Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or CTS is now so common it’s been called the ‘occupational disease of the 1990′s.” Symptoms include tingling and numbness in the hand, fingers and wrist; pain so intense that it awakens you at night and similar symptoms in the upper arm, elbow, shoulder or neck. Increasing numbers of people are seeking chiropractic care. As one researcher has written: “Faulty innervation caused by spinal joint lesions is one of the main factors in the productimi of wrist swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, [and] tennis elbow.”
THE CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH
Although chiropractic’s success with shoulder, arm and hand problems is well documented. The chiropractic approach to a person’s health problems is very different from the medical approach. Rather than treat the condition a patient has, the chiropractor concentrates on the health of the patient.
Chiropractic is devoted to correcting abnormal spinal structural conditions called vertebral subluxations. Spinal nerve stress which cause abnormal spine and joint motion and nervous system stress. Unless corrected, vertebral subluxations can cause or contribute to many health conditions and prevent or interfere with the normal healing process.
YOUR INNER HEALER
The chiropractor specializes in analyzing your spinal column for vertebral subluxations and correcting them when found. In this way the chiropractor helps restore the healthy flow of nerve impulses between the brain and the body parts.
