Carpal Tunnel Care in Hot Springs

wrist painCarpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is caused by repetitive motion, such as typing, texting, or performing assembly line work. Over time, such actions may produce pain and injury. Most people with CTS experience tingling or numbness in the fingers or hand or weakness in the hand.

What many don’t realize is the cause of their wrist problem may be due to functional changes to one or more joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

Our Natural Approach

We will provide gentle chiropractic care to address the problematic wrist as well as look at your upper spine, shoulder, and elbow, if needed. We also have therapies which can help to address the problem.

It may be advisable to rest the affected arm, apply cold to decrease inflammation and perform specific exercises. You also can wear a splint or brace to immobilize the area but it’s good to get a professional opinion on this.

For some patients, results will be immediately noticeable. For others with more chronic issues, it may take several visits to see an improvement. We’ll always evaluate your progress and tweak care as needed to ensure you’re getting exactly what your body needs.

Body in Balance Chiropractic is proud to offer manipulation of any misaligned joints, laser, ultrasound and muscle stimulation, myofascial and stretching therapy, and recommendations for home treatment. Patients have even found success in our care who had surgery scheduled and were able to cancel after experiencing positive effects with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

A brace is often prescribed to help protect the wrist and keep it immobilized. While it may alleviate some symptoms, wearing a brace doesn’t address the malfunctioning joints that are causing the problem. Chiropractic care addresses the root cause.

How many visits will I need?

It’s important to know that not everyone is going to see a difference in one visit. Sometimes it will take a few more.

I’ve previously had surgery for my CTS; can chiropractic still benefit me?

If you have had surgery for CTS in the past, then chiropractic care for your carpal tunnel may not prove beneficial. That’s because once your body undergoes a surgery like carpal tunnel surgery, it’s not in the original design. That’s why we encourage those with CTS to seek chiropractic first before surgery.
