Carpal Tunnel and Chiropractic care in Clarksville, TN

Some common treatments for carpal tunnel include chiropractic care of the wrist, arm, an upper spine: Misalignment in the spine does contribute to symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
 New research with carpal tunnel syndrome has revealed that the pain it causes in the wrist and arm is likely just symptomatic of problems elsewhere in the body.
 In fact, results show that wrist and arm pain is directly related to misalignment of bones, ligaments, and muscles in the neck. Carpal tunnel syndrome is probably the most common source of wrist pain. Symptoms may include soreness, numbness or tingling, or a burning sensation. Some people who develop carpel tunnel find it difficult and painful to rotate their wrist, or move their hand up or down or from side to side.

Carpal tunnel is more common among people who make the same wrist movements over and over (as in sewing, painting, and writing), using a computer, and playing racquetball or handball. Diabetes, arthritis, pregnancy, and obesity also have been linked with carpal tunnel.
