Thayer Chiropractic Method for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Costa Mesa
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is an injury affecting the median nerve located in your forearm down to your hand. Over time your carpal tunnel or the eight bones in your wrist can get compressed and injured when you make a repetitive motion with the hands, like when you type or work in a manufacturing or electronic assembly line.
Mild symptoms include tingling, itching, burning, and numbness that worsen to reduced grip strength, paralysis of the fingers, wasting away of the muscles below the thumbs, and inability to feel hot and cold objects.
Costs for carpal tunnel release surgery in the United States exceed $2 billion annually and make CTS the most expensive upper-extremity musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). However, other treatment alternatives are available, including chiropractic care, which has become an effective go-to option for millions of individuals.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Early diagnosis through physical examination and X-ray helps in the effective management of CTS through chiropractic care, which offer these benefits:
Chiropractic care is an alternative to pain medication
Medical treatment has downsides, such as heavy dependence on pain medication, allergies, or other contraindications. A CTS patient may not want to take pain relievers.
In this case, chiropractic care is the best option to alleviate pain. An experienced chiropractor will review the CTS case and recommend options such as spine and elbow adjustments or bracing to limit hand movements. Chiropractic treatment allows the wrist and tendons to recover and heal naturally.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option
Unfortunately, CTS cases can go undiagnosed for a long time, and at its advanced stages can become too painful and may require surgery. However, regular visits to your chiropractor can prevent this last resort.
Chiropractic care shows encouraging results in controlling and healing CTS symptoms.
Chiropractic Care Works on CTS
Several studies prove the effects of chiropractic treatment on CTS, where patients showed improvements in pain reduction, range of motion, and finger sensation.
