Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve from your forearm to the palm of your hard, the median nerve, gets compressed at the wrist. Located in the carpal tunnel on the palm of your hand, your median nerve allows you to experience sensation in your thumb, index finger, middle finger, and part of your ring finger. When significant pressure is applied to the median nerve, or your wrist swells, it can can result in pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the fingers or wrist. Hiller Chiropractic is here to help solve your carpal tunnel discomfort so you can live a healthier, more pain-free life.
How Do You Get Carpal Tunnel?
Since carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by median nerve compression, many activities, jobs, and repetitive movements put you at a greater risk for developing carpal tunnel syndrome. It can occur in men and women, although women are three times more likely to have it than men due to having a smaller carpal tunnel. You are also prone to developing carpal tunnel syndrome if you work on an assembly line or in manufacturing, use a keyboard for extended periods of time, and are pregnant or have arthritis. Our experts are dedicated to getting rid of your symptoms and reducing your recovery time.
