Carpal Tunnel in Frisco

Carpal Tunnel FriscoCarpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is usually caused by repetitive motion, such as typing, texting, or assembly line work, increasing the amount of irritation or inflammation going to the wrist. Over time, such actions may produce pain and injury.

At Venn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we see pinched nerves in the neck as the cause in 99% of our cases, due to poor posture. Most people with carpal tunnel in Frisco experience tingling or numbness in the fingers and hand or weakness in the hand.

What many don’t realize is that the problem may be due to functional changes to joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

Our Natural Approach to Carpal Tunnel Treatment in Frisco

If needed, we do an extraspinal adjustment for the wrist. After that, a specific chiropractic evaluation of the neck is done to locate nerve impingement. If found, we provide gentle chiropractic care to the area to release the pressure off the nerve, and adjust your upper spine.

It may also be advisable to rest the affected arm, apply cold to decrease inflammation, and perform specific carpal tunnel Frisco exercises. You can also wear a splint or brace to immobilize the area. In some cases, we recommend exercises to strengthen the opposing muscles, which have become weaker.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

A brace is often prescribed to help protect the wrist and keep it immobilized. While it may alleviate some symptoms, wearing a brace doesn’t address the malfunctioning joints that are causing the problem. Chiropractic care at our Frisco clinic addresses the root cause.

How many visits will I need?

It’s important to understand that not everyone will see a difference in one visit. Sometimes it will take a few more.

I’ve previously had surgery for my CTS; can chiropractic still benefit me?

Absolutely yes! Oftentimes, carpal tunnel surgery fails because they are looking only at where the symptom lies and not at the underlying problem. If there is a pinched nerve in the neck or upper back that was the original cause, which it most commonly is, we still can see great results from chiropractic care even after carpal tunnel in Frisco surgery.
