Carpal Tunnel Relief in Mississauga

person with wrist painCarpal tunnel syndrome is a prevalent condition characterized by sensations of numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand and forearm. It occurs when one of the primary nerves in the hand gets compressed or squeezed as it passes through the wrist. At Universal Chiropractic in Mississauga, we offer comprehensive chiropractic care and injury treatment to alleviate joint pain.


What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to Develop?

Carpal tunnel syndrome emerges when the passageway narrows, or there is swelling in the tissue surrounding the flexor tendons. This swelling applies pressure to the median nerve, restricting its blood supply. The resulting abnormal pressure on the nerve leads to symptoms such as hand weakness, numbness, tingling, or pain.

Typical Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The symptoms generally manifest in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers, often interrupting sleep at night. Some individuals may also experience sporadic sensations, like electric shocks radiating to these fingers, or pain and tingling traveling toward the shoulder. Weakness, clumsiness in the hand, and difficulty performing delicate movements can also indicate the presence of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Initial symptoms can often be alleviated during the early stages with simple measures. For example, wearing a wrist splint while sleeping, engaging in exercises to keep the nerve mobile, avoiding activities that worsen symptoms, and receiving a steroid injection into the carpal tunnel are all effective ways to relieve discomfort. However, if pressure on the median nerve persists, it can lead to nerve damage and more severe symptoms.

Carpal tunnel syndrome develops gradually, without a specific injury. Symptoms may appear intermittently, but may occur more frequently and last longer. Nighttime symptoms are particularly common when sleeping in a bent position. Throughout the day, symptoms arise when the wrist is held in a bent place, either forward or backward.

Chiropractic care can be a viable option for those seeking non-invasive and effective solutions. Chiropractors employ manual manipulations and hands-on techniques to relieve tension, strain, and nerve compression. These specialized treatments aim to realign the body, providing healing and relief directly at the source of the pain.
