Chiropractic for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The problem with your wrist may be caused by a misalignment of the joints in your neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
Chiropractic techniques are commonly thought to only help the spine, however they can be applied to other joints of the body like your wrists, ankles, etc.
Virtually every joint in your body is susceptible to malfunctions that impair your range of motion. Trauma or repetitive motions are often the culprits.
The carpal tunnel is a band of ligaments and small bones in your wrists. The painful symptoms associated with carpal tunnel are caused by a collapse of the "tunnel" nerve which compresses the nerves in your wrist.
Your Spine and Your Wrist
Many patients are surprised to learn that their wrist problem may be caused by the joints in their neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. Subluxations (spinal misalignments) in the uppers spine may compromise the workings of any structure in your body down to the tip of your pinky finger!

- Can chiropractic help with bone spurs?
- Bone spurs and other arthritic changes to the joints are a common response to a long-standing malfunction. Restoring proper joint function will hopefully at least slow this degenerative process.
- Can cracking your knuckles cause damage?
- Knuckle cracking does not damage the metacarpal joints of your hand. However there is a danger of overextending already loose knuckle joints. Restoring motion to these or other joints of the body is best left to an experienced professional.
- Will a wrist brace help?
- Braces are often prescribed to help protect the wrist and reduce mobility which causes pain. While it may help to alleviate certain symptoms, it essentially ignores the malfunctioning joints that are causing the problem. Chiropractic treatment will help restore proper motion to the affected joints and strengthen supporting muscles and soft tissues. Most patients are able to resume activities without a brace.
