Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a painful nerve problem that interferes with the use of your hand. It occurs when tissue or bone puts pressure on the nerve that runs from your neck through your wrist to your fingers. Initially, you may have numbness, tingling, or burning in your hand. Shooting pain in your wrist or forearm may follow, and your grip may become weak.

Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the pressure that’s causing your wrist pain. Dr. DelPlato may suggest other types of treatment including the use of a splint or brace, electrical stimulation, ice, ultrasound, trigger point therapy and exercises.
