Our Flower Mound Chiropractor Explains Carpal Tunnel Pain

Chiropractic Flower Mound TX Carpal Tunnel

If your fingers, hand or lower arm give you continuous discomfort, you may suffer from a collection of symptoms known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This common manifestation of repetitive motion injury can make computing, driving or even holding a pencil an ordeal. Fortunately, today your Flower Mound chiropractors have treatments that can relieve this kind of chronic impairment and restore your hand to full functionality.

What is the "tunnel"?

The "tunnel" in question runs from your forearm between the bones of the wrist and into your hand. This channel houses the median nerve, an important conductor of the neural signals that regulate the movements of your thumb, index finger, middle finger, and ring finger. If something puts undue pressure on your median nerve, you may feel pain, tingling, or numbness in those digits. The nerve pressure may result from a bone spur, an acute injury, arthritis, or pregnancy-related edema. The number one problem with carpal tunnel is the narrowing of the tunnel. The most common cause of narrowing is the misalignment of the carpal bones. This is why manipulation of the carpal bones is beneficial in treatment.

A great many cases of this syndrome also occur due to improper posture or conditions on the job. People who type at a keyboard positioned too low for them, for instance, may spend countless hours typing at an improper hand angle, making them vulnerable to chronic wrist and hand pain. Constant use of a computer mouse can cause the same problem. Sufferers may experience temporary relief by "shaking the pain out," but the discomfort will always return unless the affected hand has a genuine chance to heal.
