If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) then you no doubt are seeking some relief. But perhaps you are wondering what the connection between upper cervical chiropractic and CTS could possibly be. After all, isn't carpal tunnel syndrome a problem with the wrist? Let's take a look at the anatomical science behind using upper cervical chiropractic to provide natural relief for CTS.
We have to start by discussing the fact that CTS isn't necessarily a problem with the wrist so much as it is nerve pain. The fact is that the nerves in your wrist and arm all connect back to the neck. That's why forearm, wrist, and shoulder pain can all be connected to a neck injury.
Many undergo surgery to correct CTS and then don't see benefits from the procedure. Before undertaking elective surgery, why not consider a non-invasive approach such as upper cervical chiropractic. If the pain really is coming from your neck, you may experience fast and natural relief of your symptoms.
If you suffer from CTS, talk to an experienced upper cervical chiropractic practitioner. Such a professional will be in the best position to examine your neck and determine if your pain may be a symptom of an undetected upper neck injury. You may start seeing improvement right from your first adjustment without the need for an expensive surgery with a long recovery time.
