Carpal Tunnel Chiropractor In Grand Rapids MI

Our skilled chiropractors at The Chiropractic Doctors supplies patients with treatments for carpal tunnel. This particular condition causes pain and weakness in the arms and may affect your work capabilities as well as your daily life. Medications may cover up the discomfort, but chiropractic treatments in Grand Rapids MI can actually get to the root of the problem without harmful side effects.

DEFINITION OF CARPAL TUNNEL

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the median nerve in the wrist. This particular nerve extends from the space in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel to your forearm. The nerve is responsible for the feeling and movement in all your fingers except your little finger. Carpal develops when the nerve becomes compressed.

IDENTIFYING SYMPTOMS OF CARPAL TUNNEL IN GRAND RAPIDS MI

Carpal tunnel may cause numbness, weakness, tingling or pain in the hands or fingers, which may extend to their elbow. If you experience any discomfort in your little finger, another nerve is causing your discomfort. The symptoms may start only at night when you first develop the condition. As the condition progresses, symptoms will occur all day long and may interfere with your sleep and daily life. When carpal tunnel initially develops, you might be able to shake your hand to alleviate the symptoms; however, as it worsens, the symptoms will become constant.

CAUSES OF CARPAL TUNNEL

Various issues will cause pressure on the median nerve such as swelling or conditions that reduce the size of the carpal tunnel. It's possible for the lining to thicken and irritate the tendons around the carpal tunnel. Diseases and conditions that lead to carpal tunnel include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism and pregnancy. If you work on a computer or have a similar job or hobby that puts repeated stress on the median nerve, you might develop the condition. This is especially the case if you repeatedly bend your wrist downward.

DIAGNOSING CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

If we suspect you may have carpal tunnel or have wrist pain or numbness, we will start by gathering information about your medical history and conducting a physical examination of your arms, hands and neck. We'll evaluate the strength of your wrist and take into consideration your career, daily activities and other aliments. Additionally, we may need to conduct imaging to get a look inside your wrist to determine issues such as nerve damage.

HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP

A chiropractic adjustment is useful for more than just back problems. It has the potential to correct misalignments in the spine that contribute to the severity of your nerve symptoms. Basically, the treatment is designed to restore the body to its original state. Wrist supports help to keep the wrist aligned in its proper position, ultimately taking pressure off of the nerves. We might conduct therapy to help improve movement in the wrists. We'll also advise you on changes you can make to reduce the stress you put on your wrists.
