Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often caused by excessive use of a computer or improper ergonomics while working on the computer. Repetitive movements (often typing) accompanied by poor posture, can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition stems from the narrowing of the passageway (tunnel) located in the wrist, which puts excessive pressure on the median nerve. Symptoms include pain, numbness, weakness, or a burning sensation.
At Restore Chiropractic, we treat carpal tunnel syndrome in a variety of ways. First we address any misalignments or hypomobilities in the wrist, elbow, shoulder, and cervical spine. We also utilize myofascial release and (IASTM) to address hypertonic muscles and other the soft tissue factors of carpal tunnel such as (ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves). We also offer cold laser therapy and infrared laser therapy in order to increase the bodies ATP and increase blood flow in order to speed the body’s natural healing process.
