Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) include numbness, tingling and/or pain in he hand and wrist. With a large percentage of the population using keyboards either at work or at home, CTS is becoming increasingly common. Often CTS is misdiagnosed, with the symptoms being caused by postural alterations or vertebral misalignments. Our doctors are trained to diagnose and correct the true cause of your ailment. In addition to chiropractic, many other treatments including physical therapy and advanced technology such as the FDA low level laser therapy(LLLT) are available at Bradford Family Chiropractic for treatment of CTS.
Just how effective is manual therapy and Chriopractic for CTS? One study, published and conducted by researchers from the Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota, compared chiropractic treatment of CTS to conservative medical treatment. The chiropractic treatment included manipulation, ultrasound treatment, and wrist supports, while the medical group received an anti-inflammatory drug (ibuprofen) and wore wrist supports. They found that both methods of treatment proved to be equally effective and recommended that patients with CTS who are sensitive to medical side effects pursue chiropractic for treatment.
