Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome causes numbness, tingling and a weakness in the wrist or hands. If you have any of these symptoms, it could be a sign that you’re suffering from a serious neurological condition. Let 417 Spine alleviate these symptoms and prevent them from coming back.

What Commonly Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Poor Ergonomics

One of the most common causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is poor ergonomics in the workplace, especially if you use a computer for most of your work day. The positioning of your hands and head while at a computer have a massive impact on the function and structure of your hands and wrists.

Neck Problems

Despite what it may seem, the wrist is not the only area that causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Dysfunctions of the neck and cervical structure can often affect the nerves that enter the arm and lead to symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Muscle & Joint Issues

Problem areas in the neck, shoulder, elbow, and even the forearm can cause symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. We assess the muscle patterns and joints throughout these regions to identify the correct area where the nerve is being compressed and irritated to eliminate the problem.

How Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Impacts Your Life

Long-Term Damage

Ignoring the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can have long-lasting and sometimes even permanent effects on the body. Whether you’re experiencing a slight tingling or numbness in your wrist, or you have lost the ability to use fine manipulation in your hands, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms shouldn’t be ignored if you want to prevent permanent nerve damage.

Loss of Muscle Strength

Pressure on the nerve can cause numbness and tingling in the hands and wrist. This pressure can lead to a significant loss of muscle strength and dexterity in the area. When this occurs, you are often unable to do even the simplest of activities such as holding a cup of coffee, typing on a computer, or lifting your groceries out of your car.

Sleep Issues & Long-Term Stress

Waking up in the middle of the night with numb hands or an aching arm is a common complaint with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This pattern of uneasy sleep can have a tremendous effect on your daily tasks. It can cause drowsiness at work and a lack of energy throughout the day while trying to enjoy your favorite activities.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a neurological disorder but is often caused by impingement of nerves due to muscle tightness. The use of massage therapy can help eliminate the symptoms quickly.
