Natural Carpal Tunnel Treatment with Chiropractic

Nashville natural carpal tunnel treatmentSweeney Chiropractic sees a lot of people struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Nashville chiropractic office. While some people think that the source of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a syndrome that arises from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Recent research 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 studying the subjects' neck range of motion, the researchers discovered that the patients had reduced cervical flexibility when compared to a healthy control group.

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

This study is extremely important, as you can't successfully address a condition until you fully understand its cause. 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 operations.
