Carpal tunnel syndrome happens to present itself in a number of ways. Carpal tunnel doesn’t simply happen overnight, either.
Painful symptoms that develop from carpal tunnel might take weeks (or even months) before they present themselves and can certainly worsen if you leave these adverse symptoms untreated.
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Symptoms can include:
- Clumsiness (Especially in the Hands)
- Muscle Loss (In the Palm Area)
Carpal tunnel can also get aggravated by diseases like arthritis, diabetes, or even thyroid problems.
One major culprit of carpal tunnel is repetitive behavior. Doing a certain motion or performing a certain task over and over and over again can lead to carpal tunnel.
How Chiropractic Can Help Your Carpal Tunnel
Doctors will generally treat carpal tunnel syndrome with injections, surgery, splints, or even over-the-counter drugs (like Advil or Ibuprofen).
