Chiropractic Care For Carpal
Tunnel Relief In Cape Coral
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a very common condition affecting more than 200,000 people in the US per year. It is thought to be caused by repetitive movements of the wrists, such as in golf, tennis, knitting, carpentry work, or even typing or texting. Over time, individuals who do repetitive movements can begin to develop symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The main symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are pain, tingling, and numbness in the hand towards the base of the palm. These symptoms are caused by the inflammation of the median nerve that runs from the wrist all the way up the entire arm. Weakness or pain in the wrist may be most noticeable when trying to perform daily duties such as writing, typing, or any motion using the hand and wrist. Although carpal tunnel syndrome isn’t a serious health problem, it can interfere with your daily life and activities due to the symptoms it causes. Dr. Omar Clark is an upper cervical chiropractor in Cape Coral, FL, who is well experienced in treating carpal tunnel syndrome. He may be the solution to easing your carpal tunnel symptoms once and for all.
How Can Chiropractic Help with Carpal Tunnel?
Cape Coral chiropractor Dr. Omar Clark can help alleviate your carpal tunnel syndrome naturally. Dr. Omar will carefully examine the spine for any misalignments. Misalignments in the spine can cause nerve interference that leads to inflammation in the body. This inflammation can affect the median nerve and bring about pain in the hand and wrist. Any misalignments will then be corrected through a gentle chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Omar can also gently adjust the wrist to help improve circulation and reduce inflammation. When the misalignments are corrected, the nervous system can communicate properly with the rest of the body, which can alleviate any carpal tunnel problems. Chiropractic care has also been shown to be an effective method for improving a variety of issues caused by our lifestyles and occupations. Some of the issues chiropractic care may help with are text neck, digestive troubles, high blood pressure, and many more! When you receive upper cervical chiropractic care with Dr. Omar Clark, your whole body benefits.
