Pain from carpal tunnel can be intermittent, but when it hits, it really hits. You find yourself just not wanting to use your hands and arms for anything because it hurts too much. Relief becomes a major goal in your life so that you can do things again normally, and not with wrist braces or painkillers. You do have an option in the form of chiropractic treatment. Balanced Health Medical in Manhattan offers pain relief treatments for conditions such as carpal tunnel.
The idea behind using chiropractic treatment to treat a nerve problem is that the condition is being exacerbated by the tension and poor posture you can take on when you’re in pain. Carpal tunnel is an entrapment condition, in which a nerve essentially becomes trapped and squeezed by the bones in your wrist. It’s a real condition that can cause a lot of pain, but your own tension may be contributing to that pain, too.
So, when you see a chiropractor for this pain, he or she will approach the treatment from a few angles. Relaxing your arm muscles and fixing postural issues that could be radiating down your arm and creating more tension will be among those angles. The chiropractor may also try using some physical therapy exercises for your arm and hand because those may also have a beneficial effect.
