Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Causes

carpal.bmpCarpal Tunnel Syndrome has a variety of causes. Typically, repetitive or sustained activities initiate the syndrome, creating imbalances (Pathomechanics) in the muscles in the forearm. It is these imbalances that gradually cause a distortion or crowding of the carpal tunnel. This leads to entrapment of the nerve and ultimately nerve damage.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome vary do to the severity of the condition and may include:

  1. Stiffness
  2. Burning
  3. Swelling
  4. Tingling
  5. Numbness
  6. Loss of hand strength
  7. Disrupted sleep due to pain.
  8. Radiating pain up into the forearm.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

In most cases, once carpal tunnel syndrome treatment is initiated, the patient will begin to notice a change within two weeks. Within thirty to ninety days, depending on how well the patient responds, the carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms will either be completely asymptomatic or will have reduced to the point that they will be able to return to normal daily activities. The earlier the treatment begins the better.

I have been very successful in treating people in the Greater Cincinnati area that have had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Treatment usually involves Chiropractic adjustments, home exercises and nutritional support. In the majority of instances, upon completion of the carpal tunnel syndrome treatment, patients are amazed how much better they feel. Putting off treatment can ultimately lead to nerve damage and necessitate the need for surgery. Call Today513-791-8110.
