Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition where the nerve that supplies energy and information to the muscles of the hand is restricted or irritated, causing pain, numbness, and weakness of the hand. Most often the thumb and first few fingers are involved, and overall grip strength is usually affected.
Some doctors recommend a brace or even surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. Surgery should always be the last option. Braces can sometimes be helpful, but they are not going to fix the problem.
If you or someone you know suffer from the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, come in for a carpal tunnel evaluation. Many times, hand and wrist pain and numbness are not even caused by nerve compression at the carpal tunnel ! We'll get to the cause of the problem and treat you with natural methods such as laser therapy, chiropractic adjustments, auriculotherapy, and soft-tissue therapy.
Don't let the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome keep you out of work or from doing the things you love to do. Call us today at 847-223-8343.
