Carpal tunnel and hand numbness

Repetitive movements of the hand and wrist, prolonged posture of the latter, frequent use of vibrating tools, these are many situations that can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Why? Because they put too much pressure on the tendons and the median nerve, thus modifying the space of this extensible tunnel found at the base of the wrist.

Symptoms and diagnosis of carpal tunnel and hand numbness

Among the symptoms, we can name:

  • loss of sensation, numbness and tingling in the fingers;
  • difficulty holding objects;
  • wrist and palm pain.

Many people suffer from this syndrome, which can be diagnosed with a physical examination of the hand. Although carpal tunnel syndrome is benign, if it is not treated quickly, it can degenerate into chronic loss of sensitivity, or even partial paralysis of the muscles of the hand. But, do not panic, there are several treatments and means of prevention to alleviate the carpal tunnel syndrome.

Preventing carpal tunnel

To avoid suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, there are some easy tips to apply in your daily life. For example, you can make sure your work desk is ergonomic or you can take a few breaks to perform stretching exercises when doing a repetitive task.

Treatments to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome

At Clinique Chiropratique Vision Santé, our approach aims to stimulate the nervous system by clearing the space inside the carpal tunnel. By properly adjusting the biomechanics of the bones of your wrists and the adjacent joints, the median nerve compressions will be less significant. In short, it is by muscular and ligament work that our chiropractor will alleviate the symptoms of carpal tunnel.

If you want to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel, schedule an appointment today with one of our professional chiropractors.
