Every condition is different, and each patient is treated specifically to their individual needs
Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, weakness and tingling in the hand due to an injury or inflammation of the median nerve. It is a repetitive motion injury of the wrist. It specifically refers to an injury or compression of the median nerve as it travels through the carpal tunnel, which is comprised of bones, ligaments and other soft tissues. If the bones become misaligned or the ligaments become inflamed or thickened, they can cause a narrowing of the carpal tunnel, which compresses the median nerve.
Know more about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, what causes it and what chiropractic care can do for you.
Carpal tunnel causes numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and first three fingers. It can also cause shooting pains up the arm to the elbow, and in severe instances, it can cause the muscle in the base of the thumb to atrophy.

CTS is diagnosed via a physical exam and by taking a medical history and description of symptoms. Our chiropractor may also have you perform certain tasks in order to reproduce the symptoms in our Philadelphia office. Once a complete diagnosis has been made, a treatment program will be developed for you.

Reduces Pain and Numbness
Chiropractic adjustments are performed by our Philadelphia chiropractor Dr. Stuart Himmelstein in order to ensure that the small bones in your wrist are properly aligned. This can help reduce inflammation and give your median nerve more room, which will improve your symptoms and increase the function of your wrist and hand. It may take several sessions before your symptoms have dramatically improved
