Chiropractic Helps Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Dr. Rebekah Nunn sees a lot of patients troubled with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Tulsa, OK 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 Shows Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Recent research printed 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 women had reduced cervical mobility when compared to a healthy control group.

In addition, they also found that the degree of the women's reported carpal tunnel pain was related to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In other words, the less flexibility in the neck, the greater the level of pain.

This research is extremely important, as you cannot effectively address a problem until you fully understand its cause. By understanding that the root of carpal tunnel issues is in the neck, this means that all-natural approaches such as chiropractic can often restore normal function, eliminating the need for risky surgery.
