Carpal tunnel syndrome, a painful inflammation of the hand and wrist, is commonly associated with work related injuries, but it can also occur from sports or any other activity that stresses this area. If you are one of the millions who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, you should know that we can treat it non-surgically here at the offices of Dr. Samantha Stuart DC, PC.
Our Portland chiropractor, Dr. Stuart, can diagnose your painful hand or wrist condition and prescribe natural treatments that can help you avoid surgery. First we will determine whether you really have carpal tunnel syndrome or another condition that mimics some of the symptoms, such as thoracic outlet syndrome (a pinched nerve near the thoracic vertebrae).
A combination of chiropractic adjustment, massage, physical therapy and other natural treatments can release nerve impingements, relieve pain and strengthen weakened hand muscles. Once your symptoms have resolved themselves, we can teach you how to improve your workplace ergonomics and posture, and prescribe ongoing wellness care to help you avoid future bouts of this disabling condition.
How long have you had carpal tunnel syndrome? When did it first become obvious?
