Carpel tunnel, as well as any number of other local entrapment neuropathies, is a type of a condition that chiropractic can treat very effectively. Carpel tunnel can be complicated because it often results from multiple causes, rarely just an impingement at the carpel tunnel. To solve the issue it is necessary to trace the nerve back up into the neck because you can have multiple levels of entrapment, and if you’ve only fixed one they you have only fixed part of the problem. The treatment of it is often times at the wrist, the elbow, shoulder, neck, or somewhere in between. Getting to the true cause—or causes-- and correcting it without surgery is what chiropractic is all about.
