Tingling and numbness in the hands, fingers and wrists and pain so intense that it awakens you at night with the possibility of similar symptoms in the upper arm, elbow, shoulder or neck are some of the symptoms of CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).
The drug-free chiropractic approach of releasing nerve and spine stress by freeing your body of vertebral subluxations has been a blessing to millions afflicted with this condition.
Years ago telegraph operators, seamstresses, carpenters and meat cutters were the chief sufferers from this condition. Today it’s office workers, computer operators, musicians and assembly line workers who are more prone to it.
Research is revealing that CTS is not only a hand and wrist problem but is also a spinal problem. For example, when 1,000 cases of carpal tunnel syndrome were investigated it was found that a large number of them also had neck arthritis.
- That is one reason why clinicians, researchers and patients have reported relief of classic carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms and improvement in overall body function after chiropractic spinal adjustments.
Anyone suffering from CTS should see a chiropractor to ensure that their spine is free of spinal nerve stress. A chiropractic adjustment may make a difference between a pain-free wrist and hand surgery!
