing, office work, and so on, are among the top causes.

Diagnosis involves checking certain points on your arm and seeing how you react. Treatments vary from rest and pain medication to acupuncture. Braces or splints are very common as they prevent your hand from moving and re-irritating everything. Re-evaluating your work and home life also helps; good work ergonomics are essential for preventing and treating the condition. But simple work ergonomics aren't enough to soothe the pain and remove the numbness.

Acupuncture, corticosteroids, and possibly surgery are all potential treatments. A chiropractor may be able to help, too, in a couple of ways: one, if there is an acupuncturist at the office to help, and two, through adjusting spinal posture and arm positioning.
