Carpal Tunnel in Casper?

chiropractic care helps patients with carpal tunnel syndrome

Just like nerves can become pinched and irritated in your back by the bones in your spine, the bones in your wrist can also compress the nerves running to your hand.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition that happens when the median nerve in your wrist is compressed by swelling, often due to an underlying medical condition. It is one of the most common conditions affecting the nerves. Traditionally there were few options to deal with this problem and those available, such as surgery and medication, were invasive and expensive. Fortunately, chiropractors in Casper have had success treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with a more conservative and gentle approach. If you are wondering whether your wrist pain is caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and want more details on the alternative treatments available from Casper chiropractors, then read on.


Carpal Tunnel Treatment in Casper

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is usually accompanied by sensations of burning, pain, tingling, or swelling in the palm of the hands and extends into the first three fingers and the thumb. Occasionally people also report a feeling of swelling in the hand even when no swelling is present. Patients commonly experience weakness in the affected hand and have difficulty with picking up small objects. This condition can have a major impact on a person's lifestyle and in some severe cases, if left untreated, the damage to the median nerve can cause permanent loss of movement in the hand.


What is the Cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Symptoms of compressing the median and ulnar nerve are sensations of burning pain, tingling, or swelling.

It is not uncommon for patients to say they have recently noticed weakness in the hand and also started to experience the fingers locking up in a flexed position.

It is important to take care of carpel tunnel before it becomes a lifelong condition.

The most common treatment is surgery, but Dr. Wisroth has had success with carpel tunnel syndrome through non-invasive adjustments to the bones of the wrist.

  • So many health care professionals only look at the site of pain when the problem is being caused elsewhere.
  • It has been shown that people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome typically have nerve irritation stemming from the spine.

We help many people that have carpel tunnel syndrome and would love to discuss your specific carpal tunnel issue and how chiropractic may help.


How is Carpal Tunnel Treated?

Traditionally, Carpal Tunnel treatment has been limited to decompression surgeries, physiotherapy, and prescription medicines. Due to the fact that these options often fail to deal with the underlying problem, they may only provide short-term relief and, at times, can prove completely ineffective. When left untreated, or when unsuccessfully treated, people are forced to adapt their lifestyles to accommodate this debilitating issue. This may include quitting one's job and needing help with basic everyday living.

Fortunately, many people in Casper are finding long-term relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome through chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic medicine is a non-invasive alternative that seeks out and deals with the underlying cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. A chiropractor will perform an evaluation of your condition and formulate an individualized treatment plan that will work to correct nerve interference in the spine and restore you to an optimal state of health.
