Proactive Chiropractic & Rehab Center provides treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and generalized wrist pain in the city of Charlotte. The increase in the use of computers and other portable devices for work and recreation has directly increased the prevalence of CTS and other wrist problems.
Time spent performing repetitive motions—such as typing, texting and swiping—create a tremendous amount of stress on the wrists and other flex points. This problem becomes even worse when correct ergonomics are ignored, increasing the strain on all parts of the body.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) involves the nerves that deliver signals to your hands and wrists. The condition starts with inflammation of the nerves and tendons located within the tunnel of the wrist.
Initially, your fingers may experience a “pins and needles” sensation, and possible numbness. As the condition worsens, the symptoms increase, eventually resulting in pain and weakness throughout your hand and wrists. CTS and associated pain can also reduce the range of motion and functionality of your wrists and fingers.
Dr. Khlebopros specializes in treating the most common types of wrist pain, including carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Surgery for CTS isn’t always effective and sometimes even unnecessary, increasing the risk for post-surgical side effects. Instead, patients have the option of non-invasive chiropractic treatment and physiotherapy, which can reduce the thickening and enlargement of major tendons and nerves within the tunnel of the arm.
Of course, CTS is only one cause of wrist pain. An experienced chiropractor will be able to properly assess your symptoms, uncover the right diagnosis and assist your healing with the most appropriate course of treatment.
For cases involving carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and wrist pain, Dr. Khlebopros performs a series of specific adjustments on the affected nerves and tendons. Areas targeted for treatment range from the wrist to the lumbar area, depending on the source of your problems. In addition to providing symptomatic relief, chiropractors address the underlying structural issues which may trigger repeated CTS and wrist issues.
