Ripple chiropractic is like no other I have experienced. The care is 10/10, the investigative work done to understand my issues was thorough. They educated me to understand how I got to this point and how we were going to correct it. I couldn't be happier at Ripple.

What are the Common
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms?

Symptoms of carpal tunnel often start gradually and worsens over time. Common symptoms include:

  • Tingling or numbness in the fingers, especially the thumb, index, and middle fingers.
  • Pain that radiates from the wrist up the arm.
  • Weakness in the hand, leading to difficulty in gripping objects.
  • A sensation of swelling in the fingers, even if no visible swelling is present.
  • Discomfort or pain in the wrist, especially at night.
  • Pain in the ring fingers and wrist pain are also notable symptoms.

Identifying these symptoms early can significantly improve the effectiveness of carpal tunnel syndrome treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome is primarily caused by pressure on the median nerve.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Understanding the causes of carpal tunnel syndrome is essential in finding the right carpal tunnel pain relief.

Developing carpal tunnel syndrome is primarily caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs from your forearm through the carpal tunnel in your wrist. Factors contributing to this pressure include:

  • Repetitive hand movements, especially those that involve prolonged flexing of the wrist.
  • Wrist injuries, such as fractures or sprains.
  • Conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or thyroid gland imbalances.
  • Pregnancy, which can cause fluid retention and increase pressure on the carpal tunnel.
  • Heredity, as some individuals may have a smaller carpal tunnel, making them more susceptible to the syndrome.
  • Inflammation of the transverse carpal ligament can also lead to increased pressure on the median nerve.

Diagnosing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

To diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome, medical professionals may conduct several tests, including:

  • Physical examination to check for signs of nerve compression.
  • Nerve conduction study to evaluate the function of the median nerve.
  • Electromyography to assess the electrical activity of muscles.

Once these tests are completed, carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed based on the results and the patient’s reported symptoms. Early and accurate diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is crucial for effective treatment and management.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Carpal Tunnel?

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach to manage carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chiropractors focus on the musculoskeletal system and employ various techniques to relieve pressure on the median nerve and potentially relieve pain. Key chiropractic treatments for carpal tunnel include:

  • Adjustments: Realigning the bones in the wrist and hand to reduce pressure on the median nerve.
  • Soft Tissue Therapy: Massaging and stretching the muscles and ligaments in the wrist and forearm to relieve tension.
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Using sound waves to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Lifestyle Advice: Providing ergonomic advice and exercises to prevent the recurrence of symptoms.

While chiropractic care can significantly alleviate symptoms and improve function, the outcome depends on the severity of the condition and the patient’s adherence to the treatment plan. In many cases, regular chiropractic adjustments combined with ergonomic changes and exercises can lead to substantial improvement. However, severe cases might require additional interventions such as carpal tunnel surgery.

The number of sessions varies based on the individual’s condition and response to treatment. Most patients begin to see improvement within a few sessions, but a comprehensive treatment plan will be discussed during your initial assessment. It’s essential to follow the chiropractor’s recommendations and attend all scheduled appointments for the best results.

Our chiropractors are trained professionals who use gentle techniques to ensure your safety and comfort.

Yes, most patients can continue their regular activities during treatment. However, the chiropractor may provide specific advice on modifying certain activities to avoid aggravating your condition. Following these recommendations, such as taking frequent breaks and using a wrist splint, can help ensure a smoother recovery and prevent further irritation of the carpal tunnel.

During your first visit, the chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination, discuss your symptoms and medical history, and develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs. This may include a combination of adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and lifestyle advice.
