Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. It occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand - the median nerve - is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist. It is usually caused by repetitive strain or poor positioning.
Icing/ Heat Instructions
Ice 20-30 minutes 2-3 times per day
The treatment we use for this condition is most often in the form of chiropractic adjustments, medical massage/ trigger point therapy, and deep tissue laser therapy. This condition generally takes 4-6 weeks to resolve when proper treatment and self-care are followed. The doctor may treat you from 1-4x per week according to the severity and history of the condition.
