Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) results in numbness, tingling, weakness, and other problems in your hand due to pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. This nerve, along with several tendons, runs from your neck through your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. This nerve is responsible for movement and sensations in your thumb and first three fingers but not your little finger. Pressure on the median nerve causes CTS. This pressure can come from swelling or anything that makes the carpal tunnel smaller. For instance, certain diseases may contribute to the swelling such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, or diabetes. Repetitive movements, especially in flexion, may create swelling. Another possible cause of CTS is pregnancy due to increased fluid in the extremities, hormonal influences, and postural considerations. Nashville carpal tunnel treatment is usually based on decompressing the affected nerves to provide relief.

Nashville carpal tunnel treatment may initially include a number of non-surgical remedies such as chiropractic adjustments of the cervical spine, decompression along the cervical spine and at the wrist, stretching exercises of the wrist, hand, and fingers, and wearing a brace to immobilize the joint. Patients with pain in their neck, arms and hands, back, or legs can benefit from the Cox Flexion Distraction technique for safe and efficient pain relief. With this treatment, Dr. Henry aligns your spine, which relieves any pain you may be experiencing. Slow, precise, repetitive movements allow the discs in the lower back to expand. These motions are effective because they allow the discs a period of relief from constant pressure, which reduces inflammation and consequently restores optimal nerve function. Call for an adjustment today to relief your hand pain.
