Carpal Tunnel TreatmentCarpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes a lot of pain and can make everyday activities nearly impossible. 

What causes it and is there a safe, effective carpal tunnel treatment that doesn’t require surgery? 

Yes! You can get relief from all-natural treatments from your Ottawa, Canada chiropractor. 

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Is It a Serious Condition? 

People with carpal tunnel syndrome often end up needing surgery because the pain is so debilitating. Simple activities, like carrying groceries or controlling a steering wheel, can become impossible. 

What causes numbness, pain, and weakness in your hands? 

Pressure on the median nerve is the culprit. The median nerve runs down the arm and goes through the carpal tunnel in the nerve and ends up in the hand. The nerve controls every finger, except for your pinky, and is responsible for movement and feeling in those fingers.

What causes the pressure that causes carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Repetitive motions, like typing
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy 

Carpal Tunnel Treatment from Your Ottawa, Canada Chiropractor 

If you’ve been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, your doctor might have told you that you’re going to need surgery

Thankfully, there is another option – carpal tunnel treatment from your chiropractor. 

What many people don’t realize is that the median nerve actually originates in the cervical spine (the neck). The pressure that leads to pain in your hands might be caused by misalignment within the neck. Spinal adjustments can relieve the pressure, thereby reducing the pain and weakness in your hands.
