Carpal Tunnel Treatment in Orange County
- Common causes for carpal tunnel are usually due to repetitive motion to the hand and wrist. In addition to these repetitive motions, there can be other spinal and shoulder joint dysfunctions.
- Neck problems can also cause pain, numbness, tingling, weakness or a loss of strength in the hands.
The median nerve is the major nerve that controls the thumb and index finger. This nerve is the main nerve trapped or pinched in the wrist. The carpal “tunnel” is formed by bones in the wrist. The median nerve, tendons and blood vessels all pass through this tunnel. If one of the many bones that make up this tunnel collapses, inflammation and nerve pressure can create severe pain. After a thorough examination, specific chiropractic adjustments will help correct the bone structure in the wrist and reduce nerve inflammation.
