Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CST) is a repetitive stress injury (RPI)  caused by repetitive motion, such as typing, or completing repetitive motions with the hands like assembly line work or playing a musical instrument that may cause pain and injury over time. Chiropractic care is beneficial for patients who are searching for noninvasive, drug-free relief from this injury. Chiropractic care involves treatment of the wrist, elbow and upper spine. In some cases, it may be recommended that you wear a splint or brace to immobilize the area, take time to rest or apply cold to reduce inflammation.

Because spinal alignment does affect this condition, Dr. Wheatcroft will use adjustments of the wrist, elbow and upper spine to help the body come back into alignment to heal itself. Dr. Wheatcroft might also use Graston technique, a soft-tissue manipulation treatment, which has been highly effective at achieving quick relief.
