Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The main symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome center around pain and discomfort in the hands and wrists. Numbness and tingling are commonly reported as well due to compression of the nerve fibers in the wrist. Many patients will start to lose their grip strength or even start to suddenly drop items in their grasp as this condition progresses.

Prevention of Carpal Tunnel

Pain and discomfort caused by this condition revolve around median nerve damage in the wrist. The pain may develop after an acute injury to the wrist, such as a fracture, or from arthritic conditions. Repetitive stress on the wrist can also cause this condition to develop due to inflammation that compresses the nerves. Other causative factors include fluid retention, chronic illnesses, and obesity.

You can reduce your risks of developing carpal tunnel syndrome by frequently stretching your hands and wrists, checking your form while working and wearing long gloves to keep your wrists warm. Although these tactics do not fully prevent this painful condition, stress minimization gives you a chance to avoid wrist pain and discomfort well into the future.

Wrist splinting is another common tactic used during treatment to reduce symptoms that commonly occur while in bed at night. Your chiropractor will help you find the best combination of treatments for your exact needs.
