Carpal TunnelA common medical condition characterized by pain, numbness and weakness in the hands, wrists and forearms, carpal tunnel syndrome sends many men and women to King Chiropractic in Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac, and Gaithersburg to see a chiropractor every year. Have your hands and wrists been hurting lately and you think carpal tunnel may be to blame? Here are three things a chiropractor can do for you.

1. Diagnose Your Carpal Tunnel

Your wrists hurt, but is it carpal tunnel? A chiropractor can let you know for sure. Chiropractors diagnose carpal tunnel using tests like the pressure-provocative test and the carpal compression test, both of which apply pressure to the nerves in your arm to reach a diagnosis. Whether you have carpal tunnel or a related condition, you will want a proper diagnosis so you can begin the most effective treatment plan possible.

2. Educate You

If your chiropractor finds that you do have carpal tunnel, you will undoubtedly have several questions. Your chiropractor will educate you all about the condition and answer any questions you might have. He or she will also like inform you about common at-home treatments such as rest, lifestyle changes or a wrist brace that will allow you to better manage your pain. The more you know, the better your chances of success will be.

3. Treat Carpal Tunnel

While minor cases of carpal tunnel may be treated with rest, lifestyle changes and wrist braces alone, for more advanced cases, you will likely need to see a chiropractor at King Chiropractic in Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac, and Gaithersburg for regular treatment. Common treatment options include joint manipulation, strengthening exercises and ultrasound therapy. Your chiropractor will work with you to find the treatment plan that is right for you.
