Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Chiropractic Care

 

Do you have $30,000 to lose? According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) will lose this amount on average over a lifetime, due to medical costs and lost time at work.

If you live with CTS, you know that the tingling, burning, numbness, and loss of strength can have a profound effect on every aspect of your life. Chiropractic care can offer a drug-free, non-invasive way to treat your carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chiropractic care for CTS is drug free.
For many CTS sufferers, conventional treatment includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. Like many drugs, however, NSAIDs have side effects and can interfere with other medications. Medical doctors often administer cortisone injections to relieve pain and inflammation around the compressed nerve. These shots aren’t long lasting, so they require repeated injections—a scary prospect for the needle wary.

In contrast, a chiropractic professional will use his or her hands to adjust the joints and manipulate the surrounding tissue to take pressure off the nerve. A chiropractor also can treat nerve pressure that stems from misalignments in the back or neck. No drugs. No side effects.

Chiropractic care for CTS is non-invasive.
Typically, patients who don’t respond well to drug therapies are subjected to surgery. During the procedure, the doctor will relieve pressure on the nerve by cutting the ligament that runs through the carpal tunnel. Unfortunately, this surgery can be expensive—as much as $10,000 per hand. Even worse, it isn’t effective for everyone.

Chiropractors can deliver effective carpal tunnel treatment without making a single slice. In one study, sufferers who received nine weeks of chiropractic treatment reported significant improvements in function, comfort, and finger sensation. No scalpels. No downtime.
