There has been a significant increase in the amount of people experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome in recent years.
Carpal tunnel can include pain, and or numbness, loss of sensation or weakness in the hands. The increased usage of smart phones replacing desk top computers at home has played a big role in this resurgence of carpal tunnel syndrome. It is important to remember that every single nerve in your body goes through your spine before going anywhere else, so our doctors will evaluate to see if the problem relating to the hands is coming from the hands themselves, versus something impacting the nerves that begin in the neck and travel all the way down to the hands and fingers. We can treat the hands, elbows, shoulders, and even the collar bone if it is causing some of the problem you are having. Our staff is skilled in evaluation and treatment of the syndrome, and can help alleviate the symptoms as well as giving you tips on how to improve your posture and regain the strength you could have lost while the syndrome progressed.
