How Can NUCCA Chiropractic Care Assist with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Have you been experiencing pain, tingling, or numbness in your hands and wrists? If so, you may be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. This common condition can make performing everyday tasks very difficult. Thankfully, chiropractic treatment may be able to help. Keep reading to learn how NUCCA care can assist with carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is carpal tunnel syndrome and what are the common symptoms
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is swelling and pressure inside a wrist structure called the carpal, made up of 8 small bones at its base as well as a ligament joining them together. The carpal tunnel becomes increasingly narrow as you move away from your wrists. The flexor tendons are located inside this passage, and they allow fingers to bend or extend at the metacarpophalangeal joints (the knuckles). This is why it’s important not only when typing but also during other repetitive motions like knitting where one hand needs extra support!
How can NUCCA chiropractic techniques help to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
The traditional chiropractic approach to treating CTS may include a splint and anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroid shots. As of last resort, surgery can be performed but the recovery time will vary depending on the severity of pain experienced by the patient; even if it’s eliminated there is still a risk that symptoms might return over years later due in part to inflammation-causing permanent damage–so always consider other options first!
The NUCCA approach is focused on finding the cause of your pain, not just treating symptoms. This means that practitioners usually examine you before they start working with hands or wrists to determine whether there’s a problem in this area as well – such has been shown to contribute greatly toward causing carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). To discover a vertebral misalignment, x-rays or computerized tomography (CT) scans of the cervical (upper neck) region are performed. Insight Subluxation Station space-age technology is used to scan, measure and monitor the nervous system for possible irritation. If a nerve impairment has been discovered in the wrist and specific gentle adjustments, by hand, are required to correct the misaligned vertebrae in the brain stem. Spinal balance must be achieved and maintained for long-term symptom relief without the need for drugs or surgery.
What are some of the benefits of NUCCA treatment for those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome
NUCCA chiropractic technique is a gentle, non-invasive treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) that can be used as an alternative to drugs or surgery. The focus is on correcting the underlying cause of your pain, which is often a misaligned vertebra in the neck. This will take pressure off of the spinal nerves and relieve symptoms. NUCCA chiropractors believe our central nervous system controls and coordinates all the systems of our body, so it’s essential that we keep it functioning properly for optimal health!
How often should you see a NUCCA chiropractor for treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
Upper cervical spine treatment is often a fast process. Adjustments are usually made over the course of several days, depending on the severity of your condition. Once your symptoms have improved, you may only need to see your NUCCA chiropractor for maintenance adjustments every few months or so.
Are there any risks associated with NUCCA chiropractic care?
NUCCA is a gentle, non-invasive treatment with no known side effects. As with any type of healthcare, there are always risks involved. However, these are typically low and related to the underlying condition being treated. For example, if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, the risks associated with NUCCA care are usually lower than those associated with drugs or surgery. You could probably feel some soreness or stiffness in your neck after your adjustments, but this is typically short-lived and will resolve on its own.
