The carpal tunnel is in your wrist, and the nerves going through this structure can become irritated and cause issues like pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in your fingers, hands, and wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome is prevalent, affecting millions of people every year, especially domestic workers, secretaries, computer users, musicians, and others who do repetitive tasks with their hands. Your wrist problem could be the result of a misalignment of one or more joints in your neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
Chiropractic techniques that work well with the spine can be applied to other joints of the body, which is good because almost every joint is susceptible to malfunctions that can impair function and range of motion. Trauma, micro-traumas, vibrations, and repetitive motions are often culprits. Carpal tunnel is the usual diagnosis for any wrist pain, tingling/numbness, or weakness. Therefore, it is crucial to get a proper chiropractic evaluation to decide the best course of action.
