Carpal tunnel syndrome is a collection of signs and symptoms that occur as a result of the median nerve being entrapped within the wrist. It typically presents itself with numbness and muscle weakness of the hand, which tend to increase over time. It is extremely common in office workers who spend hours a day typing on a computer. Laser treatments can help heal the compressed nerve and help you get to a pain-free work-day.
There are a diverse set of musculoskeletal conditions that can cause pain in the wrist and hand that a chiropractor is proficient in diagnosing and treating. Some of these include ulnar, radial, and median nerve entrapments, sprains, strains, osteoarthritis, and tendonitis, just to name a few.
