Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or a Double Crush?

Shoulder weaknessCarpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, you are likely seeking relief. Some doctors may recommend surgery to correct the problem which can result in a long painful recovery and doesn't guarantee results. This is because CTS treatments may not be treating the underlying cause of your pain or other symptoms. This is where the double crush phenomenon comes into play. What is that?

Double crush phenomenon is when a neck problem ends up showing up further down the central nervous system, often in areas such as the shoulder, arm, or wrist. While researchers are still running trials, double crush syndrome clearly explains why carpal tunnel syndrome treatments don't always work. If the underlying cause of the problem is in the neck, then treatment needs to be focused there. This is where upper cervical chiropractic can prove beneficial.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

Upper cervical chiropractic addresses the top two vertebrae in the neck. These are positioned right where the brain meets the spinal cord. Injuries in this sensitive area can result in pains and problems all over the body. Before electing to take a surgery that could result in more pain and symptoms and not even fix your problem, why not look into upper cervical chiropractic to see if this non-invasive, natural approach can work for you? You may be surprised at how quickly and easily you can find relief by attacking your pain at the source instead of just dealing with the symptoms.
