Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when tissues on the wrist compress the median nerve in the hand. The syndrome results in pain, numbness, and a tingling sensation in the arm or hand. Pain is usually more intense closer to the thumb. The syndrome may cause a pins and needles sensation in the hands and fingers, as well as making the hands weak. This weakness may interfere with an individual’s ability to pick up items or perform fine movements.
If this nerve issue goes untreated, it can cause permanent damage to the median nerve.
Fortunately, a chiropractor can diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome. Individuals in the North Charleston, SC area are welcome to seek treatment from Dr. Tharnish and her team at the Charleston Pain Relief Center.
If you’re suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, chiropractic care can provide non-invasive, non-surgical relief. Treatment begins with a thorough evaluation so you can receive care that fits your unique needs.
From there, Dr. Tharnish may provide gentle manipulations of the hand, wrist, and elbow. Treatment may include massage therapy, wrist stretching exercises, and temperature therapy to reduce the inflammation of the median nerve.
Chiropractic care can help speed up the recovery process so you can return to your regular activities. Give the Charleston Pain Relief Center a call and one of our staff members can help you schedule an appointment for quick relief.
