Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can cause a lot of pain in the wrist and hand. Not all hand and wrist pain is considered to be CTS. True carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed and irritated. The median nerve travels through a tunnel of the wrist made of of carpal bones (bones of the hand) and connective tissue, mainly the transverse carpal ligament.
The surgical solution is to cut the transverse carpal ligament, a ligament that supports the wrist. At Good 2 Go Chiropractic, we first must accurately confirm that your pattern of pain is consistent with CTS, making sure it is not related to another underlying issue.
Once we identify the issue, we can use a variety of techniques such as A.R.T., IASTM, manipulations, nerve flossing, and other techniques to get you back to being pain-free. It all starts with an accurate diagnosis and through examination.
