Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is an excruciating condition affecting wrists and hands. While it’s rarely a life-threatening health concern, it can cause mild to severe impairment, especially among individuals who attend to repetitive tasks like working in an assembly line or typing for long hours. Studies explain that CTS usually develops because of median nerve compression, a health issue commonly assessed and managed by a chiropractor for carpal tunnel syndrome

Now, you may be wondering how an Upper Cervical Chiropractic physician can fix something far away from the area of focus – the topmost neck bones. The answer lies in the brachial plexus (nerve bundle that branches out into the arms and hands) and its proximity to the cervical spine.

When the atlas shifts even by the tiniest fraction, it can tug on the surrounding muscles and the nerve tissues like the brachial plexus. This leads to pain that radiates to the different nerve tissues that branch out from the brachial plexus, including the median nerve. 

You can potentially address your concerns with the help of an Upper Cervical chiropractor for carpal tunnel syndrome. Gentle neck bone adjustments can remove tension buildup in the muscles and joints in your cervical spine. This helps decompress affected structures along your topmost neck bones, like your brachial plexus and median nerves. Hence, if you have a cervical subluxation, consider scheduling an appointment with an Upper Cervical doctor. This will help you confirm if you need to receive adjustments and gauge how far your atlas has shifted away from its normal position. 

DON’T DELAY ANY LONGER.
