Dr. Andrew Zomick and His Staff Can Treat Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Many people think of a chiropractor as someone who can help with back or neck pain; however, a chiropractor treats more than these two aches. At Stamford Sports & Spine, we take a holistic approach to healthcare when treating a range of problems, including carpal tunnel syndrome. This common condition causes various symptoms that can leave patients with ongoing discomfort without treatment. Below is some information about carpal tunnel syndrome and how Dr. Andrew Zomick and his staff can help you avoid surgery for it.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is an area in the wrist the provides passage for the median nerve, which originates from the neck nerve roots and forming together as one nerve in the hand. The median nerve allows motor function around the thumb and feeling to all fingers but the little one. If the nerve becomes irritated or squeezed, it can lead to this syndrome and cause swelling, inflammation, numbness or tingling, or weakness in the hand.
How Does Dr. Andrew Zomick and His Staff Treat the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, a physician might have told you that you need surgery to correct the issue. But, surgery includes a range of risks, can take months to heal, and can make the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome return after several months. Fortunately, there are treatment options available for this condition without going under the knife.
At Stamford Sports & Spine, we look for the root of the problem rather than tending the symptoms. After a careful examination and determining the main cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome, we will tailor a plan for you so that you recover from it. We may adjust the wrist to relieve the pressure on the nerve and to promote the healing responses in the body. We may also recommend exercises to improve the range of movement in your hand, and cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation and swelling. These natural and non-invasive therapies prevent the condition from recurring in the future.
