Chiropractic and Acupuncture

Did you know that Chiropractic and Acupuncture is the best way to get long term drug free pain relief from Golfer’s elbow, Tennis elbow, and Carpal tunnel?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful disorder of the wrist and hand.  The carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel formed by the bones and other tissues of your wrist.  This tunnel protects your median nerve. The median nerve gives you feeling in your thumb, and index, middle and ring fingers.  But when other tissues in the carpal tunnel, such as ligaments and tendons, get swollen or inflamed, they press against the median nerve.  That pressure can make part of your hand hurt or feel numb.  Symptoms include dull pain, sharp pain, tingling, numbness, burning and weakness.

Early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid permanent damage to the meridian nerve.  A physical examination to hands, arms, neck, and shoulders can help determine if complaints are related to daily activities or to an underlying disorder, and can also rule out other painful conditions that mimic carpal tunnel syndrome.  Chiropractic care can involve therapies such as acupuncture that can often prevent and treat this disorder.
