Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

How do you treat Carpal Tunnel? Does the cockup splint help? Should lit be worn 24/7 ?

Is the neck usually involved?

Hello Lowell,
Firstly, let's be sure you actually have Carpal Tunnel syndrome. That means tingling in the fingers 1-4 and ALWAYS excluding the pinkie. Right?

Any health care problem depends on finding the cause, and that means a decent examination. The median nerve can be trapped or irritated in numerous places, so all along its course, your chiropractor will examine these potential entrapment sites.

Yes the neck is often involved. Not of research confirming that.

No research however that chiropractic or medical treatment helps in the long run.

I presume you've read this page: Carpal tunnel case file ...

Yes, a cock up splint may help.

Good luck.

Find a good chiropractor may be your next step.
