Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Wrist pain leads people to visit our chiropractors at the MDR Advanced Medical Associates clinic. You might be surprised to learn that compressed nerves in the wrist result in carpal tunnel syndrome. It is just like how subluxations (misalignments) in the spine create pain and discomfort in your arms and legs.

Causes and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bone and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the result of the pressure on the median nerve. When the median nerve is compressed, symptoms occur. The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can include:

  • Tingling and numbness in the fingers or hand
  • Burning and swelling sensations in the fingers or hand
  • Electric shock sensations in fingers
  • Weakness in the hand
  • Difficulty picking up items
  • Dropping items from the hand

The cause of carpal tunnel syndrome varies and is not always evident. Causes can include:

  • An injury or trauma to the wrist
  • Certain occupations have been shown to contribute to the development of the condition. Those that involve the long-term use of vibrating instruments and repetitive hand motions may contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Metabolic disorders involving the pituitary and thyroid gland

The affected hand is often your dominant hand, however carpal tunnel syndrome can occur in either. In fact, both hands being affected is not uncommon. In addition, those who present with carpal tunnel in both hands typically have nerve irritation stemming from the spine.

Because of the anatomy of women where the carpal tunnel in the hand is narrower, women are three times more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Unfortunately, many healthcare practitioners will focus on the site of the pain when the source is elsewhere. This is one of the reasons that carpal tunnel surgeries are only effective about 40% of the time.

It is advised that patients pursue non-invasive and more affordable treatment first. Without the correction of nerve interference, the symptoms will likely reappear. MDR Advanced Medical Associates has had success in treating carpel tunnel syndrome through non-invasive adjustments to the bones of the wrist. In addition, cold laser therapy has brought relief as well.

After evaluating your condition, our staff creates an individual chiropractic treatment plan that best suits you. If you want more information or have questions, our Boynton Beach chiropractors are happy to supply the answers you need to make an informed decision about carpal tunnel syndrome treatment.

Dr. Abe was quick in assisting me with my neck and shoulder pain! I had very little movement of my head going into the office but Dr. Abe assured me that I would be taken care of. He not only adjusted me but taught me ways to alleviate my pain through at-home stretching and better sleeping positions. Three days later and my pain is gone! Thank you Dr. Abe and thank you MDR!! I will be back!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Abe. This was the first time I felt absolute comfort at a chiropractor and will 100% be back. I felt comfortable and felt that Dr. Abe was treating me like a member of his family. I really appreciate Dr. Abe and MDR Advanced Medical Associates. Dr. Abe thoroughly explained to me my options and helped me set follow up appointments the fit into my daily packed schedule. Thank you !

I've been coming here for over a year now and the service is exceptional, Dr Abe has been a huge help in my recovery and also always have a great conversation with him. If you're not coming here you're going to the wrong place.

I decided to visit this group after a pinched nerve/muscle spasms in my neck/arm were not getting better. Great location, good hours, if you are in pain, they do anything they can to try & see you and not make you wait a week.Dr Mark & Dr Abe went thru my x-rays and came up with a game plan & discussed with me.I mainly see Abe for manipulations, he is very skilled at what he does. I'm glad I took the chiropractic route. Had me up & running pretty fast. Amazing that I felt that good without medicines.Jessica & Deasy are fun to deal with. Nice, friendly, & they keep things moving! It all starts and ends at the front desk.Chris. What can I say. I guess it isn't really isn't his fault that he gets to inflict pain on me from time to time, but, he is also great to work with 🤣🤣. He gets to demonstrate the "at home" things to do, never the fun part but when done regularly, they may help you from coming back as much.Worth checking out. They are all good people.❤
