Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated using upper cervical chiropractic. Cervical chiropractic relates fundamentally to the neck, and is named from the Latin cervix meaning the neck or nape of the neck. The term cervical in relation to the womb refers to the neck-like passage leading to the womb.
With respect to chiropractic, cervical chiropractic refers to the neck itself – the top bones of the cervical spine. Problems here can be simple, such as muscle tension and poor posture, but can also be serious such as with arthritis, bulges of the disc or even spinal misalignments known as subluxations. These can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Upper cervical chiropractic refers to issues with the top of the spine, or the spinal cervix. One of these is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This is a painful disorder that is caused by pressure to the median nerve running from the neck down the shoulder to the arm and then the forearm. It eventually reaches the wrist and then the hand.
The nerve concerned is a major one for the hand in that it controls function of the thumb, index finger and middle finger. In other words, the first three digits of the hand. That’s why carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain and a burning sensation in the wrist and sometime the entire forearm.
Ultimately, it can cause people to lose control of their hand and drop objects they try to lift. They may even have difficulty in using the affected hand at all. It is difficult to turn doorknobs and even in lifting small objects such as knife and fork or even a pen. So it is a serious condition affecting everyday life.
CTS is an Upper Cervical Condition
CTS is an upper cervical condition, so it makes sense that upper cervical chiropractic should be able to treat it – and so it proves! The traditional treatment is surgery – cutting of a ligament to reduce the effect of CTS on these nerves. It’s like cutting holes in your pockets so you can’t keep anything in them. So they cannot be picked by pickpockets! Don’t cure the cause, cure the symptoms!
The ligament in question is a transverse carpal ligament which temporarily weakens the ability of the hand to grasp objects tightly. Sometimes this weakness last a long time after surgery and you will have a scar. Upper cervical chiropractic can solve this problem without the need for surgery – so why not try it first?
Upper Cervical Chiropractic For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Upper cervical chiropractic can offer alternative solutions to many problems associated with the top of the neck. There are no reasons why you should not try this type of non-invasive solution and many reasons why you should. Not only does it work, but if upper cervical chiropractic was not as effective as claimed, why is it still very popular, and a preferred solution many problems for many people.
If it was not an effective solution for so many issues connected with the central nervous system, why is it still being used successfully by so many people? If you are still using traditional medicine for a long-lasting problem then why not try upper cervical chiropractic. Many have done so. Many have never had to return. Many have been cured and have returned when they have had another issue.
So try it: upper cervical chiropractic can remove the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other conditions. Do not knock any treatment you have never tried yourself.
