Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Corvallis natural carpal tunnel treatmentDr. Lach sees a lot of people struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Corvallis chiropractic office. While some people think that the origin of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a condition that stems from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

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

Furthermore, it was also found that the degree of the women's reported carpal tunnel discomfort was connected to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In other words, the less mobility in the neck area, the greater the level of pain.

This research is very important, as you cannot successfully resolve a condition until you fully understand its source. By realizing that the root of carpal tunnel symptoms is in the neck, this means that natural approaches like chiropractic can often restore normal function, eliminating the need for risky surgical procedures.
