Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Harrisburg natural carpal tunnel treatmentBlake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees a lot of patients troubled with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Harrisburg chiropractic office. While some people think that the origin of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a syndrome that stems from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A recent study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy assessed 71 women between the ages of 35 and 59 who were diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. Upon investigating the subjects' neck range of motion, the doctors found that the patients had reduced cervical mobility when compared to a healthy control group.

In addition, it was also discovered that the degree of the women's reported carpal tunnel discomfort was related to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In short, the less mobility in the neck area, the higher the level of pain.

This research is extremely important, as you can't effectively resolve a condition until you fully understand its cause. By realizing that the root of carpal tunnel symptoms is in the neck, this means that all-natural approaches like chiropractic can often restore normal function, eliminating the need for risky operations.
