Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Most cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are of unknown causes, or idiopathic. CTS can be associated with any condition that causes pressure on the median nerve at the wrist. Some common conditions that can lead to CTS include obesity, oral contraceptives, hypothyroidism, arthritis, diabetes, and trauma. Some speculate that carpal tunnel syndrome is provoked by repetitive movement and manipulating activities and that the exposure can be cumulative. It has also been stated that symptoms are commonly exacerbated by forceful and repetitive use of the hand and wrists in industrial occupations, but it is unclear as to whether this refers to pain (which may not be due to carpal tunnel syndrome) or the more typical numbness symptoms.

Treatment
In some cases your chiropractor can use physical therapy or manipulation of the wrist to alleviate the symptoms of true CTS. In more serious cases a surgical referral may be required. If it is determined by your chiropractor that the cause of your symptoms is due to a neck-related situation, a series of chiropractic adjustments may be recommended. Whatever the cause, be assured that we will do our best to lead you in the most appropriate direction for the resolution of your health issue.
