Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Austin

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs from overuse- usually from excessive typing, using the mouse, and other repetitive tasks. The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include wrist pain, tingling, numbness, and even loss of handgrip strength. These repetitive tasks cause swelling and pressure on the median nerve which results in pain, tingling, and numbness.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an everyday, common condition seen in our office. It almost always (90%) exists in conjunction with a neck problem, called Double Crush Syndrome. Double Crush Syndrome is a distinct compression of nerves at both the neck and the wrist, which significantly increases symptom intensity. We also find that many wrist problems can originate at the elbow as a result of the same repetitive tasks such as typing and using the mouse. This is called Lateral Epicondylitis, or “Tennis Elbow”. If you do not resolve the problem in all areas, the condition will not go away.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Double Crush Syndrome, and Lateral Epicondylitis can heal with conservative care consisting of specific adjustments of the cervical spine, wrist, and elbow.

Our chiropractic team at Chiropractic Arts Center of Austin, P.C. in Austin understands the frustration that accompanies carpal tunnel syndrome and wants to help you overcome your pain for good.
