How Kinney Chiropractic Eliminates Carpal Tunnel | Chiropractor for Carpal Tunnel in Belmar, NJ
Hello, everyone! Today, I’m addressing how chiropractic eliminates carpal tunnel syndrome and our approach at Kinney!
Clearing Nerve Pathways
Carpal tunnel syndrome manifests as shooting pain down the arm, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hands, often stemming from issues in the neck. Even if neck pain isn’t present, misalignments or the first signs of what we call a double or triple crush syndrome could be occurring along the nerve’s course. To ensure a clear nerve pathway, we start by adjusting the neck. Nerves originating from the lower neck extend to the shoulder, arms, hands, and fingers. We want to eliminate any interference, subluxations, or pinching in the neck. A gentle adjustment helps achieve this. Moving on, we address the elbow, another potential site of nerve entrapment. A quick adjustment is performed. The carpal tunnel passes through the wrist, comprising nine wrist bones aside from the radius and ulna. Proper alignment and motion are crucial here, warranting a precise adjustment. Additionally, we adjust the shoulder to rule out any nerve interference. A combination of mobilization and adjustment ensures optimal shoulder function. Finally, we incorporate stretching to alleviate tight muscles and maintain a healthy neck curve, a key factor in carpal tunnel syndrome. This safe and effective approach aims to restore a healthy nerve supply to the arms, hands, and fingers.
If you’re experiencing symptoms like numbness, weakness, or pain in your hands or fingers, consider consulting a chiropractor for a comprehensive check-up. Dr. Jodi signing off—thanks for tuning in!
