Altamonte Springs, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2013 -- Altamonte Health and Wellness and Dr. Kenneth Ross DC, Apopka FL chiropractor, are pleased to announce procedures for obtaining relief for carpal tunnel symptoms. The pain can be significant, and interfere with performance of work or other types of activities. Since the symptoms often arise due to repetitive motions of the hands or wrists, growth of discomfort when performing such activities will cause problems on the job.
When speaking to an interviewer recently, Dr. Kenneth Ross, Apopka FL chiropractor, explained, "Chiropractic techniques used in therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome have advantages over traditional medical procedures. There are no invasive surgical procedures performed, and no painkillers or drugs are used to mask pain symptoms as is the case with traditional medicine."
"The pain of carpal tunnel arises when the narrow bony channel that carries the median nerve from the forearm to certain fingers becomes irritated or compressed" he continues. "Pressure on the nerve itself is interpreted by the brain as pain. The electrical signals are not able to be transmitted freely from the fingers to the brain and back again. This may lead to weakness in the affected area, as well as pain."
Traditional procedures cut into the transverse carpal ligament at the base of the palm. This releases the pressure on the median nerve which relieves the symptoms. The area that was cut fills with scar tissue. There is minimal recovery time involved. Using chiropractic techniques avoid the surgical process, so is less costly. Chiropractic therapy uses manipulation of the wrist, elbow, and upper spine, ultrasound therapy, and wrist supports. Some studies support the use of chiropractics for CTS.
