More and more, people are suffering from the distress of repetitive motion caused by activities such as working on the computer, knitting and sewing. Even sports like rowing can cause the tingling, numbness, and pain in the hands and wrist that are associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrom (CTS).
Women are affected by this ailment than men, because the carpal bones found in their wrists are smaller, leaving less room for nerves. When these nerves become inflamed because of repetitive motion, they press against the bones of the carpal tunnel and cause problems.
Springfield chiropractic techniques could include extremity or spinal joint manipulations, ultrasound or other modalities to lessen the inflammation, or stretches and strengthening exercises.
