Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Pain?

Were you aware that just as nerves can become pinched in your back due to spinal bone misalignment, the bones in your wrist may also compress nearby nerves, leading to the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome? While surgical intervention is often sought for relief, our chiropractor at Zen Chiropractic in Eden Prairie has achieved success in treating carpal tunnel syndrome through non-invasive adjustments to the wrist bones.

With surgical procedures carrying hefty price tags ranging from $6,000 to $11,000 and achieving full symptom resolution in less than 60% of cases, many individuals are opting for a more conservative approach to treatment. In light of this, our doctors at Zen Chiropractic have crafted this brief article to offer general insights into carpal tunnel syndrome and the alternative treatment options available.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Pain?

Numerous individuals seek assistance at our clinic, expressing concerns about wrist discomfort and seeking clarification on what exactly carpal tunnel syndrome entails. Typically, as the median nerve becomes compressed due to swelling and misalignments of the wrist bones, patients often experience sensations of burning, pain, tingling, or swelling extending from the first to the third digit and the thumb. It’s not uncommon for patients to notice recent weakness throughout the affected hand or find picking up small objects more challenging than usual. Some individuals may even perceive a sensation of hand swelling as the median nerve compression intensifies, even in the absence of visible swelling.

In addition to inquiries about the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, patients often inquire about its origins. While the exact cause may not always be clear, some patients recall a wrist injury preceding the onset of symptoms. Certain occupations, particularly those involving prolonged use of vibrating tools and repetitive hand and wrist movements, have been linked to its development. Furthermore, metabolic disorders involving the pituitary and thyroid glands can also contribute to its occurrence.
