Wrist Pain, Carpal Tunnel, and Chiropractic in Snellville GA
A long nerve, called the median nerve, runs from your arm through your wrist and into your hand. This nerve controls everyday movements in your hands, wrists, and forearms. The carpal tunnel refers to an area in the wrist that the median nerve runs through, and if it becomes inflamed or injured, it can lead to an issue known as carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive motions like typing or assembly line work can cause the area around the carpal tunnel to swell and end up pinching or compressing the median nerve inside. This can cause painful and uncomfortable symptoms like tingling, weakness, and numbness in your hand and wrist. Visit your Snellville GA chiropractor for a natural solution to managing and relieving carpal tunnel symptoms.
How Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Affects You
One of the most common frustrations of people who deal with carpal tunnel syndrome is how your hand might feel like it’s “falling asleep.” When a nerve like the median nerve becomes aggravated or pinched, you may start to notice a tingling sensation, and your fingers might even go numb. Carpal tunnel can also cause hand and wrist pain that can make everyday motions and activities uncomfortable. Certain health conditions like arthritis pain can also make carpal tunnel symptoms worse. It helps to partner with a chiropractor who will address the source of your carpal tunnel symptoms so you can experience lasting pain relief.
Managing Carpal Tunnel with Chiropractic in Snellville GA
When you get chiropractic care for carpal tunnel, your chiropractor will work to resolve what is compressing or aggravating the median nerve and carpal tunnel in your wrist. Chiropractic care can help reduce swelling and inflammation and promote better functioning in joints like the wrist. A misalignment in the wrist joint may be a contributing factor to your carpal tunnel syndrome. Instead of taking medications with nasty side effects or dealing with invasive surgeries, talk to your Snellville chiropractor about how to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel naturally.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Chiropractic care addresses the root cause of your carpal tunnel with all-natural solutions. Your chiropractor will work to resolve misalignments that can disrupt the healthy functioning of the nerve. Misalignments can also disrupt the healthy flow of oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the area. Adjustments help restore healthy functioning and allow your brain to effectively communicate with nerves like the median nerve. Chiropractic care will also help decrease your symptoms by reducing nerve interference and looking at how your body functions as a whole. Chiropractors offer a holistic approach to correcting misalignments in your spine and joints so you can experience improved functioning everywhere.
