Our staff at Jex Chiropractic can diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is Carpal Tunnel?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is what is considered a repetitive strain injury. It involves the warping, shortening, and damage of the carpal tendons in the hand and wrist. As this tendon shortens and becomes damaged, it can cause the hand to draw up, it can cause terrible pain, and it can make daily work nearly impossible. This injury is most often associated with jobs that require typing, use of a computer mouse, or repetitive work with the hands. This can affect anyone and can be very painful and difficult to treat. Many elect to have surgery to help lengthen this muscle back out and to relieve pain. The problem with this is that if you continue to do the motion that causes the carpal tunnel in the first place, it is likely to come back time and time again.
Carpal tunnel can affect anyone but is most often going to affect those that do repetitive work with their hands and therefore do tend to keep their hands in the same position for a long period of time or that complete the same hand movement or motion over and over for a long period of time.
