What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome, also known as median nerve compression, is a disease affecting the nerves and tendons in the hand. The median nerve runs through the hand and into the fingers, and when it is pressed against on a regular basis it causes carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition can be prevented and treated using chiropractic care by our chiropractor in Bossier City, LA.

How can I Protect Myself From Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

There are several things you can do on a routine basis to protect yourself from carpal tunnel syndrome. If you write or type every day, work on using proper ergonomics for using a pen or keyboard. This includes holding your wrist in a relaxed position, as you avoid bending your wrist whenever possible. Also, when you sleep or rest, do not bend your wrist but instead leave it in a relaxed and outstretched position. 

How Does Your Chiropractor in Bossier City, LA Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

When you visit our chiropractor in Bossier City, LA to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, we begin with a chiropractic diagnosis of the median nerve in your affected hand. We may also perform a chiropractic adjustment to realign your musculoskeletal system. For painful conditions we can help reduce pain using dry needling therapy.
