This occupational health problem affects millions of people a year. It is often a problem caused by pressure placed on the nerves when doing common daily activities. Just some symptoms caused by carpal tunnel can include, but aren’t limited to, weakness or loss of grip strength, tingling, burning, numbness, and wrist pain. A chiropractor can often adjust your neck or back to help heal the median nerve that connects to your wrist and causes these painful symptoms related to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
The longer you go without seeking treatment, the more complications may arise, and the more likely they may become permanent injuries. In fact, many whiplash victims who have already settled their insurance claims after an accident state they still suffer from the symptoms of the auto accident. So, even though you may not be in pain right now, it is better to be safe than sorry.
