Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. Pressure on this nerve can be caused by an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing, chopping, hammering, pushing or prolonged use of a computer. Symptoms of CTS range from wrist pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness or loss of grip strength, and loss of sleep due to discomfort.
Chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, laser therapy and deep friction massage are extremely effective solutions to the pain of a carpal tunnel syndrome. These treatments, along with stretching and strengthening exercises, can in most cases effectively alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms associated with CTS.
