Ann Arbor Chiropractor Can Relieve Carpal Tunnel Pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the tendons and nerves in the wrist and hand.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Do you have a physically demanding job? Are you experiencing pain in your hands or fingers?

You may have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to pain and inflammation of the hand, wrist, and fingers, caused by pressure on the median nerve. In your wrist, there's a pathway called the carpal tunnel, which houses tendons, ligaments, and the median nerve. If any of the tendons swell or degrade, it can affect the size of the carpal tunnel making it more narrow, leading to compression of the Median nerve. If the pain persists, surgery is usually recommended.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel?

There are many factors that can cause carpal tunnel. Professions that utilize the hands or wrists, such as chefs, dentists, artists, athletes, machinists, office workers, and more are susceptible to overusing or straining these areas and developing carpal tunnel. Those with previous wrist strain, injury, or arthritis can also develop carpal tunnel.
