Carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway located in the wrist. This “tunnel” allows for the median nerve, which extends from the spine to the hand, to pass through. Any swelling of the carpal tunnel can cause compression on the median nerve, resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome and potentially cutting off or limiting feeling and movement to portions of the hand.

Carpal tunnel syndrome experience symptoms like:
- pain in parts of the hands and wrists
- even an inability to grasp properly
Chiropractic care is a great way to take care of carpal tunnel syndrome because it originates in your neck (lower cervical spine). A misalignment in the lower neck will cause carpal tunnel syndrome because the nerves are irritated causing the symptoms like tingling, numbness, burning and pain in parts of the hands and wrists or even an inability to grasp properly. With chiropractic care and correcting the misalignments in your neck can relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel and chiropractors look at how the should, elbow, and wrist is functioning because it is a chain link, if one is off then it will cause a cascade of problems down your arm and into your wrist/hand. Chiropractic care will help the nerves to function correctly, which will relieve the carpal tunnel syndrome you are dealing with.
