Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is most often caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. Pressure on the median nerve may occur due to injury (for example a sudden bending back of the wrist), or sustained pressure from activies like typing, keypunching, chopping, hammering or pushing.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is becoming one of the most widespread of occupational hazards. It can be painful and debilitating. Early treatment can lead to a quicker and easier recovery. Chiropractic manipulation is proven to be one of the most effective methods of treatment .Regardless of the treatment, full recovery will only come about by avoiding stressful situations and changing work habits. Your physician can advise best, and it is wise to seek a doctor's advice as soon as possible. Remember, consult your chiropractor prior to surgery.
