One of the occupational health problems we face today is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), a condition by which the constant pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist leads to injury. Pressure on this nerave from everyday activities like typing, chopping, hammering, or pushing can show up wrist pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness or loss of grip strength, and loss of sleep due to discomfort.
External pressure and misalignment in either the back or neck can also cause CTS. It can be remedied by chiropractic manipulation of the neck and spine that will help to correct the nerve connection between the spine and wrist thus helping the healing process of CTS. Along with manipulations are remedies such as physical therapy, soft tissue treatments stretching, and strengthening exercises can alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms associated with CTS.
